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!
