Leswalt does Red Nose Day

The pupils dressed up in as much red clothing as they possibly could today, in return for a small donation towards Comic Relief. Our House Captains have been busy selling official merchandise all week and some of our families made a donation towards the worthy cause when they came in for our science afternoon.

We also held our assembly on Friday, where we explored how Comic Relief helps children to get their rights. We listened to how the charity helps homeless people, those with disabilities and those living in poverty. Everyone realised how much of a difference their pennies will make to people around the world.

We raised a fantastic grand total of £73.64! Thank-you to everyone who donated!

Super Science Afternoon

To celebrate British Science Week, we held an open afternoon today where several family members joined us for some science fun!

We had lots of science stations on offer to put our STEM skills to the test, including: making a hovercraft; building spaghetti bridge; designing a parachute to get the Lego man to safety; creating fireworks in a glass; growing a rainbow; and by far the 2 most popular/messiest experiments – making a volcano and cornflour slime! Mrs McKnight was having heart palpitations due to the mess on her carpet and was seen several times throughout the afternoon walking up and down the corridor with various cleaning supplies!!!

Pupils worked in small groups, accompanied by an adult or two, to work their way around the stations and enjoy the various challenges on offer. We had a brilliant afternoon, and thank you to all the adults who joined us!

Curling’s cool bonspiel

Our team of Cara, Brandon, Mark and Carys recently took back to the ice to take part in the annual inter-school curling bonspiel at the Ice rink in Stranraer.  Every year a trophy is awarded in the memory of Mrs Baillie’s grandfather.

Leswalt were skipped by Cara Jamieson and did get to the play-offs.   Glenluce Primary were the eventual winners of the competition.  Our team thoroughly enjoyed their day at the North West Castle and mixing with all their friends from other schools.
