Happy Birthday Marble – here is this week’s graph as a present

 

 

Cuteness Overload

Mrs Mathers and her family went Alpaca trekking last weekend, and, although they aren’t their pets, they were just too cute not to include them on the POTW site…

RADICAL TIMETABLE SHAKEUP

Hello

The Pet Of The Week Management Committee have been in a range of meetings about the upcoming timings.

The plan was that each class would continue on the rota leaving the last week of term for P1P.

What’s that I hear you cry….when does that leave us with time to vote for PET OF THE TERM, never mind PET OF THE YEAR

You are indeed correct….

So the POTWMC are proposing the following….

 

  • Friday 4th June – P2 and P1/2 vote for POTW
  • Friday  11th June – P1P and P1S vote for POTW

 

Pet Of The Term runs Monday 14th – Friday 18th June – online voting, open to the world….

That will then give us our 4 pets of the term to battle it out head to head online and heavily promoted on everyone’s socials for Monday 21st to Thursday 23rd June with the winner of PET OF THE YEAR announced on Friday June 25th

It saves carrying over any Pet of the Week voting into next year.

We thank you all for your support at this time..

 

POTWWC

P3CH Voted For Buddy As Pet Of The Week.

In the week that saw Friends back on our screens – here are the runners and riders in this week’s Pet Of The Week

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As a Great Dane, Buddy is going to be HUGE in his family and he was HUGE in the hearts of P3CH. There was a little bit of dithering but in the end they all followed their hearts.  Ms Hoy and Mrs Grant joined in the voting – Miss Thomson remains banned.

Buddy and his massive paws came through as the winner

As always – lets see what that does to the graph

 

 

P3CH Are This Week’s POTW Committee

P3CH described themselves this morning as “calm and quiet” – oh how we laughed and laughed…!!  They are a fascinating bunch who love life..!!  16 boys, 7 girls, Mrs Chalmers, Mrs Hoy and Mrs Grant enjoy the pleasure of them and are also entitled to vote..!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Roman Is Pet Of The Week…!

In the week that sees the Eurovision Song Contest return after last year’s unprecedented break, here are the runners and riders in Pet Of The Week.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

P3M were a dream committee – oh they understood the machinations of the voting process, and even tried to circumvent them – No, you can’t have 2 votes…!  Miss MacDonald and Mrs MacKay too full part too.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It was close in this cutefest but Roman just popped his nose in front

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Lets see what that does to the graph

Now on to P3CH next week….

 

P3M Are This Week’s Pet Of The Week Committee

P3M describe themselves as Brilliant, Intelligent and LOUD..!

They are a happy class of 12 boys and 10 girls, with Mrs Moir on Monday – Wednesday, Miss McDonald on Thursday and Friday and Mrs McKay as their PSA.  They will all be allowed votes.  As they are on the junior corridor rather than the senior one, there is a chance that Miss Murchison won’t be there to cast her customary weekly vote.  Miss Thomson is still banned from voting even if she tries.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Daisy And Rolo Are Pets Of The Week

In the week that we all tried to remember how to hug in anticipation of being allowed to do that again here were the runners and riders for Pet Of The Week

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

P4T lived up to their reputation as being full of character in their voting – with Mrs Gordon, Miss McDonald and Miss Murchison all joing in the vote.  Miss Thomson remains disenfranchised.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

P4T were told to “Follow Their Hearts” in voting – and they followed them right down a rabbit hole to Rolo and Daisy

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As always – lets see what that does to the graph

Back to the little ones corridor for next week, and P3M

 

P4T Are This Week’s POTW Committee

P4T…..ah P4T….what a bunch of wildhearted young Bohemians they are…!  They describe themselves as cool, exciting and creative (with a little touch of crazy on the side)..!  Miss Tipping describes them as “Full Of Character” which is definitely P4T..!

Miss Tipping and Miss McDonald will also get a vote.  Miss Murchison will also try and muscle in on the act.  Miss Thomson remains banned from taking part.

Bismark Is Pet Of The Week

In the week that saw us all hang on to our seats to discover who H was, here were the runners and riders in this week’s Pet Of The Week

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

P4W almost had their vote sabotaged by Guy Fawkes in the guise of Miss Thomson but she has been banned now from Pet Of The Week

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It was very close – very close to Mrs Mathers needing to use her deciding vote, but Bismark just nosed ahead.  It helps that P4W are reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Bismark looks a bit like Aslan…!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As always…lets see what that does to the graph…

 

 

P4W Are The POTW Committee

P4W describe them as quiet, but crazy…which is probably fairly accurate really.  They are a lovely class of 12 girls and 12 boys with Miss Wilson and Mrs Gordon as their lovely teachers.

 

Ollie Is Pet Of The Week

In the week that saw some of us realise for the first time how expensive wallpaper can be, here are the runners and riders for Pet Of The Week

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

P7 have actually been learning this week about voting, elections and political parties – so the chance to participate in their own election came in really handy as they become responsible citizens.  P7 also needed to be confident individuals who voted as they wished, not necessarily the most popular choice or the choice their friends made.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the end Ollie was a clear winner – despite Miss Thomson’s vehement arguing that Ollie was not a pet.  This was quickly put to bed using the pet of the week “yardstick” of “Does it sleep inside or is a horse?”.  As Ollie sleeps inside Ollie was officially declared a pet, and as such the Court Of Arbitration For Pet Status was not required on this occasion.

As always, lets see what that has done to the graph…

 

 

P7 Are Pet Of The Week Committee This Week

Going into P7 now is a bit like going to a different school as they are all in their navy leavers hoodies rather than in their Jade Green Uniform.

Bill Is Pet Of The Week

In the week we lost the best songwriter ever in Jim Steinman, P6/7 were in charge of Pet Of The Week.  Lets see this week’s runners and riders

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

P6/7 are, well, highly excitable when it comes to the democratic process – no other class is involved in mass chanting…..

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It was the closest it has been for a while – in fact if Miss Murchison hadn’t been on the astro and was there to vote it may well have been a different result.

Bill pushed his way through at the last minute..!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And, as always, lets see what that has done to the graph

 

This Week’s Committee – P6/7

Ah – we knew the bad penny would turn up again – P6/7…the class that famously almost unanimously voted for Steve the Snail at Christmas time….!!!

P6/7 are a ragtag collection of 25 of the best Hazlehead Primary has to offer…they have described themselves as “extremely good looking”

Mr Andersen will be entitled to a vote as their teacher/herder and Miss Murchison has an amazing talent of turning up as Pet Of The Week is happening and getting a vote for herself…

 

 

P6 Voted Echo as of The Week

In the week that restrictions loosened so we can have 6 people in our garden and travel to different areas of Scotland, Echo was voted Pet Of The Week by P6.

Lets see the runners and riders

P6 are self confessed “handsome and magnificent – however the word “decisive” cannot really be used.

Echo was a clear winner in the end
