Following an assessment of the adverse weather conditions today and the Amber weather warning for snow between 9pm tonight and 5am in areas of South Lanarkshire as well as the road conditions, a decision has been taken, in the interests of the safety of children and staff, to close all schools in the Clydesdale area. Therefore our school will be closed tomorrow, Thur 18th Jan.
On Wednesday 22nd November, the Dance Club from Underbank Primary participated in the Clydesdale Dance Festival. They danced to Ed Sheeran “Shape of you” remix. They performed a fabulous routine. They all loved participating and can’t wait until next year’s event!.
P7 Lanark Grammar Spelling Bee
On Thursday, Primary 7 went to Lanark Grammar to take part in the Spelling Bee transition event for all P7 pupils within the Lanark Learning Community. Hannah, Corey, Thomas and Jonathan were put forward to represent the school. There were two heats and twelve schools participating. Heat one was the quick fire round, to see how many words they could spell correctly in two minutes. Heat two was the spelling playoff, where all team members took turns to spell the words. They got into the final against St Mary’s Primary, Robert Owen Memorial and Lanark Primary and THEY WON with 28 points! Robert Owen came in second with 22 points. They couldn’t wait to get back to school to show everyone the shield they won.
Fabulous result for Team Underbank! Scotland’s Finest Woods Award 2017. All in our school community are delighted with this achievement.
Congratulations to our football team who brought the Popinjay Cup back to Underbank Primary once again. Well done boys and girls, what a result!
