Please see below a transition video showing the new P1 pupils round the Early Years Open Area and Classrooms.
As well as the video we have provided a brief information booklet about starting P1. P1 may look slightly different to normal and hope this booklet as well as our normal P1 guide(attached as a PDF) gives you an insight into P1. Please note that the P1 Beginner’s Guide was produced before changes to plans were made. One important change to take note of is that school starts on Wednesday 12th August. The start times for Primary 1, in the Primary 1F class, on the first three days (12th-14th August) will be 8.50am and the school day will end at 2.50pm. For Primary 1 children in the P1/2 class the start and end times times will be 9.00am and 3pm.

Today we had a new set of Head Teacher Award winners. Not only did they receive their certificates but, for the first time, the pupils were also presented with prizes: Head Teacher’s award pencils! The previous winners at our first assembly were also presented with some. The decision to give prizes has resulted from consultation with all the school children about ways they would like to improve how achievements are celebrated. Here are this week’s winners:
Also at our assembly this week, 12 Primary 7 pupils were presented with their badges for volunteering to be librarians. Our new library monitors give up their lunch times, on a rota basis, to keep the school library organised and tidy.
Today in assembly the children were awarded their badges for Eco Schools Committee, School Pupil Council, Sports Captains and House Captains. Library Committee will be given their badges next week. Please see the Eco and School Pupil Council pages for photos. The Sports and house Captains are below.
We are delighted to announce that Lainey Ireland from P7 is the winner of our new school badge competition. Lainey’s badge was one of four final designs that pupils have been voting on over the past two weeks. Lainey’s badge has now been copy righted to the school for use on school clothing and documents.
Recently, pupils have been taking part in a consultation about possible future uses of our current school site. School Pupil Councillors collated the information from written questionnaire sheets, which were filled in by children of all ages though-out the school. The School Pupil Council then met with Michelle McRobert of Dalbeattie Community Initiative to discuss some of the issues in more detail. Lots of ideas were taken aware from the meeting……
We are delighted to receive a donation of £250 from Dalbeattie Museum on the occasion of Tommy Henderson’s 80th Birthday which also marked the end of this year’s season as the Museum closed its doors for the winter. Dalbeattie Museum has gifted the Primary School with this money as many of the Museum’s members worked on the ‘History of Dalbeattie Primary School’ book which was published earlier this year and they wanted to thank the school for the opportunity for school and Museum to work together on this successful project. Thank you!
Miss Clendinning came into P6 this morning to show us how to set up our own blogs. We had fun writing out first post and editing our header to show off our personality. We hope to share these with our parents by logging into Glow at home.
