On Friday, 1st October we said goodbye to Mrs McColm, who is leaving Sheuchan Primary to take up the post of headteacher at Sandhead Primary and Drummore Primary. We held a graduation for her as well as a tea party in each class and had a sing song outside. Mrs McColm would like to thank parents for the lovely gift presented to her as well as the beautiful bunch of flowers she received from the Parent Council. She will be greatly missed here at Sheuchan as she was an enthusiastic, motivated and all round great teacher. We wish her well in her new job.
On Monday, 4th October 2021, all P.5’s and P.6’s participated in numerous mathematical challenges organised by Liverpool Maths. All children enjoyed these activities and developed their resilience with the more challenging ones.
On Wednesday, 22nd September, Primary 7 took part in a rugby taster session held by Wigtownshire Rugby Club to help celebrate Scottish Rugby Week. The class really enjoyed learning and developing different skills such as communication, how to pass and receive the ball as well as team work. Many thanks to Nick Arkless for taking the session.

Wow! What a very busy time we had this morning. In glorious sunshine we planted cooking apple trees, dessert apple trees, pear and plum trees. We had to be careful with the delicate roots and branches when planting them. In addition we had to make sure there was enough soil round the roots to help make the trees strong and healthy. Hopefully they will start bearing fruit in a few summers time.
Our old Eco committee, who helped with the proposal for the fruit trees, helped with their own trees as well.
Thank you to Mrs Dampney and friends from Incredible Edible who helped us apply for the fruit trees and plant them this morning. The children had a great time learning about how to look after plants, digging in the soil, looking at mini beasts and planting a piece of history. Hopefully the children will remember the day they planted their fruit trees for years to come.
What a ‘Crazy’ time we had at Sheuchan today. Everyone put in lots of effort into their crazy styles and all looked fantastic. All classes had a great time with Red Nose activities including a Red Nose (pom pom) and spoon obstacle race in the glorious sunshine. Thank you for all your donations, we raised £243 which is amazing. Thank you.
