Thank you to all our partners from Nationwide Bank, Kilbryde Hospice and Bank of Scotland who visited all our classes this week to deliver workshops on financial matters. Our theme of recycling and re-using to save money was a great success and the children really have learned a lot this week. Many of our families have benefited from the swap shop held in the school on Thursday while at the same time supporting our Mary's Meals work. The children had a ball bringing in old clothes and upcycling them to make new items which were showcased at our fashion show on Friday. It really does show what you can do to save yourself money and the wonderful results that can be achieved when you work together on something.
JRSOs and their helpers
We are delighted that our Junior Road Safety Officers have reached the judging stages of the Community Education Awards. As part of their work this year they have encouraged our senior pupils to support parents and children in the car park to ensure the safest possible route into the school. On Tuesday and Wednesday morning they will have their clip boards out with them and we would love for you to make any comments you have about the service the children are providing so that we can show the positive impact it has had for our families.

St Louise Road Safety Parking Pilot
As of Wednesday 9th May, we will be trialling extra parking measures at the end of the school day on the ramp that leads up to the large double gate at the top of Whitehills Terrace.
From 2.40pm the large double gates will be opened and we would ask that you drive down and park behind the smaller closed gate one behind the other on the road. At this point you should turn your engines off and will be able to walk round to the front of the school to collect your child(ren). The smaller gate will remain closed until all children and parents have vacated the school grounds and will be opened after the main car park has emptied. (added 4.5.18)

St Vincent De Paul Parish - 40 Year Anniversary - Mission
Over the next two weeks, St Vincent's Parish will embark on a two week mission. The mission will be in St Louise Primary on Monday and Tuesday and then St Vincent's Primary on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. This is an opportunity for home, parish and school to celebrate together and members of the mission will be offering tea and coffee and a chance to chat with them on Monday at the end of the school day and Tuesday morning when you are dropping your children off. If you can spare a few minutes please stop and chat with them. (added 11.03.18)
Police have re-evaluated the situation on Whitehills Terrace and cars will be able to park on the road-side nearest to the schools but will be unable to park on the opposite side of the road. (added 08.03.18)
Please note that due to the congestion on Whitehills Terrace at the end of the school day and to ensure ALL pupils are safe, there will be a Police Controlled Traffic Management System in place from Thursday 8th March until the end of the road works, where no cars will be able to park on this road. Advice would be to park at an alternative location and walk to the school grounds. Thank you for your support and co-operation with this. (added 07.03.18)
