PE – This is a quick reminder that pupils must bring a change of kit for PE which includes a change of shoes. Scottish Social Dance – As all Core PE classes are now taking part in Scottish Social Dance all pupils should be bringing a full PE kit which must include a change of shoes. Pupils should already be doing this for indoor lessons but many pupils seem to be wearing the same shoes to school and to take part in PE. This is a real worry at this time of year with cold and wet weather. Dirty shoes worn outside then indoors bring in mud and grit which is very unpleasant when classes sit on the floor and can cause damage to flooring. Pupils without a change of shoes will need to dance in bare feet if they forget to bring a change.
Thank you for your co-operation.
