On Friday 15th February we were joined at our assembly by Sandy Jamieson from the Janice Jamieson Memorial Foundation.

Active Travel Breakfast

On Friday 15th of February we had an Active Travel breakfast in school. This breakfast was organised by Katie from ibike and Sue from the WOW project. We were also joined by Strider the WOW project mascot.  Dalbeattie Primary School are participating in both projects and want to encourage as many pupils as possible to travel to school in an active way. Over 100 pupils attended for breakfast on Friday. Well done all those active travellers. Keep up the fantastic effort.

Rocks and Wheels

On Monday 10th December, Primary 3 went to visit the old school as part of ‘our community’ topic.  We met Michelle from Dalbeattie Community Initiative, who took us into the old infant building and told us about the proposal for ‘Rocks and Wheels’.  We were all intrigued to find out about the plans and what it would mean for us, the people of Dalbeattie and the wider community.

We were excited to hear of plans for climbing walls, a hostel and a cafe, as well as many other things!  It would mean lots of people coming into our town and would bring lots of opportunities for jobs and more visitors.

The plans looked great. We were then taken on a little treasure hunt/orienteering route to find letters.  These letters then spelled out two words, ‘Better Lives’, and this is what Michelle said she wanted for our community.

Thank you to Michelle and also to Mrs Duncan, Mrs Blackwood and Christopher, who helped on the day.
