Happy Easter Holidays!

This term has been very a different one after a long period of Remote Learning, and we again want to thank our families for being our partners in learning during this time. We are so happy to have all our children back in school and to round off the term we are sending each of them home with an Easter egg from the school.

We have also kindly received gift bags for each child from New Cumnock Parish Church and these will be distributed after the holiday to allow them to be quarantined before our young people bring them home.

We wish you all a safe and relaxing Easter holiday.
Mrs McMurdo and Team New Cumnock heart

Autism Awareness Day at NCPS!

Today at NCPS, we celebrated Autism Awareness Day by dressing up as what we want to be when we are older. We did this because this years theme is Inclusion in the Workplace. Throughout the day, each class completed lots of fun activities that related to inclusion in the workplace. Have a look at our day below!

Rights Respecting School Parent and Carer Leaflet!

Please find attached a copy of a leaflet that outlines the most important aspects of Rights Respecting Schools and why we at New Cumnock Primary School integrate the award into our curriculum.

Brooke M – P7

Brooke cooked a homemade meal from scratch all by herself. It was provided free from the New Cumnock Development Trust and Lynn Mullen from Homemade With Love Cafe in New Cumnock set up a Zoom meeting, then an online lesson. All the ingredients were provided free from the NCDT, it was chicken pie with veg and potatoes. She felt proud she managed to do it herself.

Well done Brooke, it looks delicious! We cant wait to be invited round for tea once Lockdown is over!

Emma J – P7

Emma helped her Dad to build a summer hut for the family to sit in during the summer, this included having to dig up the grass that used to be there and make the ground flat, it also involved having to lay slabs for the hut to have a good, sturdy base. The last step was having to actually build the hut. She had to firstly create the frame for the hut, then nail the pieces to the hut and then put the roof on the hut. They also put chips around the hut, put the picnic bench which we made previously in the year and put the bench in the hut. She will also be making a planter to put at the side of the hut in the coming weeks.

It looks wonderful Emma, so many skills learned there and we bet you feel so proud looking at it! Do you take orders?!

Chailyn P – P7

Chailyn walked over 5 miles during Lockdown and she is very proud!

So you should be Chailyn, well done! You have shown such motivation!
