Coffee Afternoon Showcase of Work for 150 years

There was a tremendous turn out of people at the coffee afternoon on Saturday to mark the end of the celebrations for 150 years. The mosaic was unveiled by Kate Anderson, local artist, who was thanked by Mrs Caldwell for all her hard work and presented with flowers. Old photographs were displayed in one of the classrooms for people to reminisce together and a baking stall, tombola and commemorative items were sold in another of the classrooms. “Tall Tales and Short Trousers: An unofficial history of Kirkcowan School” was a great seller, and on its release sold close to 100 copies!

Altogether an incredible £800 was raised from this event. Thank you so much to everyone who donated, helped and/or ran around tirelessly on the day ensuring eveything went so well!

  1. What a fab amount and what a busy afternoon! A real success, and a credit to staff, pupils and the 150Years Committee. The pupils book was great and has sold really well. It has been an honour (and lots of hard work) to be involved with the Committee during the organising, helping at all the events and with Kate producing the mosaic with Art Specialist Miss Siwo (apologies if name incorrect spelling), Lynn, Wendy & Shalla. It will be a lovely, lasting memento of the Celebrations. Well done to everyone involved in all the 150years Events.

  2. Thanks for your blog Mrs Adams! I am glad you enjoyed all the celebrations. Saturday was a great success, everyone who helped organise and support the event should feel proud.
