"Altogether every day, partnership in every way"

Welcome

Sticky

At St. Clare’s it is our fervent hope that parents will enter into a partnership with the school to provide for its pupils a happy, safe and secure educational environment instilling into the children a pride in their school and locality. Your child will cope best when he/she knows that we are all working together, presenting the same standards and expectations for his/her education and future. We are always pleased to welcome parents and to encourage your involvement in the school.

I hope that this website will help to inform you about St Clare’s School, and I look forward to developing a partnership with you and ask you to support our school aims and policies for the education of your child.

In partnership with Glasgow City Council, we aim to

  1. Create a learning environment in which our children feel happy, secure and eager to learn. Through our inclusive Catholic ethos, we will ensure the formation of children who always give their best for God, for themselves, for their families and for other people

  2. Raise the attainment of all children across the curriculum, setting challenging but acheivable targets for each child within a school ethos of excellence

  3. Work Flexibly and creatively to ensure access to the curiculum for all children.

  4. Develop each child’s spiritual, moral, physical and emotional maturity in partnership with parents.

All staff, ancillary and teaching, are fully committed to their pastoral role in ensuring that every child feels happy, valued and successful within the school. We at St Clare’s endeavour to develop in our children not only a love of their faith and of learning, but also a desire to reach beyond the confines of the school, to take their place in the community and in the world at large.

I know we can count on your support

Commonwealth Classroom

Primary 7 have been given an opportunity to take part in a Commonwealth Classroom Project and we can’t wait!
We have made a video clip with lots of mini clips in it about school. We have put a clip about school uniforms, clubs and homework, travelling to school, lunch, subjects, structure of the school day and assemblies!
There are many teams and our class is in team 15. In the school hall we have put pins in where the Queen’s Baton has been in the Commonwealth countries.
We have a competition to draw and colour a sport in the commonwealth games and the winner will get a prize so good luck to all!

Money Week

This week, St Clare’s have been learning about money since it’s Money Week. On our first assembly about Money Week, Mr Young directed a small sketch about money. Sarah Jane Mcmillan, Monica Gulmayo, Mark Dooley and Aaron Richardson (From P7/6) were playing parts in it. Monica played Sue, (the money spender), Sarah played Helen (the money saver), Aaron played the narrator and Mark played a bank manager. It taught us a very valuable lesson about saving money. After that, we sang Jessie J’s Price Tag altogether. Twice! Great singing voices St Clare’s! On the next assembly, a man called Russel Dagliesh visited our school to teach us the importance of money. He showed us a short animation made by a woman in the Philippines. Our next assemblies will still be on the topic of money so we will be looking forward to that.

£1 Business Challenge

P7/6 have split up into three mini-companies, each with a start-up loan of £1, trying to make as much profit as they can.

The companies are named: Bazinga, Kaboom! and Target Zone.

The ideas they have had so far include: A Scavenger Hunt, selling lolly stick bookmarks and running a Guess Teddy’s Birthday Competition.

We are all excited to see who will win this Challenge!

Playground Toys

St Clare’s have saved lots of money to get lots of new playground toys.
For the primary 1s and 2s we bought prams and accessories (babies and other things).
For the upper school we got skateboards (with accessories), scooters with helmets and two basketball hoops nailed to the wall!
Everyone loves to play with all the new toys and are extremely happy and want the school to keep saving up money and this might encourage the children to start saving up too!

Financial Education Week 3rd – 7th February 2014

 

Dear Parents & Carers,

As part of our commitment to our children developing skills for life St. Clare’s will be celebrating Financial Education week from Monday 3rd February – Friday 7th February.  During this week each class will be participating in different activities and competitions each day to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of money and how it is used.

During the week we will have input from various professionals regarding their jobs and money management. Michael Young form MBN Recruitment, Russell Dagliesh an Investor and Advisor, Management from Bearsden Bank of Scotland and representatives from Glasgow’s new scheme ‘Starter for t£n’ will deliver relevant money issues to all children within the school.

P3 New Topic

Primary 3 are starting a new topic about dinosaurs. They are going to have so much fun learning about great history and how, why where and when they lived.I think they will have to show us their dinosaur work and tell us some fun facts. They have made fossilised skeletons and will be excavating them. I hope they have a great topic.

P5 Romans

P5 have been learning about the Romans. They have learned about how and why the Romans came to Scotland and the Romans were too strong. They Have been dressing up in Roman costumes and roaming the corridors!

P7/6 New Topic

P7/6′s new topic is about the EU (European Union). The children will be learning about which countries make up the EU, the politics and much more!
The children are going to make a personal project about a country in the European Union.

The Titanic

The P4/5s are doing a new topic THE TITANIC. Two years ago when I was in Mrs Kennedy’s class we made a huge Titanic on the wall. We put such hard work into and i’m sure they will do the same. We also displayed a powerpoint in front of the school. I hope they wiil enjoy it as much as we did.
