Catrine PS – WWI Research Excellence


Catrine PS were presented with a Certificate of Excellence for WWI Research by Deputy Lieutenant for East Ayrshire, Richard Vernon.  The P7 class, led by Mrs McKenna and assisted by Mr Garven, were involved in a wide variety of activities in the weeks leading up to the 100th Anniversary of the end of WWI in November 2018. 

Headteacher Mrs Govans nominated them for this award in recognition of their hard work and commitment, which included: organising a litter pick around Catrine War Memorial in partnership with Catrine Community Council, researching the history of all the soldiers listed on Catrine War Memorial, creating a WWI Memorial Banner which was displayed in school and in Catrine Parish Church, making remembrance crosses bearing the names of Catrine’s fallen soldiers and planting them, along with poppy seed, in the grounds of Catrine PS.

They also prepared and presented a wonderfully moving Service of Remembrance, welcoming the wider Catrine community into the school to remember the soldiers of Catrine. 

Former P7 pupils, Lucy, Chloe and Bruce – all now in S1 at Auchinleck Academy – were presented with their Certificate of Excellence alongside Mrs McKenna and Mr Garven.

Cumnock Rotary Club – Quiz

Four P7 pupils represented Catrine PS on Friday night at the annual Cumnock Rotary Club Primary 7 Quiz.

Chloe McCluckie, Carley Cuthbert, Tyler McPike and Aidan Murphy had to answer 60 questions, covering subjects from Sport to Geography to Scotland to Films/TV.

Although our team didn’t win, they worked very well together and represented our school in a responsible and sensible manner.

Thanks to their parents for coming along to support our pupils – it was a great night!
