The Blair

Learners & staff were invited along to the Blair  this morning to receive a cheque for £700. This will go along way to our Mini Bus Fndraising efforts! The money was raised through The Blair running Christmas shopping afternoons!

All learners & staff enjoyed refreshments & biscuits before the handing over of the cheque!

All at Haysholm thank The Blair for their continued support.

All good things must come to an end!


Day 5, and it was time to say goodbye to Arran and all the wonderful staff at the Arran Outdoor Centre. Before setting sail for home, the adventurers had one final stroll through Brodick and were very pleased to find the chocolate shop!!!!! We then boarded the ferry and waved a final farewell to Arran. Time now to recharge the batteries before back to school on Monday.



Penultimate Arran Post!


Day 4 on Arran started with the adventurers donning their wetsuits again as we canoed from Lamlash pier back to the outdoor centre. PL and DL showed off their paddling skills as we explored Lamlash Bay, taking in the beautiful scenery and being greeted up close by a couple of common seals.

After lunch we enjoyed a bus journey around the island. Among the sites we saw woodcarvings and a Viking longboat in Corrie, PL was thrown in jail at Lochranza castle and saw cormorants drying their wings in Machrie bay.

After dinner we headed down to the beach where we built a fire, toasted marshmallows and walked along the stones where we saw a family of swans.

Another busy and enjoyable day.

Waste Week

Skye class made Maracas from used plastic bottles. This tied in with their Lion King Topic. They then played along to the music.




As part of waste week Skye class started a long term project for the Sensory Garden. We have already begun  collecting bottle tops in the school, but as you can see from the photographs we will need loads more, apart from green 🙂




Arran Class

During ‘ Waste Week’ Arran class have been up cycling using a variety of materials. Darren made a collage of a bus  using  coloured paper and plastic bottle tops. During art at Irvine Royal Academy Gary, Charlie and Joe are in the process of making pictures of the country side with bits of wool and scraps of fleece.

We celebrated ‘World Book Day’  by each pupil choosing their favourite  book from Bourtreehill library. We brought them back to school and took time to explore and listen to our own book and  friends books.
