Runner Up in Christmas Card Competition

We are very excited to announce that Melissa Fraser (P.5) is a runner up in the 2021 Christmas Card Competition which was set by The Rt. Hon. Alister Jack MP who is our Member of Parliament for Dumfries and Galloway. It must have been a very difficult job for Alister Jack’s team to judge all the entries. All the children who entered this competition received a certificate to thank them for their participation. Melissa received her certificate and a £25 gift voucher for Amazon.
Well done to Melissa and everyone who entered.

Awards for 3rd December

This week the awards were presented for the Learning Aliens and Literacy. Everyone with an award enjoyed a lovely cup of hot chocolate and a biscuit. Well done everyone! Next week awards will be given out for a Learning Alien and Citizenship.

Awards for 19th November 2021

This week we awarded two certificates per class. The first one was for the person who is using our Learning Aliens in their learning and the second was for progress in their Numeracy. All the children enjoyed a hot chocolate and a biscuit with the Headteacher as an award. Looking forward to seeing who will be our winners next week for the Learning Alien award and our new award for Citizenship. Good luck!

Children In Need 2021

What a fantastic range of colours and styles we had coming through the school gates this morning to help raise money for Children in Need. The children were all very excited and looked fantastic. All classes had fun taking part in different activities throughout the day, within their classrooms. A final total will be announced at the start of next week. Thank you very much for your kind donations.

‘Out of this World’ winners

Well done to all the children who received an ‘Out of this World’ Award for displaying and using out Learning Aliens. The winners enjoyed a delicious cup of hot chocolate and a biscuit with Mrs McClymont as well as receiving their certificate. Who will receive the award next week? Will it be for Captain Resilient? Or being Curious Q? Or perhaps for using Reflect-O in their work?

Remembrance Service

Today we took part in a Remembrance Day Service outside in out Remembrance Garden. Sophie Hall, a secondary pupil, played the Last Post and Reveille on her trumpet. We participated in a 2 minute silence as well as reflecting on the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae. As part of our short service pupils laid their class wreaths and listened to the National Anthem.
