Primary 7 Swimming

Over the last 10 weeks P7 have been working towards achieving their bronze, silver and gold awards during their swimming sessions at Auchinleck Academy. The pupils have been developing their water confidence, core aquatic skills and stroke techniques and completed their block today with a fun swim. Well done P7!


A reminder that P2 will be visiting the A M Brown Institute this Friday ( 15th November).

P2 will be making a healthy soup and therefore we kindly ask that children bring along a container so they can take the soup home.

Thank you. 😊

No Screen Day

Spending too much time on phones, computers, tablets and gaming devices can affect children and young people’s language and communication skills, sleep, and general health. In turn, this can affect their education and general well-being. Please click on the link below for further information.

A reminder that Mrs Schendel will be running an after school homework club starting tomorrow at 3pm-4pm.  This is a drop in session and an opportunity to ask Mrs Schendel any questions you may have on supporting your child’s learning at home or to spend time completing homework tasks with your child.  The session will take place in the ICT suite and computers will be available to use.  This club is open to pupils from P1 to P7, however all pupils must be accompanied by an adult.  Pupils will be dismissed from school as normal to meet their parents in the playground and can then       re-enter through the main doors where they will be asked to sign in.
