Young Scot and My World of Work invite parents and career influencers to join the evening insight session on the 3rd of March at The Vision Building.

Scottish digital leaders such as Skyscanner, Be Positive, Talkholiday, Edge Testing, Abertay Ethical Hacking, and more will be there to unveil the truth behind a digital career. In the evening there will be an exclusive talk from Chris Newlands of Talkholiday who will outline why he chose to pursue a career in app development and what he see’s the future of digital in Scotland looking like. Following this there will be a live demonstration and talk from Skyscanner one of Scotlands biggest global tech companies. There will also be an interactive panel, with other industry perspectives, education specialists and training providers to map out the potential routes into tech that are available. Food and refreshments will be available throughout the evening as you roam through the inspiration area and speak one-on-one with local employers and some of Scotland’s more innovative minds in tech.

Tea’s, coffee’s and canapés will be available all night and the event will finish up around 8pm, but you can drop in for as long or as short as you want.

Christmas Services

Friday 18th December - this is a really popular event and is well attended. To help with seating and for health and safety reasons, we ask parents/carers to attend specific performances - 9.30am for parents/carers of P1a, P1/2, P3, P4, P5/6, P7a and 11.00am for parents/carers of P1b, P2, P3/4, P5, P6 and P7b (apologies as this has changed from the information in the last newsletter). Obviously if you have two or more children in the school, you can choose which performance to attend. The two performances are exactly the same.

Christmas School Dinner

This takes place on Friday 18th December.

Craigiebarns Christmas Cheer

This is being held during the afternoon of Friday 18th December - a fun event when the whole school gets together to sing favourite Christmas songs.

Christmas Jumper Day

On Monday 21st December we are going to have some festive fun while raising money for three amazing charities. Children are allowed to come to school wearing a Christmas Jumper over their normal school uniform for a donation of £1 or more – adults can take part too! If your child does not have a Christmas jumper, you could tinsel up an ordinary school jumper/cardigan or wear something Christmassy like a Christmas hat. Thank you in anticipation of your support.

Movie afternoon

Tuesday 22nd December - this is a fun event for all children. Please give your child a small ‘treat’ and drink to enjoy during the film – no rustling wrappers please!

Christmas Holidays

School closes for the Christmas holidays on Wednesday 23rd December at 12 noon and reopens on Thursday 7th January 2015.

Work in the school grounds January to March

As part of phase 1 of our new heating system, a boiler house is being installed in the New Year. As a result, the current staff car park will be significantly reduced to make room for facilities, equipment and resources required for the work and workers. To create alternative parking for staff, the yellow barrier will be opened and a temporary fence built near to where the P1a and P1/2 classes line up. It will be even more important than ever that parents/carers/private taxis do not use the carpark to drop off and collect children – it will be an extra busy place due to reduced space and additional deliveries being made for the building work

Funfit Tayside groups invite to families

If you don`t already know me, I am the Tayside Project Manager of a Social Enterprise which works in partnership with the NHS Tayside, specifically POST (Paediatric Overweight Service Tayside) to provide free family groups for prevention and treatment of children who are at risk of, or who are over a healthy weight. The groups are accessible, free and fun where we learn through games and work with families to ensure we get solutions to fit them as a family.
