The tournament was held at Strikers indoor arena in Bridge of Don with many local schools taking part.

Kingswells Business Man Helps Energise Local School.
Whilst a great deal of progress is now being made in alternative energy systems, it is the next generation that will design and engineer these solutions into the future and it is essential that they have the opportunity now to learn about these sustainable technologies.

Thanks to the hydrogen-based technologies specialist siGEN, pupils at Kingswells Primary have now been given an excellent opportunity to discover the world of renewable and sustainable energies. The School received a "power house" kit containing everything needed to demonstrate and explain the exciting and innovative world of energy efficiency and alternative energy systems.

A resident of Kingswells and Managing Director of siGEN Dave McGrath is very keen to encourage schools to teach sustainability and, as a sideline to the company's core business of evaluating commercial fuel cell systems, he is now importing the educational kits for the young. The Alternative Energy Kits are both fun and educational and would make an ideal Christmas gift. They are also available at a discount schools.

More details can be found on the siGEN web site at www.sigen.co.uk or alternatively contact Dave McGrath via email on dmg@sigen.co.uk


"Kingswells P3 Win Westhill Gala"
Kingswells Primary 3 football team triumphed 3-1 over Hazelhead in the final of the Westhill Gala 7-a-side tournament on Saturday 7th June. The game was played in front of a large crowd of anxious parents and friends in blazing sunshine as part of the final day of this year's Gala. The tournament is held every year with over 50 teams entered at various age groups from P2 to P7. The P3s had to go through qualifying rounds over two weekends in May before playing the final. This is the first time any Kingswells team has won a Westhill Gala final and it is hoped that it is the first of many successes. " By Gordon.McCaw. (Posted 26.6.2003)

KINGSWELLS PRIMARY: Aiming to add cup final victory to their league success.

Kingswells youngsters grab a share of spoils Young guns tie for title

Kingswells Primary have finished joint winners of their league.

The youngsters earned all six points from their final two games in the Great Western Primary League 3 to share the honours with Scotstown. They were up against it after going 2-0 down to Bucksburn, but showed incredible spirit to score three goals in the final 20 minutes to stay on course.

Coach Alex Walker said: "Scotstown finished their games a few weeks ago but we knew we could tie if we won our last two.

"It has been a competitive league this year and it was great for the boys to fight it out for a tie."

Kingswells, who lifted the Emslie Cup in November, play in the Trophy International Cup against Bucksburn at Spain Park tomorrow at 6.30pm.

Alex, one of three coaches, added: "The team will split at the end of this season when they go on to secondary schools so it was great to finish on a high."

STOP RABBITING!
Silence will be golden at Kingswells Primary School this week, when the children stop rabbiting and try to keep quiet for 10 minutes!

The school has risen to the Hold Your Tongue Challenge 2003, a nationwide event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Relief, a UK charity that works to improve the quality of life for people living with cancer.

The money raised by Kingswells pupils will go towards the new palliative care unit which will replace Roxburghe House.

Pupils have taken the "stop rabbiting" theme quite literally, and have been busy making rabbit ears which they will wear during the sponsored silence, which takes place from 10.30am to 10.40am on Friday morning.

Each child has been asked to raise sponsorship from family and friends for every minute they manage to remain silent.

Assistant Headteacher Shonaid Macdonald said: "The children will be sitting quietly in their areas before breaktime on Friday, wearing the rabbit ears they are busy making in school this week. We hope to raise as much money as possible for this worthwhile charity, and specifically for a local cause." (Posted 5.2.2003)

YOUNG CITIZENS' CONCERTS RAISE CASH FOR SCHOOL BOOKS

Enterprising pupils at Kingswells Primary School have raised hundreds of pounds to buy new books for their library by staging a community concert

The 29 youngsters formed the Kingswells Tiddlers Club as part of a project on the seashore.

As well as learning about the voting and electing of club officials, the children also put together a series of concerts for their parents and other locals.

'Seaside Fun' was staged at Kingswells Primary School and Kingswells Community Centre at the end of June.

The children raised £500 to cover the cost of medals for themselves to mark their achievement and the new books for the library.

Teacher Shonaid Macdonald said: "They all took part in the show but the whole project was a valuable experience for them all - from the setting up of the club, electing club officials including a chairman, organising the show, selling tickets and so on.

"We are particularly grateful for the help and support given by the local community, local businesses and parents, who were actively involved with the club and the show."

The books which have recently been purchased for the library acknowledge the work done by the children, stating "Donated by Kingswells Tiddlers Club".

The project stemmed from recommendations in the Education for Citizenship in Scotland report, which was published in June and endorsed by the Scottish Executive. It was launched at Kingswells Primary School by Deputy Education Minister Nicol Stephen.

One of the national priorities for education is to work with parents to teach pupils to respect each other, their neighbourhood and to teach them the duties and responsibilities of citizenship in a democratic society.

The report will form the basis of a national framework on education for citizenship.

The Executive asked Learning and Teaching Scotland to produce a national statement and associated guidance on education for citizenship.

The principle focus was on clarifying the role of formal education (pre-school and school) in equipping young people as citizens. (Posted 10.9.2002)

Poem by Melanie Anderson (P6)

Kingswells is the place for me

It's the place I wint ti be

Its got a skweel that's open plan

An hoses an shops near it han

Its got broad dykes far ye can walk on top

An wids ye can walk through ta ging ta the shop

Its also got a caring vet

Far ye can tak ony sick pet

Ye even get a carry oot

Sa mither disna aye need ti cook

Ging ta the community center ta

Ha a cup o tee

I counld'na sa onything else

But kingswells is number 1 for me.
