Today the whole school took part in some Zumba with Kilmarnock Academy dance leaders Ciara and Alicia. We all had a great time! 🕺🏻💃🏼🎄
A big well done to all the boys and girls in Primaries 1 & 2 for a fantastic performance of ‘Gnome Alone’.
They told the story of Norman Gnome who always wanted to help Santa paint the sleigh, groom the reindeer and pack the presents but never got the chance until all the elves and fairies were too tired on Christmas Eve and he finally got to help Santa deliver the presents.
Thank you to all the staff involved in putting this show together and to all the parents and families for their support.
Enjoy taking a look at the photos from our dress rehearsal!
With Christmas fast approaching I know that we are all more mindful than ever of the effects of poverty on the lives of many of the families we work with.
A parent has brought to my attention the pressure she feels from well-meaning fellow parents looking for cash contributions to gifts for her three children’s class teachers.
Last year the BBC ran a feature about this practice with the simple message that thank you is enough. You may wish to share this message with your own parent body to reassure those who cannot afford to provide a gift to a teacher and who may then not allow their child to attend school at the end of term to cover up any embarrassment.
If you are sharing this message, please reassure parents that there is no ban on bringing gifts to teachers, but that a home-made present or a small token is appreciated just as much.
Wishing you all the best this festive season.
Football training is now finished for the festive period and will return in the new year in January or February. The players and parents will be notified on its resumption.
Just a quick reminder that children should bring in clothing for ‘Gnome Alone’ by this Friday (6th December). Please ensure these are in a named carrier bag.
Fairies – a pair of white tights or leggings
Narrator/Bell Ringer/ Present Packer – Christmas Jumper and/or accessory
Clown – white school shirt
Thank you for your continued support.
