We are lucky enough to have a lot of costumes that we need in school for the nativity, however we are asking if you have any of the following at home (please do not buy anything new) for your child to wear, it would be appreciated if you could send them in with the following items.
Angels and Stars: White tights, white leggings or white socks
Cows, Horses and Shrews: Blue, black or brown t-shirts (We are planning on using some black face paint for the shrews, please contact the school if you DO NOT wish us to use face paint on your child)
Shepherds: Tea towel and dressing gown
Narrators: Christmas jumpers and anything Christmassy (boppers, tinsel etc)
Thank you again for your support.
We will celebrate our Harvest Service on Wednesday 9 October at 9.30 a.m. within the school. We look forward to seeing you. Donations of tins/biscuits/dried foods etc. will be gratefully received and then donated to a local food bank.

As we are enjoying some fantastic sunny weather, please ensure your child has sunscreen applied before coming to school. A hat can be worn during break times.
As part of our Play on the Longest Day celebrations, Primary 1 and Primary 2/3 decided to make the most of the nice weather and explore the outdoors. We talked about the skills that we develop through play.
Here are some of their ideas…
‘We were being creative.’ Bette
‘We were learning to solve mysteries.’ Kiara
‘If someone falls we help them up.’ Olly
‘We share with each other.’ Lexi
‘Being kind to each other and if you fall out you can help each other to sort it out.’ Ellie
You are warmly invited to our Prize Giving/Closing Service on Wednesday 26 June at 9.30 a.m. within the school.
We look forward to seeing you.
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.
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:
If your child requires a packed lunch for their summer outing on 13 June, please ensure you have it ordered through ParentPay in advance. Thank you.
