Congratulations to Erin McCulloch (P6) and Lachlan MacDonald (P4) who represented the school in the Stranraer & District Burns’ Club Competition. They both came first in their section and for the first time since Mrs McClymont came HT of Sheuchan School they won the cup. We are very proud of you both.
For many years, Dumfries and Galloway schools have been surveying their parents, seeking their views on many aspects of school life and using this information to make improvements. This is a central feature of school improvement planning, providing opportunities for parents to share their experiences of engagement with the school and contributing to priorities for the school going forward.
The census is taking place online using the SmartSurvey platform which offers many benefits including the secure collection, management and deletion of data. Indeed, preparations for the census have been rigorous to satisfy data protection legislation.

On Tuesday, 3rd March our school was entertained by 4Front Theatre who performed ‘A Fisherman’s Tail’. All pupils thoroughly enjoyed listening to James, John, Andrew and Simon telling the children the story of how they became the disciples of Jesus, the stories of Jesus and his miracles as well as why Jesus was crucified. Children enjoyed the songs, story line and laughed at the funny parts. Thank you to Stranraer’s Baptist Church who brought this wonderful show to us.
Before the February break, P.3 were exploring symmetry and tessellation. The children were creating their own symmetrical pictures using numicon and using Top Marks website to sort symmetrical and non-symmetrical shapes. They also had to complete the shape so it was symmetrical. They also tried tessellation (or Tiling) where we covered a surface with a pattern of flat shapes so that there were no overlaps or gaps.
P4/5 organised the family ceilidh during Scottish week. All families enjoyed Scottish dancing, a lovely supper and entertainment from different children reciting their poems.
Our Scottish week was rounded off with family and friends joining a Scottish morning where the poetry winners recited their poems, received their certificates and classes sung songs such as Jeelie Piece and Donald, where’s yoor Troosers?
All the boys and girls worked hard to practise and perform a Scot’s poem. The finalists were judged by Mr Plant . He had a hard decision in all classes but his final choice was:
P1 – Moray Allison (Raindrops by J K Annand)
P2 – Ava Stevenson (Twa Legged Mice by J K Annand)
P3 – Niamh Castle (Circus by J K Annand)
P3/4 – Lachlan MacDonald (The Magic Pizza by Alison Fitt)
P4/5 – Millie Whorlow (Skippin by J K Annand)
