Chat with Mrs McCracken

Chat with Mrs McCracken is back!  Come along to the school on Monday 25th of March at 1.45pm to be involved in this informal opportunity to talk about what is working in the school and what you would like to see change!

School Charter and Restorative Approaches

Primary 5/6 devised our school charter.  This will be reviewed over the remainder of this session and early next.  This charter lays out how we will all work together to respect our own rights and the rights of others,

Over the next week the children will learn more about Restorative Approaches – a new approach to how we manage certain incidents and difficulties in school – more information will be issued to parents soon,  WE hope to have an information session in school about this too.


Comic Relief

Thanks to all who Raised in Red today and helped us to raise £89.66 for Comic Relief. A big well done to the Rights Respecting Team for their hard work in organising this event.



Global Citizenship Coffee Afternoon

Well done to the Global Citizenship Team who worked hard to run a very successful Coffee Afternoon. The event was a great success and very busy! Thank you to all who came along and helped to support this event which managed to raise £164.33 to buy a water supply for a community in need.

Also a big Thank You to all the members of staff, especially Mrs Cochrane who helped it all to run smoothly on the day.


Dark Skies- British Science Week

British Science Week has gotten off to a great start here at Newmilns Primary School. Over the past 2 days we have had the Dark Skies Observatory visit with their mobile planetarium. This was all made possible through a successful funding application to the Edina Trust. As it was very dark inside it was quite difficult to get pictures to share with you all but here is a small selection of Primary 4 lying down to enjoy the show.


British Science Week-Dark Skies

Next week is British Science Week and we have been lucky enough to secure funding through the Edina Trust to have the Dark Skies Observatory visit with their mobile planeterium. Over their two day visit all children will have the opportunity to participate in this unique experience.

As this year is also the 50th anniversary of the moon landings I’m sure you will agree this is a great way to recognise this and celebrate!


World Book Day- Reminder

World book day is taking place on Thursday 7th March. All children should have now received a letter about this.

As this year’s theme is ‘Share a Story’ all classes will be involved in a share a story activity with P7 reading to P1/2, P5/6 reading to the ECC children and 2 guest readers are coming to read to P4 and P2/3.

Children are welcome to bring along their favourite story on the day to share with their classmates.

As part of our World Book Day celebrations the ECC will be taking forward a bedtime story theme next week. Please look out for information in the ECC  and ask your child’s key worker for more information.
