Get ‘Reddy’ for Red Nose Day!

On Friday 10th March we shared plans for Red Nose Day on Friday 24th March. P7s will begin selling red noses next week at £1 each and pupils will be asked to ‘Stand Up for Comic Relief’ by taking the mic and saying something funny as part of our whole school Comedy Festival.

Our P7 Comedy Book “BaDUMtsh” is currently being printed, professionally formatted and published by Sciennes’ parent Mary Turner Thomson through her Whitewater Publishing Company and we will hold an official Book Launch during Assembly next week. We are delighted that much loved comedian Patrick Monahan so kindly sent a foreword for the children’s book. Pre-ordered books can be collected on the day and copies can be purchased for £5 each from that day with profits to Comic Relief.

Another celebrated Sciennes’ parent, Richard Melvin, has generously offered to provide comedy workshops for P6 pupils as part of our Comedy Festival.

As Fairtrade Fortnight draws to a close, Mr Hutchison and Sciennes’ Pupil ECO Group led a very successful Fairtrade Craft and Tuckshop for P1-P7 from 10am-10.45am and after school. Thank you very much to all who supported.

We showed a video about Fairtrade cotton and P6 pupils Louis and Henry are planning a football match to continue to raise awareness of the Fairtrade Foundation and its aims.

We sang “Put a Little Love in Your Heart” and encouraged everyone to keep being kind. There has been some rough play with our loose play materials recently so pupils were encouraged to take greater care of playground equipment.

Caitlin from the ECO Group encouraged everyone to keep using the Travel Tracker and reminded P4B that they are on Litter Picking Duty next week.

Our House Captains did a fabulous job of presenting news and recent pupil achievements and we sang the new Comic Relief song, “Put a Nose on It!”
