On Friday (8.2.13) pupils enjoyed a visit from Linda Greenhill, a member of the local community, who is due to visit a remote area of Nepal at Easter Time. This will be Linda’s second visit to the area. Linda talked about life in Nepal and pupils learned a lot from her very interesting slideshow. Kirkcowan Primary School is hoping to link with a school in Nepal and following Linda’s visit pupils began thinking about how they could introduce themselves to the pupils at the school.
It has been decided that pencil cases will be collected and sent out with Linda along with introductory letters written by the pupils. The reach out committee have produced a poster to give further details about the pencil case appeal which can be seen below. Also a powerpoint link is below which gives details about Nepal for pupils and parents. Did you know the Nepal flag is not rectangular? Do you know what the two triangular shapes of the flag represent?
