Below are photos of our Eco and School Pupil councillors for 2021-2022. We shall be taking the photos again once the children have received their badges. Unfortunately, one councillor was absent from school on the day the photos were taken so these pictures are interim ones.
It has been lovely to see some of you taking part in this activity. If you haven’t already planned to do so, please consider fitting this outdoor learning activity into the remaining weeks of school term. If you scroll further down this blog page, you will find the link to open the trail and quiz. I shall not be revealing the answers until Wednesday 1st July but here are some pictures meantime, of some folks enjoying the fresh air in Dalbeattie Town Wood.

Lots of deserving pupils were again awarded their certificates and prizes for their hard work, effort and positive attitude to their learning. Our photos show several successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens.
Also pictured are all our young people who took part in the recent schools gymnastics competition.
Today in awards, we had many successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens who were awarded with their certificates. We also had a visit from Mr and Mrs Wilbur from Dalbeattie Chamber of Trade who came to receive a cheque for £57 from the Rotakids Club for the Christmas lights appeal. The Rotakids Club, had, under the guidance of Mr and Mrs Cathro, raised the money with ‘Guess the Sweets in the Jar’ before the Christmas holidays. Rotakids is a junior Rotary Club which aims to undertake good work for the community, school and the wider global environment. Certificates were also awarded for good performance in Accelerated Reader quizzes. Also at the assembly, were senior High School pupils who informed us about the new recycling bins in the dinner hall so that waste can be better segregated.
Today, several pupils were awarded with much deserved certificates for being successful learners and effective contributors, with many good role models showing good focus, concentration and excellent attitude to their learning and the school community. Also presented were two special certificates, chosen by Mrs Gray for skills in PE. The whole of Primary 7 were awarded for their resilience and determination during cross country in poor weather conditions. Excellent!
It was good to welcome back after the Christmas holidays and Mrs Duncan talked to the school about the new year ahead. Many successful learners, effective contributors, confident individuals and responsible citizens were also presented with their much deserved Head Teacher’s awards.
