Welcome Back

Welcome back everyone - safe and well. I hope you all had an enjoyable and restful holiday. Unfortunately the weather in Britain was not at its best for much of the holiday.

We welcome 3 new teachers this year: Mr Gallagher in P6, Miss Cohen in P5 and Miss Connelly in P2b.

We were very priviliged to have been invited to sing for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth on Wednesday 4th July, in George Square, during her Jubilee visit to Glasgow. The pupils singing and those playing instruments were outstanding. The huge cheers and applause were testament to how good they were.

Laura Orlowska, one of our P4 pupils was chosen to present the Queen with a posie. She carried out her duty impeccably and if she was feeling nervous, it certainly didn't show. Queen Elizabeth thanked her and said that the posie matched her outfit. Well done Laura. This is a wonderful memory for you to cherish forever. You will find some photos of her presenting the posie in the Gallery section.

If any parents have photos of the event, if they would either email them into school or hand them in on a memory stick, which I will return to them, I will add them to the Gallery.

A truly proud day for St Paul's.

St Paul's Primary would like to congratulate all the Olympians who took part in the wonderful 2012 Games. Congratulations to all the medalists, especially those from Great Britian and more especially our wonderful Scottish medalists. They did us proud. Who knows, maybe we will see some ex St Paul's pupils competing at future games.

We welcome our new P1 pupils. They all arrived this morning with their parents, brothers, sisters, grannies, grandpas, aunties, uncles and various other friends and relatives. It was a full house and a very happy atmosphere. There were a few tears, but that was only from the parents. Everyone looked amazing in their school uniforms.

Well done also to all the other pupils who come to school every day in full school uniform. You all look so good and proud to be a member of St Paul's.

We went to Mass this morning for the feast of the Assumption. As always, the behaviour in church was excellent. Various members of the congregation spoke to Mr Hardie and Mrs McSween at the end of Mass, to comment on how well the children had behaved. Congratulations to the pupils and their teachers. Keep it up.
