Our New Primary 1

Our Primary 1 children have been settling in well to life at St Andrew’s.  Last week the newspaper photographer visited school and the children appeared bright and cheerful in this week’s copy of the Dumfries Standard.

P7 Leavers Trip

P7 had an action packed day on Monday 17th June at Braehead Arena, Glasgow.  First we all enjoyed Pikachu Pokemon Detective with a special treat of juice and popcorn.  Then we had fun sitting and chatting with friends at Frankie and Benny’s for lunch.  In the afternoon we had Gravity Trampoline Park booked out for just us.  There were loads of things to do there such as rock climbing, speed challenges, Gladiator style challenges as well as the trampolines.  When the music got turned up, the lights went down and the disco lights came on it was very cool! I think everyone had a fantastic time, P7 did so well earlier this year to raise funds to pay for the whole day out so very well done!


Forest Friday with P2


P2 have been looking at measure in the forest this week.  They tried to find wood as tall as them and used non-standard units to find the length of their arms, shoes, the benches, the den and so on. Some children used sticks, some used leaves, stones or pine cones.  Mr Pumpernickel on BBC Super M. overs got us nice and warmed up for measure before we headed outside. Mrs McIntyre certainly enjoyed the funny song and dance!

Maeve’s shoe was only 4 fir cones long but she found the brick was the same length too!

The bench was ten sticks long.


The den was ten sticks long.

P1 Mabie Farm Park Trip

Today Primary 1 had a super end of year trip to Mabie Farm Park.  The sun shone for us as we had a go at lots of different activities.  The hay barn was very popular as were the, bouncy pillows, slides, trampolines and Henry’s Fort.  As a special treat we got to do some pet handling and got a ride on the choo choo express too.  Everyone came back happy and ready for a good sleep tonight!!

Sports Day Fun

Last Wednesday P1-7 braved the rain and headed down to the Dock Park for our annual Sports Day.  There was a brief break in the clouds to let us complete most of our races and the children showed great sportsmanship cheering on their team mates.  The nursery also popped down to cheer us on.

The children were winning points for their Houses – St Catherine (blue), St Nicholas (yellow), St Bernadette (green) and St Christopher (red).  All teams put in their best efforts and we would like to congratulate St Catherine who came out overall winners on the day.

World of Work

Some of the posters the pupils made when they had to research a career they would like to pursue

P5-P7 World of Work

World of Work 2019

  World of Work was a great success with different fields of jobs coming .  

Some Quotes from the class: “My favourite thing was seeing all the animals ” said the inspirational Archie Hyslop

“When I am older I want to be a green architect and the world of work inspired me to do it “said Samuel Lyagoba.

“It was very interesting learning a lot about glasses and how are eyes work whilst we got to try them out ourselves :)” -Eryk Janas

The pupils  enjoyed and learned valuable information about the different fields.

I hope World of Work will show the children that each field is different and that each should be respected.

Whithorn P7 Leavers Mass

P7 travelled to Whithorn yesterday to celebrate mass with St Teresa’s, St Columba’s, St Joseph’s and St Ninian’s Primary schools.  They learned about St Ninian, participated in a lovely mass, played in the sea and went for an ice cream in Whithorn to finish off a lovely day. Here are a few photos of our day.


Jog Club Celebrations

Yesterday was our last early morning jog club session of this term.  We have been extremely lucky with the weather for this block and Angela (our coach) has been very impressed with how much the children’s  stamina has built up over the weeks.  She was so impressed, in fact that all participants were awarded a medal to celebrate their success.  Well done all, we hope to see you again after the summer!
