Vote for Lanark Primary In Tesco Stores

Lanark Primary Parent Council are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for a Tesco Bags of Help Award to support a new Forest School Programme called Learning Together, Growing Together. You will be able to vote for Lanark Primary in Lanark Tesco during May and June. 

Learning Together, Growing Together will work with pupils who have been identified as needing support to develop confidence, self-esteem and outdoor skills.

Here’s what happens next…

This project along with two other successful projects will go forward to a vote in Tesco stores where customers can vote for their favourite project each time they shop. Voting will take place from Wednesday 1st May 2019 to Sunday 30th June 2019. You vote by placing a token in the project box of your choice.  The project with the highest number of votes will receive £4,000, the second placed project £2,000 and the third placed project £1,000. 

The more funding we get, the more children we can support, so we’ve costed the project to £4000. We need as many people as possible to vote for Lanark Primary so get your tokens ready and please share this post with as many people as you can.


P1 Transitions

This term sees transition work taking place in readiness for our pre-schoolers moving on to P1. There will be a number of visits for the children and a chance for parents to meet some of our teachers.  The visits take place in May and June and parents/carers should have already received their transition letters with additional information included. Please contact the school if you haven’t received the letter.

The dates are as follows:

  • 13th May 9.30-10.30am and 1-2pm
  • 22nd May 9.30-10.30am and 1-2pm
  • 4th June 9.30-10.30am and 1-2pm

There will also be an opportunity for parents/carers to enjoy a lunch with the pupils on Thursday 13th June after a short information session at 11am.

Youth at Heart Club

Following on from the success of P6’s visits to McClymont House, each class, with the support of Mrs Mulvey and Room 7 will again be hosting a community club for our elderly residents this year. I’m sure you’ll agree this will support our work in the community and will be very well received. Please let anyone you think would benefit from coming along know! The first session will be on Tuesday 30th April 1.45-2.45pm.


Additional In-Service Day

You should have already received a letter informing you that the school will be closed to pupils on Thursday 23rd May as we will be used as a Polling Station.

Celebrating Success

The school will open its doors at 2pm (11am for morning ELC session) on Friday 24th May to allow you to visit your child’s class and see some of the work they have been doing over the term. I do hope you can make it!
