Aim High, Let Your Ambitions Fly!

On Friday 18th August we welcomed Primary Four pupils and all new pupils to their first upper school assembly. We also welcomed Miss Jennifer Ferguson and Miss Sophie Mitchell to the Primary Five team and Ms Anisimoviene to the Primary Four team.

This year, we are revisiting our school vision and values so pupils were invited to think about what is most important to us in the Sciennes Family.  We are extremely grateful to parent Emma Kirk (CEO User Vision and Convenor of the Parent Council Communications Group) who recently led an excellent session to help the whole staff revisit and reflect on our vision and values. Pupil Council leaders will soon be elected, one from each class P2-P7, who will then be able to join in on discussions and support the process.

We explored ways to respect everyone’s right to be safe and right to learn at Sciennes. Primary Seven pupils helped explain what ‘The Golden Rule’ means.


Showing respect universally unites us all: in the classroom, in the school and beyond, as global citizens.  Brad Montague’s moving film ‘ Smuggling Hope’ was shown to help us all continue to believe that we can all make a difference by upholding our values.
