There will also be achievement badges for those boys and girls chosen to represent their classes at the Burns Assembly to recite their Scots poems.
Throughout the school session, several skipping badges which challenge our boys and girls at different levels of difficulty, are available to aim for. Our skip leaders are always ready to test those who have practised for their badges.

P6W boys and girls will be challenging themselves to locate countries on the map of Europe.
P7K – We like to push our P7s to do their very best to fill their ribbons during their last year with us, so at times are given extra challenges. They have been challenged to be able to name more than half of the States of the USA, with the added challenge of a gold star as well if they can name all 50. Ten P7s have already risen to this challenge and can name all 50! They now have the incentive of being able to locate states on an interactive map. Can they locate more than 40? Gold star again for the lot – a few are now on to this challenge as well!
Whole School Badges
For our new P1s, they can aim for their first skip badge – 10 skips without tripping. For others, to build up stamina, it’s a skip badge for 10 x their class stage i.e. 20 for P2s, 30 for P3s, etc.
For those with plenty stamina, can they skip 100 times without tripping for their ‘100’ badge?
Team skippers will be challenged as well with long rope skipping. Can they form a team where four individuals can each skip in, skip 5, skip out without tripping?
Knowing Everyone in School
Can boys and girls name every boy and girl in their house group from the photo wall for a ‘shield’ badge? Can they name all of our pupils for a ‘triple shield’ badge?
The winning house team from technology challenges will each recive a ‘winner’ badge for their ribbon.
