Queen’s Jubilee Preparations

We started our Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations last week. Every child in school made a mosaic tile and these tiles will be put together to make the Queen’s head. All the children enjoyed making their tile.  Thank you very much to Diana Hamilton for her organisation, preparation and help on Friday.

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.

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.
