Kapalamula Primary have now got their chicks. They have 40 little chicks and the food that they need for them. They are very cute!




Winners of RHET Haggis Competition
We recently entered a competition with the Royal Highland Education Trust where we have to come up with our own design of haggis. We were to put a twist to our haggis, so we decided to do our haggis with an Indian twist. We were invited to a final on Monday the 25th of January where we sent our recipe to Forth Valley Collage and they made our haggis and the judges tasted it and decided that we won the competition. We were also given an award for best recipe idea. We were given a shield for winning!


Gymnastics competition
On the 26th of January, 8 pupils (Caitlin, Charlotte, Kirsty, Camryn, Isla, Kirsty R, Myrn and Gavin) from the school went to a Gymnastics Competition. At the competition, they had to do the vault and a floor routine. Their routines had six gymnastic moves in them. Kirsty Fotheringham received silver.

Primary 5 swimming
On the 25th of January, P5 started their swimming at the Peak in Stirling. They are going two afternoons a week for the rest of the term.

Nativity
On the 16th on December, the whole school did a performance called the McTivity, a Nativity in Scots. There were 8 narrators, 4 kings, 4 Innkeepers, 1 Angel, 1 Guard and Mary and Joseph. We learnt lots of new songs. We all enjoyed ourselves and we hope you did too.
 
 

Recipe Book
In November 2015 our school decided to make a recipe book for our Christmas enterprise project. Everyone in school brought their own family recipe to put in the cooking book and we asked for recipes from the community. We used a company called The Cookbook Initiative and it was all done on the internet.  It was such a success that we sold out of the recipe books very quickly. We hope everyone enjoys trying some new
recipes!
 

Cross Country Event

 

Recently the P5-7 went to an Active Stirling event in Aberfoyle. Everyone did really well and finished in a good time. P6-7 are looking forward to the regional cross country event in February.


Swimming Competition
