Wednesday 15th January 2014 was a very special day here in Mount Florida Primary School. The Right Honourable Lord Provost of Glasgow visited our school. She was piped into the building by a local piper and the Pupil Council welcomed her. After a cup of tea, Mrs Neil escorted her to the gym hall where the whole school sung a special song, 'We're So Proud Of Our School'. The Lord Provost said she "hadn't heard that song before" and that she liked it. The Lord Provost told the children all about her job, her Chain of Office, her favourite places in Glasgow and a bit about all the Commonwealth Games arenas. Her Council Officer was smartly dressed in his official uniform and carried a beautiful ornate Mace. We were then so lucky to have a visit from 'Clyde' the Commonwealth Games Mascot and he mimed some sporting activities and the children had to guess what these sports were. The Lord Provost presented Mrs Neil with a commemorative plaque to mark her visit. The boys and girls presented the Lord Provost with a framed photograph of the pupils and staff of Mount Florida and a cheque for her charity to the value of £100.00. Everyone here in school had a wonderful day.
Mrs Neil would like to thank the boys and girls of the school and the nursery for their exemplary behaviour and the staff for making the school look its best.

Mount Florida Primary are proud to have kept their eco – status. Miss Moore and the eco – team have worked hard to maintain the high standards required to achieve this. Unfortunately the existing flag has been shredded by strong winds. We have been given a new one to fly proudly in our playground. Well done to our eco –team and we just love our spectacular eco monsters created by Primary 3.
