Tickets for Lights, Camel, Action!

Letters went home at the start of last week to P2-4 pupils for ticket orders for the First Level Show ‘Lights, Camel, Action’. Tickets are £1 each and there is a 2 ticket limit per family (for now!). Please make sure your ticket order slips and money are returned by tomorrow (Monday 3rd Dec) if you would like to come and see it – don’t miss out!

After we have allocated all the ticket orders we will see how many seats we have still available and should then be able to send out a letter for families to purchase ‘additional tickets’ if they would like more.

Look forward to seeing you all on either Tuesday 11th December at 1.45pm or Thursday 13th December at 6.30pm.

Online Chain-Letter Scam

A quick post to advise parents to check any electronic devices that your child may use, for any ‘chain-letter’ style emails or messages which involve a made-up person called Teresa Findalgo.

A few MOL pupils have received this via social media. This is a scam and should not be opened or actioned as it may allow the creator to have unwanted access to individual accounts.

Please advise your child to delete immediately.

Bake sale

Thanks to the generous donations of home bakes for today’s MOL market, we have plenty of delicious home baking that we plan to sell tomorrow at break time for 20p a piece! Please remember to bring 20p with you to school tomorrow if you would like to buy a treat at break-time. Proceeds will go to the P7 social enterprise. Thank you.

 

 

MOL Market

Well done to the whole P7 team for their hard work in organising today’s MOL Market. It was brilliant to see so many members of the community coming to enjoy some time together at the market and purchase some of the fantastic crafts produced by P7. We also enjoyed hearing Christmas songs from P6, P5 and P5/6. A big thank you to everyone for coming and for your generosity, and to the staff team for their enthusiasm, commitment and support for P7 and their social enterprise. Finally, thank you to every individual P7 pupil for your creativity and determination to make the event the success it was – well done all!

 

Photo Shoot Fundraiser!

A big thanks to Kellie Calder and the Parent Council for the two Saturday photo shoot fundraisers that have taken place over the last few weekends to raise money for various school projects but mainly to allow us to buy some new running vests.

This has been done entirely voluntarily and as a result, £455 has been raised which is a superb amount and as you can see from the photos above, the end result for any parents who got photos taken, is of a very high standard.

Kellie hopes to repeat this event next year for anyone interested.

Thanks, Kellie!

 

MOL Market – 1 Day To Go

 

 

Two years ago our most popular product was hand crafted candles! Last year candles were popular but we had a few left over.  This year we have up-cycled our left over candles to give them a new lease of life! All candles are created by hand, using soya wax and natural colouring and dies. The glass jars have been gathered by our school community. They have been decorated by using driftwood that some of the P7 pupils collected from Dores beach. We also recycled old Christmas decorations to decorate the smaller candles.

This year we have 65 candles to sell and they will be priced at £3 – £5 each.

It’s not long to go now until the pupils from P2-4 will be performing their First Level Christmas show! The show this year is ‘Lights, Camel, Action’ and will be sure to get you laughing, singing and dancing along!

The boys and girls from all the classes have been working hard over the past few weeks in the lead up to the show; they have been designing props and backdrops, learning lines, creating dance moves and memorising lots of catchy songs. It’s been great to see all the hard work and excitement and we’re looking forward to performing for you all!

Information about ordering tickets will come home by letter very soon but just a reminder that we will be putting on 2 performances; an afternoon showing on Tuesday 11th December at 1.45pm, and an evening showing on Thursday 13th December at 6.30pm.

So save those dates, and we’ll see you soon 🙂

INTRODUCING ANOTHER NEW PRODUCT – PALLET CHRISTMAS TREES

P7 have created a contemporary looking Christmas tree for your garden. P7 were kindly donated pallets from M&H carriers. They have worked hard to break up the pallets and remove the old nails. Our pallet tree team then carefully measured different lengths of wood to size before using a saw to cut them. We have also been supported by one of our night time FM’s Alastair, who has kindly neatened up the edges using his chop-saw. Once each length of wood was cut the team set about painting the pallets before using a drill to assemble the tree. Finally P7 have used old buttons to decorate the tree.

We have 30 pallet Christmas trees available to buy and have the capacity to make to order if required. 🙂

Trees will be sold for £10 each.
