Parent/Carer Newsletter Spring 2018 Heedies Hello! by Mr Anderson (HT) Welcome to the Spring edition of the Bellahouston Academy Newsletter. As ever, things have been extremely busy and I hope that this Newsletter gives you a flavour of whats been happening. Were in the runup to exams and everyone is working flat-out to make sure that our young people are as well prepared as they possibly can be, especially with the enforced 3-day layoff brought about by the snow closure. We held a Study Skills Evening on 12th March and there will be a programme of Spring Break Revision classes running throughout the holiday. Id urge parents/carers to make sure that their daughter/son attends as many of these sessions as possible they really can make a difference. In this issue Inside, youll read, amongst other things, about our two-day Rowathon, which showed what Bella is all about. The spirit in the Assembly Hall over the two days was fantastic, with pupils encouraging their fellowrowers to post the best distance they possibly could in pursuit of House points. Staying on a sporting theme, Im delighted to be able to announce at long last that our red ash pitch will soon be a thing of the past, being replaced by a highquality artificial surface. Id also like to thank the Parents Council for their assistance over the last few months with our efforts to get this upgrade over the line. Finally, Bellahouston Academy will be hosting a Scottish Government Conference on Adverse Childhood Experiences

from 10.30 12.30 on Monday 26th March. This will be Chaired School website : www.bellahoustonacademy.glasgow.sch.uk Rowathon Sport and Health council A special guest visits Bellahouston Academy Pitch Proposal Success and impact of Parent Council Success Stories Easter School by the Deputy First Minister and will also be attended by many of the Scottish Cabinet as well as other well-known figures from Scottish civic life.

Ian Anderson Twitter: @BellahoustonAc Sport and Health Council It has been such a busy term for the Sport and Health by Chloe Marshall, S&H Captain Council. On the run up to the Christmas period we planned and organised a House Challenge called the Jingle Jog. This was a huge success and we raised 500 for our charity, Save the Children. We had the bug and asked Miss Dickman if we could organise another event this term. We chose to celebrate the upcoming Glasgow European

Championships 2018 and decided a House Rowathon would be a good challenge. We invited Bonnie the Seal as our special guest and Bonnie opened our event! We would like to say a big thank you to all the staff, pupils and our local primary pupils from Lorne Street and St Alberts who signed up for the challenge and came to celebrate with us! You were fantastic. Our 3rd and final piece of news for the newsletter is very exciting! We found out this week, after years of preparation, campaigning with our Parent Council supporting us that Bellahouston Academy is finally getting a new synthetic pitch, replacing the old, often waterlogged or flooded blaes pitch. This is a huge step forward for PE and after school clubs at the school. Building work begins on March 26th and it will be ready for us to use in August

after the summer holidays! Celebrating success A HUGE congratulations to Madame Albarracin, her Modern Languages team and our 4 Bella superstars who scooped a number of awards at the Glasgow Language Awards hosted in the stunning City Chambers.
