After 25 years of service at Sheuchan Primary we sadly said goodbye to Mrs Fitzgerald, our Nursery Nurse this afternoon. P7 repeated their songs to entertain us and the staff ‘prepared’ a dance to Mrs Fitzgerald’s favourite song. She then ‘graduated’ from our school just like the Nursery children did this morning. We thank Mrs Fitzgerald for all her hard word and commitment over the years and would like to wish her all the best for the future!
On Friday, 21st June we held an assembly to celebrate Mrs Waterson’s time at Sheuchan Primary School. Classes sung food related songs such as Pizza Hut, Hot dog and Honey, Honey much to Mrs Waterson’s delight. She has worked at Sheuchan for 35 years and she said the best part was talking to all the children each day and watch them grow up. The boys and girls thanked her for all the lovely school dinners she helped cook over the years by presenting her with a handmade card from each class. We wish Mrs Waterson a long and happy retirement. Hopefully now she has time to do all the things she loves to do. Good luck for the future Mrs Waterson.
All the boys and girls had a fantastic time at Glasgow Science Centre today (24th June). P3/4 and P4/5 watched a very interesting show called ‘The Body – The Vitals’. Everyone was very impressed with the energy demonstration at the very end. P6 went to the Planetarium to see Passport to the Planets. After a quick shop stop and lunch, everyone got to explore 3 floors of science fun. Each floor had different science experiments to offer and engaged both adults and children. A busy day but everyone had lots of fun.
Unfortunately due to the rain Glenluce Relay competition was cancelled a few weeks ago. However, the P4-7 from Glenluce arrived at Sheuchan this morning to try again. This time the sun was shining. All the boys and girls really tried their hardest but unfortunately Glenluce just pipped us at the post to win the shield. Well done to all the boys and girls involved.
Sheuchan A and Sheuchan B played at Kirkcolm Gala Day on 15th June 2019.
Sheuchan A fought hard through the tournament and got to the final after a tense penalty shoot out. Again they were facing Belmont A (from last night) but this time they won 2-0 to bring the cup back to Sheuchan. The boys were delighted with their win. Well done boys!
Sheuchan B also played well and made it to the semi finals. Unfortunately they faced Sheuchan A and lost to them. But they should be proud of their playing as they were up against older boys/girls from P6 and P7 through out the tournament.
A big thank you to all who came along and supported our fete on Friday night. The turnout was fantastic and although final totals have not yet ben finalised we hope to have raised roughly £1500. A big thank you to all who contributed to our successful raffles. We would like to say an extra special thanks to all the parent volunteers who came along to help at stalls during the fete or to those parents who came down to the school during the day to help with preparations. The football tournament was won by Sheuchan A Team. Well done boys!
