Congratulations to all at Onthank Primary School for achieving Dyslexia Friendly Schools Silver Status following our recent accreditation visit.
A group of P6 pupils along with Mrs Klein and Mrs Bell attended the award ceremony on Wednesday at Dumfries House, Cumnock to collect the award.
Campbell, Emily, Evie, Euan, Gregor and Rhiannon delivered a confident presentation highlighting the good work being carried out throughout the school to include and support all learners.
They were delighted to accept the award on behalf of everyone at the school.
WELL DONE ONTHANK!!
As part of Positive Choices Week, P6K enjoyed a session from Kilmarnock Football Club. The focus was on Kilmarnock Community Sports Trust and the importance of being active.
Congratulations and well done to P6 pupils Emily Tosh, Stuart Anderson, Thomas Urqhart and P7 pupils Alix Hartley and Abbie Stevenson who recently took part in the Ayrshire Music Festival, Double Bass Solo Class.
A special well done goes to Stuart and Alix who both won their class.

We are the DFS pupil group for Onthank Primary School. We organise events like the DFS workshop and whole school assembly. We invited all pupils and parents/carers to come to the DFS workshop. There were lots of fun activities for everyone to do.
We have already achieved our Bronze Award and are currently working towards our Silver accreditation.
Our DFS school mascot is Dom the DFS Diamond. Keep an eye out for him around the school!
Four of our good friends have made a movie called DFS A Wider World using IMovie trailer. You will be able to check it out at a later date by scanning a QR code.

P6K had a fabulous time at Pierburg, Dumfries House.
We spent the day learning about plants and vegetables with Michelle and Trudy. We were lucky enough to harvest our own vegetables from the garden, make some delicious soup and plant some Chard.
Today as part of our Dyslexia Friendly Schools journey, the whole school was involved in NO PENS DAY WEDNESDAY. This is a national speaking and listening event which encourages exciting classroom discussion. Check out the blog for class photos.
P6K endured the heat of the last day of school to harvest their potatoes. Mucky hands and smiley faces all round.
Well done to Adam Thomson (P6K) for all his achievements in swimming. Adam brought a few of his medals and trophies in to school today to show his class!
