Children have opportunities to participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities which take place throughout the session.
Through consulting with pupils and parents we were able to identify clubs and activities that children, and parents, would like to attend. Gordon Primary staff work in partnership with; Active Schools; parents and other partners to enable these wishes to come true.
Preschool, afterschool or lunchtime clubs meet on a weekly basis at various times during the school year and are extremely popular with pupils. We are very grateful to the staff and volunteers who run these clubs.
The assistance of parents in extra-curricular activities is always welcome and any parent who is able to use his or her talents or interests in this way will receive full support of the school (subject to PVG approval- forms can be obtained from school office).
A wide variety of educational visits take place throughout the session to support and enhance learning and teaching. Such excursions are usually linked to studies in class. Parents are welcome to participate in school excursions.
Senior pupils attend a residential in P7 where they participate in a wide variety of activities, incorporating aspects of Environmental Studies, sporting and problem-solving activities, as well as contributing fully to the school’s programme in Personal and Social Development.
From 2015-2016 session onwards, this residential will take place near the start of the P7 session and will be organised along with some other schools that feed into Earlston High School. This will provide pupils with an opportunity to build relationships with children from other schools prior to starting the High School..
Procedures to ensure the Health & Safety of everyone participating in the above activities are strictly adhered to.
