Goodbye Miss Barbour

Today we said goodbye to Miss Barbour who is our P1/2 teacher. She joined Sheuchan Primary in August 2020 when she taught P7. She has recently secured a permanent post as a PE teacher in a school in Glasgow. To send Miss Barbour off in style, we held a mini sports day for her which she and the rest of the school enjoyed. We would like to wish Miss Barbour all the best for her new job and best wishes for the future.

P7 – Burns’ Supper

Primary 7’s had a busy day today preparing for their Burns’ Supper. There were lots of tattie peeling, dicing and cooking going on in the kitchen as well as decorations being made and speeches being rehearsed in the classroom.
P6 and P7 enjoyed a fantastic afternoon. The supper was filled with enjoyable speeches, Highland dancing, piano recitals and even a wee dance of the Gay Gordons. In addition, a marvellous supper of haggis, neeps and tatties was enjoyed by (almost) everyone. Our afternoon was rounded off with Auld Lang Syne. Well done to everyone who took part and made it such an enjoyable afternoon. Many thanks to Mrs McClymont for helping to cook and serve the supper.
