Mr D. ran one of the most anticipated assemblies of the year today.
The Dalry SPorts day and PE Star awards.
The winning teams from the lower and upper school were first up for their medals.
They were followed by Mr D’s PE Stars. Mr D. chooses his PE stars based on who has shown the most effort and determination in PE rather than simply those with the best results. PBs and PMA are first in Dalry PE.
A new award was presented at leavers assembly this year.
Created by the family of Jim Douglas, a former Dalry pupil who left Edinburgh to become a leading publisher in Canada, the award celebrates outstanding contribution to the school from a pupil in P5-7 who has embodied our school values:
Together we are respectful, included, responsible and kind.
Primary 6 had a fantastic time at their recent camp!
We were so lucky to experience so many different activities including wall climbing, crate stacking, archery and making fires!
Everyone did a fantastic job of supporting each other to challenge themselves and face their fears. Day 2 was very wet and muddy but it didn’t stop us having fun, in fact we decided to embrace it by jumping in the mud puddles and have rolly polly races down the hill, it was great fun! If only we could do it all again!
Mrs Mason and Mrs Honeyman got that warn fuzzy feeling as we listened to all the ways in which our children and families have made a difference as part of this terms Building Resilience learning.
Some of the ways they have made a difference include helping out at home, litter picking, planting a wildflower meadow, raising money for charity, building a bug hotel, recycling clothes and toys, looking after baby siblings and writing a rap of ways to save the planet.
We also learned about the way that the staff team have made a difference by running the Edinburgh Marathon in three relay teams. They raised over £800 for Barnardos and Richmond Hope. Both of these charities work with children in our school and make a real difference to their lives.
