Extra-Curricular Physical Activity Clubs

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have an absolute abundance of physical activity clubs on offer at Bankhead. I have attached a timetable so you can see the dates and times they are available. There is a mixture of teacher led, P7 Sidekick led and Coach led clubs. 

Some of the clubs have not been allocated spaces yet as they do not start for a few weeks, there will be letters in due course to children who would like to attend these clubs.

You will see that some stages have more clubs on offer, this is due to these children attending sporting festivals on offer at their age group representing the school.

We are very proud of our P7 sidekicks and now P6 leaders wanting to lead sport and physical activity!

If you have any questions regarding the clubs, please do not hesitate to contact.

Kind regards,

Miss Boyd
Depute Head Teacher

Homework Workshop

A reminder that we have a homework workshop running this afternoon here in our Community Wing. Alison Marden, our YFCL Officer will be supporting parents in accessing Google Classroom, looking at ways to upload work or complete tasks online. If you would like some help in this area, please join us this afternoon or next Monday afternoon (6th February) at 1.30 - 3.00pm.


Head Lice

Head lice / nits can be a problem for many children. They are notoriously difficult to get rid of and can spread from child to child readily if the chidren's heads are in close contact. 
It is important that parents / carers check children's hair regularly and take the appropriate action if they find any evidence of head lice / nits.
The link below from NHS Inform gives information on how to spot them and what to do to avoid your child getting them, and what to do if they have them.
Please have a look as we are aware that some children in the school currently have them. 


SUMDOG Challenge!!
