On Wednesday morning Primary 6 girls were invited to an active schools session at Castle Douglas High School with all the local primary schools. They had a great morning playing football, golf, tennis and cricket while the sun was shining!
To mark the occasion of the Queen’s 90th Birthday, the school is participating in a Stewartry weekend of celebrations on 11th and 12th June (co-ordinated by Lord Lieutenant Sir Malcolm Ross) by organising a quiz in the local community. 30 shops are going to be displaying giant ’90’ collages, which have been made by the children in school. On each collage, there will be an answer to a question on the quiz sheet- quiz sheets can be purchased in advance from many shops and businesses within the town and direct through school. The quiz costs £1 and proceeds will go two of the charities for which the Queen is a patron: Barnardos and Actions for Children. We are very grateful for the tremendous support the local community has shown for this event. Not only have the shops, organisations and businesses agreed to display the collages but their generosity in donating prizes has been amazing.
