Our Clan Chiefs 2021-22

Before the half term holidays Dalry Primary was experiencing election fever as the annual vote to choose our Clan Chiefs and Deputes arrived.

Our Elected Representatives for 2021-22

In the weeks before polling day the candidates wrote and performed amazing video hustings speeches and produced brilliant campaign posters. Many staff commented that this election was the hardest and most passionately fought in their time at Dalry. Each morning before school and at break and lunch candidates were seen canvassing for support and waving banners.

Dalry democracy has never been healthier.

Our election day results were announced by Mr Linton and P6 who put on a brilliant election day special assembly teams call.

It was only last week that Mrs Honeyman was able to present the successful candidates with their official badges of office. So now that they have their proper accoutrements of office let us present the Chiefs and Deputes for 2021-22

A Council of Chiefs

Today our clan chiefs and deputes held a council with some members of the parent and carer’s council.

If you are interested in being active in the parent council the next meeting is very soon. Also several posts are urgently needing to be filled to allow the council to function.

Dalry Elections 2020

Over the two weeks before autumn break Dalry was busy with our yearly elections.

We would normally have 2 assemblies featuring hustings but thanks to COVID-19 this year we had to do video hustings. All candidates had written passionate speeches putting forth their reasons for standing and the attributes and policies that would make them good for their role.

Any of our amazing candidates would have brought something special to the role, we were truly impressed with the way each and every candidate conducted their campaigns and we congratulate all of them on the hard work, thought and effort that led to the hustings and elections.

After these 2 weeks of campaigning via poster and video election day arrived.

Again this was unusual! We would normally have announced this at assembly but this year that was impossible, so Mr Linton and P5/6 stepped up to make the day extra special by running an election count themed announcement over teams.

Scenes at both the count and in classes were electric.

Christmas Clan Enterprise Day

We had an amazing Christmas Enterprise day on Wednesday. The Clan Chiefs and Deputes planned a range of wonderful Christmas and Winter Christmas craft activities for all of the children in their own Clans with the staff. Thanks to the huge amount of parents who volunteered to come in and support this fabulous festive event. A big thank you to Mrs Mason and Miss Kelly who organise this event behind the scenes, and make sure it runs smoothly every year! We all had so much fun!

 

Harvest Festival

The Clan Chiefs and Deputes organised an amazing Harvest Foodbank Collection. The many generous donations from our families were collected at our recent Parents Consultations after the Clan Chief group spoke at assembly and sent flyers home with all of our children to promote the collection. The group organised and displayed the collection in Mrs Honeyman’s office before packing the collection up in an organised way to drop off at Gorgie Salvation Army. The group helped to load up Mrs Honeyman’s tiny car with the collection, and Aoife helped Mrs Honeyman to deliver the donations.
