On the 18th of March, we (that’s Jenna, Millie, Eva and Charlotte) represented Leswalt in an InterSchools curling competition. On a Tuesday night we all go to the ‘ Curling’s Cool Club’ at the North West Castle. We had a great day and managed to come home in 2nd place out of twelve schools! The final was a closely fought game but unfortunately we weren’t the winning team. As a prize, we got an Easter egg. We really enjoyed the experience.
Crazy hair was all the rage at school today! The boys and girls had been buying red noses all week in support of Comic Relief and rounded the fun off today with their mad hair-dos, casual clothes and a very entertaining afternoon….
We hosted Leswalt’s Got Talent; with the children putting on an excellent showcase of their acts to a very appreciative audience made up of their fellow classmates, staff and parents and friends. From dancing babies to cello playing, comedy synchronized swimming to gymnastics, family dance troupe to guitar playing, solo singing to a self-choreographed dance routine – there was quite a variety of talents on show! So lovely to see all of these Confident Individuals giving it their all!
The very tricky job of judging was given to Mr McCracken, Gillian Murdoch and Mrs Buchanan – not an easy task. The boys and girls treated their audience to a sneak preview song from their upcoming show whilst allowing the judges some thinking time. After some discussion they gave the winning certificates and yummy Easter egg prizes to:
1st place – Jack Cloy – singing ‘Rule the World’
2nd place – Mille Smith and Jenna Calderwood – dancing babies routine
3rd place- Auryn, Breagh and Isla Kirkpatrick – synchronized swimming and Baby Shark routine.
Many thanks to all the wonderful acts for the hard work they put into learning their routines. We thoroughly enjoyed watching all of you, having a great afternoon AND raising money for a very worthwhile cause.
** Fundraising update – We raised over £190!! **

To kick start their new French Foods topic, P1-3 spent the afternoon sampling some typical French food. There was a wide range of treats on offer, including croissants, pain au chocolat, macaroons, eclairs and brioche. They even had the chance to taste some snails! Some were delighted about this, others – not so much!! Have a keek at the photos below to see the fun they had, and their reactions upon tasting snails for the first time!
In a follow-on to Friday 1st’s Super Science morning enjoyed by the P4-7 class, the P1-3 pupils had a blast last Friday afternoon! This was to celebrate British Science Week; engaging everyone in lots of fun science-based activities! There was all manner of investigations set up in the classroom and in the hall for pupils and their families to enjoy.
A huge well done to Phoebe and Gregor who represented the school at the Burns Club Competition last night at the Ryan Centre. Both performed their poems with great gusto and did the school proud. Gregor was awarded 1st place in his category!! What confident individuals we have at Leswalt!
A Super Science morning was held across our wee trio today! The P4-7 pupils from Leswalt, Portpatrick and Kirkcolm welcomed The Galloway Forest Astronomical Society with their mobile planetarium and tried out loads of amazing Science activities too!
From engineering to electricity, coding to robotics, human biology to magnetics; the children explored many different scientific tasks and were led on an adventure through the Solar System inside the planetarium. All in all it was great fun…
