Getting Involved

Tall Tales and Short Trousers, An Unofficial History of Kirkcowan School Primary 6 & 7 pupils will be collecting and collating stories and memories from former pupils and staff to record an unofficial history of Kirkcowan School entitled ‘Tall Tales and Short Trousers’. If you have any amusing, inspiring or heart-filled stories you would like to share we’d love to hear from you.

News Release Pupils from primaries 3-5 will be recording the events to prepare a press release in June. This work will also be showcased at the Coffee Afternoon.

Commemorative Garden Children from the nursery and primary 1 & 2 will be creating a garden to commemorate the event.

  2. Dear Mrs Caldwell and Miss Skilling

    I am writing to you today to speak about 250 Anniversary.I think it will be a [HUGE] success do you?

    Firstly I think not 1 not 2 but [3] party’s.I hope it is a big success.Do you?.Do we need to ware school uniform at the party at the school?

    Next I thought the time capsule was a brilliant idea.Did you?.Another Humongous idea was the barbecue.The first time I herd about this sparkling idea I stopped what I was doing and went in to dream land.

    Thirdly I [GASPED] when I herd about the fabulous tea dance in the village hall.Another incredible fact is the time capsule and the cairn.[A cairn is like a tower but made out of stone].

    Finally when I herd about the wonderful idea.It was a ceilidh I thought it was a great idea.

    Thank you Mrs Caldwell and Miss Skiling.

    your Sincerly
