Cross Country Competition

Three Primary 6 girls braved the elements today to take part in the Nithsdale Primary Schools Cross Country Championships.  The conditions were very muddy and it was extremely cold but the girls showed great determination with Leah finishing an amazing 6th out of over 40 girls and as a team the girls finished an impressive 5th!  The hot vimtos when we got back to school were definitely needed!  Well done Girls!

Nursery goings on!

Look at what we’ve been up to in Nursery! We’ve had a busy few weeks recently! With sessions of Balance Bikes and Let’s get Sporty, we’ve had a visit from our Dental Health Officer, Pam, and her friend Farley. Aaaaaaand we had a town walk looking at the old buildings and even a story in the Ewart Library, all tying in with our topic about the past.  As you can imagine, we were super tired that day! Currently we are collecting photos of weddings, christenings, confirmations to show each other in Nursery, so if you still have some at home, we would really like to see them!


P5 were busy baking Viking bread today! This is linked with our current History topic, as well as Maths and Literacy. The children enjoyed eating their bread with honey: Viking style! Thanks very much to our parent helpers for leading this activity.

P2 Forest Friday

P2 have been out in the forest for the past 3 Fridays. We have been den building, bug hunting and playing in the natural environment, we didn’t even mind the rain on weeks 2 and 3. This has been a great learning experience for the children and they have really enjoyed themselves.


Active Girls Week


This week as part of our Cluster Health Programme we have been offering lunch time activities to celebrate girls in sport.  All classes had an activity to attend and received water, fruit snack and a certificate for taking part.  Our Sports Committee Reps, Shannon and Nicole helped promote the event.  Well done all who attended!

Minibridge Competition in Glasgow

On Tuesday 14th March, 12 pupils from Primary 6 and 7 travelled to Glasgow to take part in the Scottish Bridge Union Minibridge competition. All 3 teams played extremely well and came a respectable 7th and joint 11th out of 18 teams. This was no easy task playing against well established teams while only learning the game themselves since last November. All pupils were a credit to the school. A fun day was had by all.
