Mauchline Primary School & ECC Baking Recipe Book

Calling all Bakers!!

The Parent Council are creating a Mauchline Primary School & ECC Baking Recipe Book as part of our fundraising for 2021 and are inviting you to send us your favourite baking recipe’s to include in it!

For your recipe to be included all we need you to do is to write down your favourite cake, tray bake, desert or pie recipe on paper or in an email and post in the Baking Recipe Box located within the initial door at the school reception or email us at

Please ensure you include your recipe title, ingredients, instructions on how to make, your name and Primary/ ECC class!

All recipes must be submitted by Thursday 1st April 2021 to be included and we ask that you only submit 2 per person due to available space within the book.

Recipe books will be available to order and we will let you know soon how to do so!

Red Nose Day 2021

Red Nose Day

The Children’s Leadership Committee (CLC) would like the children and young people of Mauchline Primary and ECC to participate in Red Nose Day 2021, which falls on Friday 19th March.

The theme is ‘Funny is Power’.

Parent Pay will be set up to receive a minimum donation of £1 for those who wish to donate.

The CLC are promoting  the following activities to fundraise for RND:

  • In school sale of red noses at a cost of £1.50. There are limited number. These will be sold at lunchtimes.
  •  Children to share funny  jokes which we will tweet across the day.
  • Children to make a red nose out of red collage materials or items to show that everyone is different, unique and special. Teachers please encourage this on your blog or in class. Entries should be posted onto the school twitter page using the @MauchlineC tag line. The CLC will choose 6 winners from across the school who will receive a certificate.
  • Dress in red or wear a red item on Friday 19th March.

Class teachers will also be using the  the ‘Comic Relief’ resources in school to promote Red Nose Day.
