Big Me Day- Chalk Talk by Iona Matson (P7)

Big Me Day
In Kirkhill this week the children have been taking part in Big Me day. The children donated £1 and were allowed to come to school dressed as what they want to be when they grow up. The school raised £160 for ActionAid which will go towards supporting some of the world’s poorest children. The money will help the children get a better education and hopefully a future career.
The best costumes were picked out for a picture that will be shown on the office TV.
The majority of the children came dressed up as footballers, doctors, policemen, builders, vets, gymnasts, dancers, singers and YouTubers.

Carly McIntosh in P7 said “I enjoyed dressing up as a dancer and I liked that it was for a good cause.”
It sounds like everyone had a great day for a great cause. Well done!

Healthy Breakfast – Chalk Talk by Carly McIntosh (P7)

Healthy Breakfast

In September 2016 P4-P7 had a healthy breakfast. The breakfast was to encourage kids to eat healthier and let them try some new foods.
We had some great results! 92 children said they liked the breakfast and 2 children said that they didn’t. 26 people liked toast the best,20 people liked bagels the best and 14 people liked watermelon the best. Grapefruit, Fruit juice and cornflakes were liked the least. All together 96 children attended the healthy breakfast. Iona Matson in p7 said “My favourite fruit at the healthy breakfast was pineapple and strawberries. My least favourite food was melon.”
Mostly at home children have toast (29) cereal (19) and fruit (13) for breakfast. 24 children said that they don’t have breakfast at home.
Teri in P7 said “It’s a great idea! I only wish we could do it more often.”
