SPS Talent Show
Friday 13th May 2022 was a monumental day for us as a school. This was the first time in over 2 years that the whole school had been able to gather together and first time ever for P1 and P2s. We were treated to some wonderful performances from talented pupils in our talent show. Thank you to the House Captains and Mrs Benson who pulled it all together. Congratulations to all those who took part in the auditions on Wednesday and the top 5 from each house who performed in today's finals. Our final three winners were Kasper (p6) in 1st place playing the nova drums, Isla (p6) in 2nd place playing the piano and Eva (p1) third place singing Spring Chicken. As the results were being counted we were treated to a singalong with everyone joining in to sing some Disney classics.
Cross Country - Springburn Harriers
On 24th April over 40 children from Strathblane Primary and Nursery took part in the Springburn Harriers cross country races. All of our runners did really well and completed their races. We had three children who had podium finishes and one that very narrowly missed out! Jessica Taylor got 3rd place in the preschool race, Alister Morris finished 1st in the P1 and P2 race and Isla Shearman finished 3rd in the P3 and P4 race. Well done to all of these children! Special mention to Ailsa Symonds who came fourth and battled it out right to the end with Isla. They were both so close at the end. Thank you to everyone who came along to represent our school.
Glasgow Clan Ice Hockey
On 13th April we had a brilliant night thanks to the Glasgow Clan. They gave us 135 tickets to watch the game against the Sheffield Steelers. All the children had a brilliant time and cheered loudly. It obviously did the trick as the home team won the game 2-0 and helped them to secure a play off spot. Tasha said "I want to go back every week and I loved shouting Let's go Glasgow at the top of my voice with my friends." Jack said he loved singing O Flower of Scotland and Annie liked getting her picture taken with Clangus the mascot.

Brain Tumour Charity Fundraiser
Lewis Reynolds organised a charity fundraiser day on 25th March to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity. "I wanted to arrange a fundraiser because my sister’s friend, Rhudi Baume- Kennedy, who used to come to Strathblane Primary contracted a brain tumour not long after he left the school. Thankfully, after treatment, Rhudi made a good recovery and is now doing well at university. Rhudi is now a young ambassador for The Brain Tumour Charity. Due to the pandemic Rhudi has not been able to do a lot of fundraising and that is why I would like to help him." Children brought in money and were able to participate in either the obstacle course or a football game which was organised by Lewis and the Sports leaders. Thank you to Neil Thompson from Active Stirling for helping to run the event. It was a great day and we will let you know our total next week.
Strathblane Primary School has been on the current site since the mid sixties. The building is set in beautiful countryside with easy access to the natural world for environmental studies projects. Pupils enjoy spacious accommodation with classrooms, general purpose room, and hall with stage and P.E. facilities, separate dining area and a computer suite. Outdoors there are generous playing areas, both hard and grassed. The Parent Council and local businesses have been very supportive in helping to raise funds to improve the school grounds. Parents, friends and the school’s pupil leadership groups have planted trees, shrubs, bulbs and other plants to enhance the environment. Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard and at least two PCs available for the curricular use.
More information is available in our handbook.
Thank you so much to all those who contributed towards our fairy garden project. The response has been phenomenal. We look forward to adding all the elements to Chelsea's memorial garden. She loved fairys and flowers. If you would still like to donate there are just a couple of items remaining which are needed for finishing off our garden project. https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/25WJRZXEIDCM1?ref_=wl_share Please let Rachel (email@example.com) know if you have bought something so that we can thank you and keep track of the purchases.
