Thank You!


This week the children from the School and ECC have enjoyed their fabulous Christmas Parties.

A big thank you to parent, Billy Henderson for kindly volunteering to DJ at all the parties. We appreciate him giving up his time to come in and do this.

These parties would also not be the same without our Santa Visit and prizes. A big thank you to the parent council for kindly donating the Santa presents as well as the party prizes.

Finally a big thank you to Santa for making the time in his busy schedule to come and visit the boys and girls from the ECC and P1-3. We know how busy you are at this time of year.

The children have all had a great last week!

Selection Boxes

The Newmilns Regeneration Association have kindly donated selection boxes to the children in the school. These will be coming home with the children today. Thank you very much, it is much appreciated and I am sure they will be greatly enjoyed.
