P5 Fundraising Day

Posted by loirstonconnect on February 23, 2015

P5 pupils have been working really hard to organise a great fundraising day. They have come up with some great activities for the rest of the pupils to take part in. The fundraising is based around a Chinese theme as the p5 pupils learnt about China earlier this year. They are hoping to raise enough money to go visit the Pandas in Edinburgh Zoo. The event will take place on Wednesday 25th February in the community lounge. The activities range in prices from 20p – £1. There is also a raffle taking place throughout the week with a single ticket costing 20p and a strip costing £1. The children will come around the classes daily selling tickets. Some of the activities include guess the name of the Panda, guess the Panda’s birthday, toy sale, grain of rice challenge, karate demonstration, nail painting, Chinese crafts and much more. We hope that you will enjoy the activities and look forward to seeing you.

Internet Safety

Posted by loirstonconnect on February 5, 2015

Loirston School is committed to being a school of responsible internet users. We are using an online tool to help us on this journey. It is called 360 degree safe and is recommended by Aberdeen City Council. We feel that this is very important in view of the ever changing world of technology that our young people live in so that we can help them to keep themselves safe and be mindful of others in their use of  social media and mobile phones.

To help us achieve this goal we have identified the priorities and set up a committee of pupils. This group of pupils will be called the ISRU (Internet Safety and Responsible Use) Team. They will start by looking at rules and sanctions for the use of mobile phones in school.We will be introducing the team to the school at assembly in the next few weeks. The plan is that they will promote the message of responsible use to the whole school community and that other pupils can go to them if they are worried about anything. We will let you know about any developments in the next few weeks.

We are sure that you will support us in the journey towards responsible use of the internet both in school and at home. Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries.
