World Book Day

We will celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 7th March. This year, we are asking children to bring in to school their favourite book, we will also have a range of literacy and book related activities throughout the day, including accessing Authors Live Events and our LPS River of Reading.

All pupils will be issued with their £1 World Book Day Token.

Red Nose Day

On Friday 15th March, people across the UK will be coming together to do things ‘big and small’ to raise money for Red Nose Day. For our part, we have been selling Red Noses through our ParentPay system and we will also be having a Dress Down Day on Friday 15th March (no football colours please). We ask that children bring a donation on this day.

Fairtrade at LPS

Our Fairtrade Leadership Team recently took part in an assembly to share the importance of buying Fairtrade products whenever possible. The team, with help from Mrs Callan and Mrs Nicholas have organised and are running a Fairtrade Tuckshop in school.

As you know, this work has led Lanark Primary School and ELC to successfully gain our Fair Active School Award- well done to everyone involved!

P7 Rotary Quiz

P7 children took part in the Rotary Quiz on 21st February in Robert Owen Memorial Primary. All the children represented the school extremely well and were a real credit to us. Congratulations to Logan, Mark, Lauren, Ruby, Erin, Aleesha, Murray, Sophie, Sara and Aiden- you were all fantastic!


Wellbeing Indicator of the Month- Responsible

Every month we introduce/reinforce one of the areas which helps our children explore their wellbeing and how this can be improved or supported. This month’s focus is on being RESPONSIBLE. This means having opportunities and encouragement to play active and responsible roles at home, in school and in the community. It also means that where necessary, having appropriate guidance and supervision, and being involved in decisions that affect them.
