During the visit the children will have the opportunity to meet their class teacher and experience some of the activities, which will take place in Primary 1.
Parents/carers will have the opportunity to learn more about the school, which will provide information about your child’s first year.
School Lunch Visit
Pupils are invited to come along for a school lunch on Thursday 11th June at 11am. Due to capacity in the dinner hall we can only accommodate one adult to accompany each child. Pupils and adults will be able to sample our school lunch menu free of charge and see the variety of foods on offer.
Please telephone the school on the above number to confirm you attendance at both induction events no later than Tuesday 9th June.
We look forward to seeing you then.
