Ask God to enlighten our minds, so that Christ will shine through us in all that we do, and bless us with the knowledge and strength to overcome any challenges that come our way.
St Mungo, pray for us.

St Mungo’s Talent Contest 2020
The St Mungo’s talent contest is taking place this year, albeit it a different way than usual.
This year because of the circumstances, we cannot unfortunately have gatherings in the assembly hall. But never fear, we are still planning to have a show!
So how are we going to do this?
We are planning to have a virtual talent contest instead of a live act show. A video of successful applicants will be shown across the school during P6 of Friday the 18th of December and pupils will have the chance to vote for your favourite on twitter!
So how do I apply to take part?
If you are interested in taking part please come and see Mr Young in S32/S06 or speak to one of the leadership team

COVID-19 Symptoms At Home & In School
If an adult is isolating because they are a close contact of a positive case with symptoms then we would like not to risk the children coming in to school. Therefore those children should remain at home for the 14 day period of isolation in line with their parent and carer.
If a child or an adult has tested positive and has recovered (at least 10 days) and is due to return to school, however subsequently another member of the house hold tests positive, the original individual cannot return to school until the subsequent member/s of the household have recovered and are able to ease their self-isolation. This is to ensure the ongoing safety of all of our staff and pupils.

Positive Parenting Program
The three Ps in ‘Triple P’ stand for ‘Positive Parenting Program’ Triple P helps you understand how your family works so you can use the things you already think, feel, say and do in new ways.
There is no hard-and-fast rule book for raising children but it’s surprising how many familiar parenting problems have very simple solutions.
From infants’ sleeping difficulties to toddler tantrums; fighting at school to a teenager’s defiance; even the struggle to set up healthy eating patterns or a regular homework routine — the issues you face aren’t peculiar to your family. In fact, they’re commonplace. That’s why Triple P can help. Triple P is one of the few parenting programs in the world that’s based on evidence from clinical research. For more than 30 years, Triple P’s easy-to understand and practical strategies have been shown to help families in all types of situations.
Parents can choose from tip sheets, books, DVDs, seminars, courses or one-on-one sessions to arm themselves with the tools that can make parenting a little less ‘trial and error’.
And because Triple P works in the majority of cases, Triple P has the seal of approval of parents, practitioners and experts internationally.
We look forward to helping you.
