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.

Our Easter Church Services will be held on Thursday 2nd April. The P1-3 service will start at 10:00am and the P4-7 service will start at 1:00pm. The services will be held in Broom Parish Church and will be led by Rev Jim Boag.

We are delighted that our school choir, led by Miss Roy, will be performing at both services, as will the recorder group led by Mrs Smart.

Some ladies from Broom Church have kindly offered to provide tea and coffee in the vestibule after the P1-3 service and before the P4-7 service. All donations for coffee will, as usual, go to a charity chosen by Broom Church.

Due to the timings of the services we have made the following changes for Thursday 2nd April only:

We are the Kirkhill Sports Committee.

Sport Scotland Award Logo compressed

 We have been meeting to chat about how we can take sport forward even more in Kirkhill.

 A few months ago, we applied for a very special award called the Sport Scotland Gold Award. This is very special because only a very small number of schools are awarded Gold for their Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport. We have just found out that Kirkhill is the only primary school in East Renfrewshire to have been awarded a Gold Award and we will be presented with a Sport Scotland Gold flag as a reward. This is because of our PE lessons, our extra-curricular clubs, our playground activities (like the MUGA and PLAYZONE) and all of our Health Weeks and Sports Days.

 We just wanted to say a HUGE well done to all of the staff, pupils and volunteers who work so hard and go the extra mile. . . it is due to all of you that we have received this award!
