Nursery Visit the Day Centre

The afternoon children had a lovely time making new friends at the Day Centre today.  This was our second visit and we plan to make these trips regularly from now on as they are so worthwhile.

We took along some activities we do in nursery and shared them with the ladies and gentlemen who were there.  We all had lots of fun and it was great to see the two very different generations interacting!

P2/3’s Visit from Blood Bikes

Last term P2/3 were learning about transport and as part of their topic the children asked if they could learn about the role of the Blood Bikes. Yesterday, Dave Hook from D&G Blood Bikes kindly visited our class to tell the children all about the important job they do, the different forms of transport used by them and how the service is run.

The children thoroughly enjoyed their insight into the vital role that the Blood Bike volunteers provide for our region and asked some great questions. Dave even let each child sit on ‘June’, the Blood Bike he brought with him, and everyone was given a wristband, badge and information leaflet to take home.

Open Day

A huge thank you to all those who came along to our final Open Day on Saturday 20th of May here in our iconic granite building. There was a fantastic turnout for the big picture in front  of the bell tower. It was lovely to feel the atmosphere and buzz in the school as people shared memories whilst visiting classrooms and different areas of the school.

Setting set up and ready to welcome people.

Crafting at Alma House

Spring was certainly in the air today as a group of 12 P6 and P7 pupils visited Alma House in Dalbeattie. The children visited residents and took part in some Spring and Easter Craft activities with them. Easter Bonnets, cards, and decorated boxes were just some of the items that they created together. The children were fantastic ambassadors for the school and were very engaged in dialogue with residents during the visit. A great example of intergenerational working.
