Building Resilience

This term we have all been looking at Building Resilience. We have been recognising that there will be times in our lives when we face challenges or disappointments, and focusing on how we can cope with these obstacles and often use them to inspire us. Some of our posters about individuals who have shown resilience – some of them famous people, some of them people in our lives – are on show in the corridor as part of our Building Resilience display. Have a look at some of them below:

Gylemuir Gathering – September 2017

On Thursday morning the first Gylemuir Gathering event of this session took place. The Gathering gives pupils the chance to cooperate in house groups with children from different classes, working together to build skills while focusing on a specific theme (eg. Safe on our StreetsCommunity ChampionsHealthy EatingGlobal Citizenship).

There were a host of fascinating, fun, challenging activities going on around the school. Pictures from all the activities will appear on the big screen at reception over the next couple of weeks, but in the meantime here is what the Eco Group achieved – some fantastic transient artworks made from natural and found objects, with each piece of art relating to one of our school values: Welcoming, Creative, Supportive and Happy.

For our Primary 7 children of course, it is time to move on to high school and many of the 7s are having transition days this week.

At the other end of the school we’re looking forward to welcoming our new Primary 1s, and you can view our Nursery to P1 slideshow by clicking below.
