The winter bugs are really upon us…here’s hoping we all build up immunity that our bodies have missed out on over the last few years. Please remember to keep your child off for 48 hours even if it looks like a full recovery as often the bug is still in our systems so not only do we pass it on, if we’re not fully clear there’s more chance of it catching us again!

Thank you to P3 and P5 for organising Children in Need today. They will tell you the amount raised next week. Good spotty fun all day today to cheer us up in the rain.

See below for child payments you may be entitled to.

Ms Cunningham is our new Senior Early Years Practitioner. She started on Monday and will be working in all the rooms to get to know everyone for a couple of weeks before settling down to helping us continue to make Smithton ELC the best place it can be to lay the foundations of learning at the school.

Photos tonight are star awards, Paige’s success with collecting, wrapping and handing over shoeboxes to Blythswood, P4 and COP27 speaking to Egypt (more on this next week – we have budding politicians!) mark making in nursery ready for writing, Children in Need and some photos of P7s comparing them to when they were wee and cute…

Have a good weekend.

Aileen Mackay, HT
