As the weather gets warmer (hopefully) and the nights get lighter remember to use our outdoor PE route at Lochrin Basin. Here are some of our P7 pupils with a quick reminder on how to use the QR codes. Keep fit and have fun !
P6 had a great day climbing at the Ratho Climbing Arena as part of their Junior Award Scheme Scotland (JASS). Pupils had the opportunity to go climbing, bouldering and abseiling. Everyone participated well and supported each other, well done !
Please see our class blog for more photographs of P6 in action or click here.
A big Tollcross welcome to our two new Active Schools co-ordinators, Jonathan and Graeme. They will be sending out a questionnaire to all of our families and asking pupils about the types of physical activities they would like to take part in. They have lots of great ideas for getting our pupils more active and we are looking forward to working with them. Please keep an eye out for the questionnaires appearing in school bags !
Dr Alasdair Allan MSP, Minister for Learning, Science & Scotland’s Languages and Shona Robison MSP, Minister for Commonwealth Games & Sport visited Tollcross Primary this morning. During their visit, ministers met our P6/7 pupils and shared the Outdoor PE Route our pupils have created at the Union Canal. We are sure they enjoyed their visit.
This is what the ministers said about the Outdoor PE Project …
“Really impressed with the use of technology in this project. Kids really enjoyed the activities and were “puffed” by the end, which is what I like to see ! Would be good to see this idea shared with schools across Scotland.”
Shona Robison, Sports Minister
“Great to see the school so involved in designing and using something that helps you learn and keep fit at the same time. Sure other schools will want to copy.
Alastair Allan, Schools Minister
