Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Glasgow’s miles better!


WOW!  What fun p6 and 7 had in Glasgow!

Together with Kirkcolm and Portpatrick our children had a wonderful residential trip – 39 pupils, four members of staff  and a lifetime of memories.

It was an adventure just getting there with cars, buses and trains transporting us all up to the big city.

The children walked across the city before  before setting off to the Kings Theatre to enjoy a fabulous performance of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory- the musical”.  The special effects were amazing, and it really brought alive the book by Roald Dahl

It was then time to get some more steps in again by walking to   Ten Pin Bowling – which was  a lot of fun and brought out the competitive streak in the teachers too! 

Evening meal was an all you can eat buffet, which proved a real highlight for many.  Pupils filled up on rice, noodles, ribs, roast, pasta , pizza and even sushi! The ice cream machine and chocolate fountain proved a great hit with many a visit for dessert!

On the way back to our accommodation the group travelled by the Subway – a first time experience for the majority of children.  The children enjoyed the wind tunnel effect created by “the Clockwork orange”

The next day, the group visited Kelvingrove Park and Musuem. The children enjoyed some fresh air fun in the park before exploring the ancient artefacts – with the natural world section being a particular favourite. 

 After that it was back to the youth hostel to collect our luggage and try our second Subway trip. There was a lunch treat at McDonalds – with Happy meals all round,  before we all travelled home having had wonderful experiences.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this great experience possible – all the staff who gave up their personal time, and the children who were praised by members of the public for their excellent behaviour and manners as responsible citizens.

Have a look at all the happy faces for yourself , the smiles say it all!
