Everyone enjoyed a very special Scottish ‘supper’ including this wonderful McCoo cake!
Our whole school had a very successful trip to M&Ds kindly hosted by the Variety Club. Children all enjoyed the atmosphere, rides and treats that were available. Some children (and adults!) being brave and trying new rides…..some of them got soaked!
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.
Primary A hosted their annual Easter Egg hunt just before the holidays. There were prizes for most eggs found and best Easter collage.
On Friday we had a celebration of all things Scottish.
Janet worked with all classes in PE to prepare dances with help from our Barshare Primary buddies.
We had a lovely snack and then enjoyed songs and poems together.
Before a traditional lunch of haggis, neeps and tatties Jim , who helps us with Scouts, did the address to the haggis.
In the afternoon Jack and David from Live Music came to entertain us.
What a fantastic way to end the week!
The Hillside team put on their Christmas show today and this year it was just fantastic! Friends of the school came back to help, pupils from Barshare joined in and the children and young people of Hillside showed off their super dance moves after weeks of practice.
We had the Seniors line dancing, the Secondary class and Primary C were ballet dancing angels and disco stars, Primary A & B were shepherds, sheep and funky camels. You all did the school proud.
Thanks to friends and family for making time to come and watch and join in the celebrations.
Huge thanks to Mr Currie and his wonderful team for putting on the Christmas Party in St Thomas Hall, Muirkirk.

They managed a staggering 3707 bounces and raised over £300!!!
A big thank you to Primary C for organising the day.
