We celebrated all our children and young people’s achievements this year in style.
Certificates were awarded to each individual for the area of the curriculum they had made most progress in. Participation was recognised at Pulse Recording Studio, horse riding, Caledonia Awards and Saltire Awards.
Shields were presented to our PE champion, best outdoor learner, most improved primary and secondary pupils.
Our Sports’ Day girls and boys took home a shield as well.
Next year we look forward to working with our 2 head girls and vice-head girl.
Thanks to all family and friends who made time to join us.
We had a lovely day at Ayr on Tuesday.
Our Scouts and Guides organised for us as a whole school to go to the Low Green and we had a fabulous day.
We played games, had a chippy for lunch and played in the park or on the beach until it was time for home.
Thanks to Scouts & Guides for their organisation and everyone who made it such a fun day.
On Friday (12/5/17) a group of dedicated helpers came from Caledonian Bottlers to Hillside School and spent all day working really hard to get our garden looking fantastic for the summer.
We really appreciate the time and effort that went in to painting, weeding, trimming shrubs and even making a wheelchair friendly planting station.
Fingers crossed we get the good weather back soon to make the most of it!
Last week, everyone at Hillside had a super time hearing about and trying out different types of work with help from family and friends from nearby businesses.
We had visitors to teach us how to cook, be active and safe to name a few.
Children and young people learned about the fire service, police work and even had a pamper afternoon to relax!
Thanks to family members who came in to find out more about what we do at Hillside to develop skills for learning, life and work.

We had a great morning clearing out the garden with lots of families here to help. Janet gave each class an area to clear and then the hard work began! Weeding, digging and a general tidy up meant we built up quite an appetite. Thanks to those who made us our tasty snack!
Primary A hosted their annual Easter Egg hunt just before the holidays. There were prizes for most eggs found and best Easter collage.
Primary C did a great job organising our Comic Relief afternoon.
We wore our pjs and had a raffle then watched a film chosen by our young people.
It was a super afternoon and we raised £115 for a great charity.
Well done everyone!
Yesterday saw the end of Fairtrade Fortnight. Thanks to the Secondary and Senior Classes for arranging our Fairtrade snack shack and sponsored walk.
This afternoon we enjoyed a story and a strawberry tart to celebrate World Book Day. Here are a few super costumes from our fantastic families!
Three members of Education Scotland visited our school this week and were pleased with what they saw. Some comments were that our values were lived, our pupil self esteem guidelines were super and our staff team was outstanding!
No grades as it was a training exercise for them but a very positive experience all round.
