We are delighted to announce that our Gala held last Saturday made a huge profit of over £4000!  A big thank you to everyone who attended, to all the parent helpers, teachers who came along to help, everyone who donated raffle prizes, gifts and home baking.

Special thanks to our sponsors Nicol Estate Agents for supporting our event, and for donating the Ipad for the raffle’s top prize.

Thanks to Councillor Jim Swift who once again performed wonderfully as our Beat the Goalie. Big thanks to Mark the Janitor and his wife Linda whom we kept busy with setting up and cleaning up afterwards.  Thanks to Kate and Scott Telfour for supplying the advertising banner and once again for placing it around Newton Mearns!

Thanks to Saj and Shahid Sadiq for providing all the delicious Subway sandwiches, and to all the fantastic bakers out there who donated some sensational home baking.

The chocolate cake bake off was another great success, and we had 2 winners – best novelty cake and best tasting cake. These were won by Eilidh Thomson and Laura Osbourne. A Big thank you to Jim Swift who picked the novelty cake winner, and to our very strict tasting panel consisting of teachers Mrs McDougall, Mrs Sinclair and Mrs Uprichard who had the “enviable” task of tasting 14 chocolates cakes and picking a winner!

The top prizewinners in the raffle were as follows:

1st prize – An Ipad Air, won by Ian Cant

2nd prize – An ipad mini, won by Robert Crerar

3rd prize – £100 cash, won by Mrs Malik

4th prize – £50 cash, won by Claire Gallacher.

The parent council has now allocated £2000 to the school for outdoor playground equipment and Friday fun toys and games, and £630 for teacher’s class supplies.

All our fundraising events are organized with the same aim – to support and benefit all our children at Kirkhill – so thank you to everyone who helped make the Gala another Kirkhill success.

Tuesday 16th June – Race Day

On this day we will be holding a traditional ‘races’ Sports Day. This will be held on the banking area. Each year group will be involved in a flat race and then, time permitting, one novelty race of their choice. e.g. Egg and spoon or wheelbarrow. Every 1st, 2nd or 3rd place winner will receive house points which will go towards the Kirkhill House Trophy awarded to the winning house at the end of the session.

Parents watch out – there will even be a parents race so wear your trainers!

Thursday 18th June 2014 – Activity stations

The activity stations will allow all children to participate in a variety of mini sporting activities such as hockey, basketball, javelin and a tug-of-war! These events will be held within the muga and P6/7 playground areas. The children will be split into house teams and the winning house will receive a medal. All points earned will again go towards the Kirkhill House Trophy.As children are taking part in ‘house’ teams, we would appreciate it each child could wear an item of clothing in their house colour. Primary 7 pupils should wear their’ house hoodies’ to both events.


Timings for both days are as follows

P1-3: 10.00am – 12.15pm

P4-7: 1.00pm – 2.45pm

If there is torrential rain on either day, unfortunately the event may have to be cancelled.


Please send your child to school dressed for both sports days in their outdoor school tracksuit with shorts etc. underneath.

Due to Music Services Music Camp which is running from Monday 18th May – Friday 22nd May and involves some of our P7 pupils, the P7 Together Time Assembly (Lochgoilhead Showcase) has been moved again to

Tuesday 2nd June 2015 at 11am.

As part of our Safer Routes to School and Eco Agenda, we will be running a Walking Bus next week (w/b 4th May) and during the short week beginning 25th May. Since it is powered only by good old fashioned leg work, our Walking Bus promotes healthy exercise, reduces dangerous traffic around our school gates and reduces traffic pollution, thereby improving the health and safety of all our pupils.

We would love as many pupils as possible to take part, joining us on the short walk from the Broom shops to the school. Whether pupils are able to walk with us everyday, for part of the week or even just for one day, everyone is welcome!

Each child will be given a reflective tabard to wear on the walk. Please do not send pupils with bicycles or scooters as this can cause complications and can slow down the Walking Bus!

As our Walking Bus is informal, we must stress that it is the responsibility of parents to decide if their child should join the walking bus. The safety of any pupil whilst walking with the bus remains the responsibility of their parents or carers until they arrive on the school premises. Therefore any child whose behaviour is a cause for concern during the walk may not be allowed to continue to participate.

We will meet at the back of the Broom Shops (on the pavement at the back of the dental surgery) at 8.40am every day throughout the school week.
