This Week’s Assemblies

At the start of a new calendar year the children have been thinking about new year resolutions. Please ask your child about their resolution and help them to keep it throughout the year. We have also been reminding the children about good manners.


At the start of a new calendar year the children have been thinking about new year resolutions. Please ask your child about their resolution and help them to keep it throughout the year.

We have also been reminding the children about good manners. At Balgowan we expect children to do the following:

  • to say good morning/afternoon if you are walking past an adult/child that you know
  • to ask if they want to borrow something, not just take it!
  • waiting your turn before you speak
  • saying ‘excuse me,’ rather than pushing past someone
  • holding the door open for the person coming in, especially if s/he is carrying something
  • being polite when eating
  • saying please and thank you

Good manners cost nothing and help our school to run smoothly.
