Oor Wullie Photo Competition

To celebrate the end of the Oor Wullie Big Bucket Trail, we have been invited to take some pupils from Eaglesham Primary School to the Big Farewell Event at the SECC on Friday 13th September 2019. This will give a group of pupils the chance to see all 60 large sculptures, 143 smaller sculptures (including ours!), take part in a variety of entertainment and receive free goodies on the day. Since places are limited, we have decided to run a competition. If you took part in the Big Bucket Trail and have any photos of yourself with an Oor Wullie statue, please email the photos into the school (SchoolMail@eaglesham.e-renfrew.sch.uk) with the name of the child and class. Entrant names will be chosen at random on Friday 6th September 2019. All photos will be used at assembly and for a display when “Oor Eaglesham Wullie” returns to the school later in September.


Everyone is urged to keep their #EyesOpen for children at risk during the school summer holidays. A new CPCScotland campaign says we can all do our bit to protect children.

Sports Day

We will go ahead with potted sports in the playground this morning but it is unlikely that the races in the afternoon will go ahead as the forecast is bad for this afternoon. We will tweet updates through the day.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity has launched the competition which will be a legacy piece to mark the end of the year-long charity partnership with Scotmid.
