1. If you are being bullied in school or anywhere else you should do your best you can to not believe anything they say.

2.You MUST tell someone you trust like a Family member , teacher, friend and the NSPCC if it is more serious (NSPCC`S number is 0800 1111 ChildLine.)

3.Stand up for yourself or your friend, that is something very brave to do.

4.They are who they are, but you are amazing remember that and never fight back.

Queensferry Post – Eco committee

Hello, I’m Olivia and I’m going to tell you about the thing that the Eco committee were working on no plastic snacks they called it Fruity Friday. The aim was to use less plastic to save our planet from dying and it was a great idea everybody loved it because they got lots of house points every time they brought a no plastic snack. In some classes they have a board, and everybody has their name on it and every time they take in a no plastic snack they get a tick beside their name and around 2 house points.

Queensferry Post -Benmore


The week before the October holidays the p7s went to Benmore. We did lots of fun activities such as gorge walking, caving, orienteering and lots more. It took around two and a half hours to get there with a stop off at Luss for lunch. When we got their we had a biscuit and juice and found out what activity groups we were in and then we went to make our beds which was interesting. After that we got our waterproofs on and went to PUDDLE LANE which was amazing. Now I’ll tell you about the activities we did. First biking, biking was really fun first we went to the bike shed and got fitted for bikes, helmets and gloves then we cycled around and got very wet which was fun. Next I’ll tell you about high ropes, high ropes was really fun. Now gorge walking, gorge walking was really fun we went up the gorge and then there was some slides to slide down. Next caving , caving was really fun we had to climb really high in the forest to get to the caves and then we sat in a cave and found gold dust.

Queensferry Post – Pollution Posters

Hi, my name is Annabelle Lynch and I would like to tell you about my pollution poster. I designed it in Primary 5 as part of the competition that Mr. Brownlie held. Now it is up on our school fence for people to notice that our playground is being polluted. We all really need to start realising that we should stop and think about our world. There were two winners – me and Emma Thompson. You can see my poster outside our school!
