Mearns Kirk Parish Church School Art Competition

Mearns Kirk Parish Church held an art competition to help celebrate their upcoming Bicentenary Celebration of their church building (1813-2013).

There was an exhibition held over the weekend with a silent auction held on Friday night. It was a unique opportunity to view all the art work depicting Mearns Kirk created by hundreds of pupils from Kirkhill Primary, Mearns Primary, Crookfur Primary and Mearns Castle High School following our invitation to take part in the bi-centenary School Art Competition.

Free Your Feet

During week beginning 21 May 2012 ‘Free Your Feet’ a week long whole school event which encourages all pupils to make walking part of his/her mode of transport to and from school will take place.

All pupils are encouraged to take part and can do so by:

  • walking the whole way to and from school
  • walking to and from the bus stop
  • walking from the drop off point in the car park at Broom shops.

If every pupil participates in some way we hope that together we will:

  • raise awareness of the health benefits of regular exercise as part of every day life
  • reduce traffic congestion and increase pupil safety
  • make a contribution to improving the environment by reducing pollution
