P6 special visitor

Last week we had a special guest in our class – Mrs Eckersley. She taught us about British Airways. We learned about the cabin crew and about pilots. The cabin crew get free mosquitoes protection and if they spray it on their tights it actually melts there tights cause that’s how strong it is. We also learned that if you are a member of cabin crew you will get 2 free travels each year. There are few people that die or get really sick on the plain here – some people get heart attacks, strokes, asthma attacks, allergic reactions, diabetes and lots of other reasons.

At the wing of the plane there are bunkbeds for the cabin crew when they rest.  Some pregnant people give birth on the plane, this is not that common because the latest they can board a plane is at 37 weeks pregnant. Sometimes there are 4 pilots and there usually hard to keep them amused.

We got water and popcorn because people get a snack while they are travelling.  We were learning about people travelling in the plane and the skills you need to have to apply for the job. Mrs Eckersley told us about the countries she has visited – the best one for her is Bermuda. She was also showing all the money from their country.

Infant Ceilidh

The St. Andrew’s Day ceilidh was a great success with all the Infant classes performing a dance. Thanks to Rhona and Lachlan for a lovely display of Highland Dancing. Mr. McMillan kindly came along and played a few tunes on the bag pipes and we enjoyed a wee treat of some Scottish Shortbread.

Primary 7

Primary 7s have been busy applying for jobs as part of our Enterprise project. They each completed a job application and attended an interview. I was most impressed with how they conducted themselves.

Our departments are:

  • Leadership
  • Finance
  • Advertising/Marketing
  • Research
  • Production

Today we had some team challenges to get to know our teams and find out how well we work together. There were also department meetings held to discuss and create clear action plans to ensure our enterprise is a success. What an amazing start!
