Scholastic Book Fair – S3 Pupils from Kincorth Academy

Posted by loirstonconnect on April 22, 2014

Dear Parent/Carer

Scholastic Book Fair – S3 Pupils from Kincorth Academy

Mr Clark and Mrs Skinner from Kincorth Academy have been working with some S3 pupils running a business around a Scholastic book Fair as part of their course work. The S3 pupils (who are former Loirston pupils) would like to take their business to the Primary Schools in our area. With this in mind the pupils will be coming down to Loirston School tomorrow at 12.15pm to offer our pupils the opportunity to purchase a book from their Book Fair. They will have a selection of books from Scholastic, these can be viewed online at:

Should you wish your child to purchase something from the fair please put some money in an envelope marked S3 Book fair and we will ensure they get the opportunity to purchase their book at lunchtime.

Many thanks

Loirston School Bulletin No 8

Posted by loirstonconnect on April 3, 2014

Tel:  897686      April 2014





Dear Parents/Carers

It is hard to believe we are already into April and approaching Easter at speed.  It has been a very busy term and we have all been working very hard.  The dark early mornings are beginning to disappear and it is nice to see some brighter weather appearing.  We have been really fortunate to have had a “Snow Free” term.

Dates for Your Diary

4/4/13- School closes for Easter Break

22/4/14 – School re-opens for staff and pupils

22/4/14 – Easter Bingo Evening


Staff have just completed writing their yearly reports to go home at the end of term.  The purpose of the report is to give you an overall picture of your child’s progress across this session.  This year the report will be the same format as last year.  We hope you find the information provided useful and welcome your comments on the feedback sheet attached.  Should you have any queries regarding the report please do not hesitate to contact the school to arrange to see the class teacher following the Easter break.


As you may have noticed the wardens have been operating in the Cove area addressing concerns they have about appropriate parking. Unfortunately the school was also subject to an article recently in the Evening Express. 

It is important that we all consider other road users when finding a place to park to drop off children at school.  I have been asked by the local Police Service  to remind all Parents/Carers that it is a road traffic offence to obstruct the road for other users and a fixed penalty can be issued.  The wardens will be carrying out regular checks in the area over the coming term to ensure this is not an ongoing problem.  Can I also remind parents that the staff car park should not be used to drop off and pick up children.  I would also like to note that the turning point is not meant for parking. The signs clearly state no parking between 8.30 and 9.15am and 2.45 – 3.30pm.  We regularly have buses booked for classes to go out of school and the bus needs to be able to park and leave at the appropriate times. Many thanks in advance for your co-operation.

I have also had a small number of parents noting that when they call the school they appear to be getting the answer machine and do not want to leave a message regarding reasons for absence etc.  Please be assured that Maureen checks the message service many times during the school day. You will appreciate that Maureen is very busy and often has to leave the office with messages etc. Therefore if you do have information you want to give us or would like a ring back please leave a message and we will of course get back to you.

Please can we also make sure that we don’t have dogs on school grounds in accordance with ACC policy.

Finally should your child be late for school, please drop them off at reception.  Due to safety we cannot allow parents to walk through the school.  Thank you for your understanding.

Sainsbury Vouchers

Many thanks for all the vouchers we have already received.  We are still collecting and really appreciate your support.

Easter Family Bingo

On Tuesday 22nd April we will be having our annual Easter Family Bingo evening organized by our Parent Council.  We would welcome all to come along and enjoy some games and maybe even win a chocolate or two! Doors open at 6.30 pm.  We look forward to seeing you there!

On behalf of all the staff and pupils here at Loirston I would like to wish you all a lovely Easter break, I hope you all enjoy your holiday and look forward to welcoming you back in two weeks.  Thank you for all your continued support here at school we all really do appreciate it.

Happy Easter!

The children in p4/5 were asked to make a model of a Viking House for homework. Look at the amazing and very authentic looking models that they made. Sam even made a cake that looked just too good to eat. Well done to them.

We are having a temporary problem with our P4-7 Skooville accounts. They have been turned lite as there was a mix up with our invoice. This will be sorted out as soon as possible so please reassure your child that their account will be back to normal shortly. Pupils in P4 have recently been given their login details for Skooville and parents/ carers can find more information here.
