Primary 5 Golf

Primary 5 have been learning all about golf with Miss Hunter during PE. We were very lucky to have James, Alan and Alistair come along from Erskine Golf Club to help us learn the basics.

We are looking forward to visiting the Golf Course, which is just along the road from the school, in the new year.

Thanks again for helping us learn a little more about the sport and how to keep active and healthy. Here is a few pictures of our learning.


Christmas Choir to perform at School Fair

We have enough children who have returned forms to enable us to go ahead and perform at the School Fair on Saturday.                             We have our final rehearsal tomorrow (Wednesday) at lunch time – 12.15 in Miss Mackay’s classroom.  It would be good if you bring a packed lunch.                                                                                                                      On Saturday, we will be performing at 2 o’clock for about 20 minutes on the stage.  We will meet at 1.55pm in the P7 cloakroom near the stage.

Hope to see you all tomorrow.                                                                                      Miss Mackay and Miss Cuthill
