Dolphin House Day 4

We have had a fantastic week at Dolphin House! Today we were orienteering and team building before we had to head back to school. Mrs Schendel and I are very proud of all of our pupils who were a credit to their parents and the school this week. We have enjoyed watching the pupils support and encourage each other, face and overcome challenges and fears and achieve their goals. Well done P7, it was a pleasure to share such an amazing experience with you all this week!

Dolphin House Day 3

We have had another amazing day here at Dolphin House! We started off the day with a treasure hunt on the beach where we had to find natural and un-natural materials. We then spent the rest of the day trail biking and exploring the caves in our groups, where some of us faced new challenges and had to overcome our fears. We are all looking forward to the disco tonight and orienteering tomorrow before we head home.


Parent/Carer Questionnaire

At Catrine PS we are constantly looking for ways to improve our school to ensure that we deliver the best possible learning and teaching experiences for our pupils.   We recognise the importance of the views and opinions of parents/carers, so each month we will post a short questionnaire on GLOW. 

It would be much appreciated if you could complete the questionnaire. All responses will be anonymous.  We will display the results of each questionnaire on GLOW so that you are kept up to date with our priorities for improvement.  Our pupils will also complete the same questionnaire in their House groups during our Home Circle time.   

Please complete the questionnaire below by Tuesday 15 January. Thank you.




Dolphin House Day 2

Today we climbed Cornish Hill and learned how to use a map to navigate. The weather was great and the views from the top were fantastic! When we got back to Dolphin House we went to the beach where we learned how to start a fire and then toasted marshmallows. After dinner we got our head torches on to go for a walk through the park. We looked at the stars, listened to the sea and heard some spooky stories! We are looking forward to another action packed day tomorrow.

Dolphin House Day 1

We have all had a great first day at Dolphin House! The children have enjoyed working together on some team building exercises, going for a walk to explore the park and looking for milky quartz pebbles on the beach tonight. We are looking forward to going hillwalking tomorrow.

Welcome back!

Term 3 has started … so much to be done!
Our P7 pupils left for Dolphin House at Culzean Castle this morning for their residential trip, with Mrs Schendel and Mrs McKenna.  They were so excited and we know they’re going to have a brilliant time!
Our P6 pupils are looking forward to filling the P7’s shoes this week, by being Wet Weather Monitors, Door Monitors, Assembly Monitors and being responsible for the Home Circles on Wednesday afternoon.  They’re off to a great start – setting a wonderful example to our younger pupils at assembly this morning.
All of our pupils looked so smart returning to school in their uniform.  We really encourage our pupils to wear their uniform to promote our sense of school community – thank you for your support in this.
Pupils were reminded this morning that school starts at 9.00am ….       Before the holidays we had quite a number of pupils regularly turning up late which can be disruptive for their class.  This situation will be monitored – again, thanks for your support in ensuring our school day can start smoothly.
We’re looking forward to another busy, productive and enjoyable term at Catrine PS.
Mrs Govans
