Our weekly Shared Reading Project involving the pupils, parents and grandparents of Pr. 1 is going from strength to strength every week. The children are enjoying the experience of welcoming a family member into school and reading together. Our slideshow captures why reading for enjoyment is so important.
The junior and senior department were delighted to welcome an array of new fiction texts to add to their class libraries. Many thanks to Mrs.Fraser who spent a great deal of time making sure the chosen books will encourage our children to read for enjoyment. Most of the books purchased appear on Nicola Sturgeon’s Reading Challenge list. We are thankful to all parents who purchased books are our two previous Book Fairs as the books are purchased with the commission from sales.
Here is a slide show of the festivities last night. Thanks once again to our wonderful PTA ladies who went to such a great effort to ensure such a successful night.
A great night had by all!! Many thanks to our wonderful PTA!!!!!!

The Catholic Church in Scotland encourages schools, parishes and other agencies to work closely together in order to celebrate the successes of Catholic education particularly during one week each year. The purpose of Catholic Education Week is to highlight the significance of education, not only for young people but for society as a whole. Students, parents, teachers and others are asked to reflect on their own roles in the education process – at home, in school, in the local parish and in other educational settings.
This year’s theme is “Developing as a community of faith and learning.”
“What makes the Catholic school distinctive is its attempt to generate a community climate that is permeated by the Gospel spirit of freedom and love.”
The school community hope that you and your family enjoyed a lovely mid-term break and feel refreshed for a return to school. Today was an in-service day across the authority and involved school staff reviewing current practice and planning for future developments. Today we had a visit from BT Barefoot who gave a presentation on computer science and how to develop this within the curriculum. Staff had the opportunity to review the online resources. Later we had a highly informative presentation by Speech and Language Therapists who are currently working in partnership with the school to develop pupil speech, language and communicatin skills. This week is a short week but a busy one as always. Thursday evening we have our Valentine’s Disco and we also launch Catholic Education Week.
