The weather held out for us on Friday afternoon to allow the time capsule to be placed inside the Cairn and for pupils and guests to enjoy an afternoon of entertainment. More photos of this event will be available to see at our coffee morning showcase of work on 16.6.12.
Next Week (21.5.12- 25.5.12) Kirkcowan School is the School of the Week on West Sound Radio!
The school anthems chosen by the pupils will be played by Stuart McCafferty on West Sound Breakfast around 8.35am and again in the afternoon with Fiona Shields (in for TJ) around 3.45pm.
Tune in and enjoy the celebrations!
