It’s been a busy week for Mount Florida Primary School and scattercraft. Since installing the fabulous bottle top project with Rags to Riches in the school last week the sun has come out and it looks amazing but we haven’t been resting on our laurels!

Parents, staff and children headed off out to lunch on Wednesday for the Education Scotland Awards and although we didn’t win we were immensely proud to be national finalists in the ‘Parents as Partners in Learning’ category with some other excellent parents.

Thursday proved to be more fruitful as we came away as WINNERS in School Category for The Evening Times Streets Ahead awards and made the front page of the newspaper yesterday. Everybody was really excited by that and one key factor in us winning was the amazing work done around the Commonwealth Games and beyond through craft so thank you everyone for being involved !!!!

Not content with award ceremonies scattercraft got involved with the GSA Degree Shows and worked with the art school to install knitting from the craft bomb last year on the scaffolding currently covering the Reid Building. Well done Crissie who made that happen and also another wee outing for all the fab work that happened last year.

So all that remains now this week is to send in the final report for the Celebrate It grant that we received to cover all of the amazing work we did last year. We are incredibly grateful for that grant and what it allowed us to achieve in the school and local community for the Commonwealth Games 2014 – thank you Big Lottery Fund and Celebrate It!!!!!
