Primary 1 had a fantastic day exploring Blair Drummond Safari Park. We drove through the Animal Reserve to see some of our favourite animals. After that we went to see Lola, in the Sea Lion show. We were very excited to visit the play park, followed by a trip on the boat to Chimp Island. Then we headed over to Lemur Land & finally we rounded our day off by having a shot on the Astroglide slide.

Primary 7 – Blair Drummond Safari Park Trip

Primary 7 had a great day at Blair Drummond Safari Park yesterday for their last ever primary school trip! After a long journey the pupils enjoyed seeing all the animals on the safari drive, but were glad to finally get off the bus to explore the rest of the park. The highlights of the day included the Astraglide, the sea lion show, playing in the adventure park after lunch, the Flying Fox, pedal boats and boat safari to see the chimps. We all had a fantastic time and were so glad that the rain didn’t make an appearance as forecast.

Blair Drummond Trip (P3/4)

What a fantastic day we all had yesterday at Blair Drummond Safari Park.  We loved seeing all the animals, especially the monkeys jumping on the buses!  We watched Lola, the sea lion, at the Sea Lion show and had great fun in the huge park.  We then went on a boat trip to Chimp Island and floated along in the Pedalos.  It was a brilliant day all round!

We were so lucky that the sun shone for our Sports Day last week!  What a fantastic morning.  Well done to all the children (and adults!) who took part.  Once again our pupils impressed us with their sportsmanship, encouragement and determination.  Well done everyone!

Heart Start with Mrs Watt

Last week P3/4 were shown how to help in an emergency.  Mrs Watt came into class to talk to us about DR ABC, how to help if we found someone unconscious.  She also showed us how to perform CPR.  The kids loved it and we all learned a lot. Thank you Mrs Watt!

Primary 7 STEAM Transition Day

Yesterday eleven Primary 7 pupils attended the STEAM Transition Day at Dumfries House which was organised by Auchinleck Academy. The pupils  had the opportunity to experience five STEAM  workshops throughout the day: Science, Technical, Computing, Maths and Art. The day was a great chance for the pupils to meet and make friends with pupils from other primary schools, to get to know teachers from the academy, to  learn lots and have fun too!

Blair Drummond Trip – information

We’re all looking forward to a great trip to Blair Drummond Safari Park on Thursday 13th June.

  • We’re asking all pupils to be at school by 8.30am on Thursday morning so that we can get registered and toileted quickly, aiming for all three buses to leave by 8.45am
  • No mobile phones please
  • Pupils don’t need to bring any money – we will not be visiting the gift shop
  • Pupils should wear their Catrine PS school uniform polo shirt and jumper please, and then shorts/leggings/trackies and comfy shoes
  • Pupils should bring a light jacket in case of rain, sun lotion/cream should be applied at home
  • Pupils should bring a packed lunch (or order from ParentPay) in a disposable bag, so that when they’ve finished their lunch everything can go in the bin and they don’t have to carry a lunch bag around
  • When the buses return to school, all pupils will go straight back into their class and, once everyone has returned, we will ring the school bell and pupils will exit the school via their usual exit.  The safety of your children is our utmost priority so we appreciate that whilst this might take a wee while it ensures that we know that every child is leaving the school safely.

We have 2 extra adult spaces for the trip. If you are able to be a parent helper (although, please note that you will not be placed with your own child’s class) please complete below:
