Primary 1 Induction Visits 2019

Official induction days for all new St Catherine’s pupils will be held at 1.30pm-2.30pm on 15.5.19 and 22.5.19. By the end of these sessions you should have all of the information you need and your child will have spent quality time with their new teachers and classmates. We offer an optional additional stay and play session at 11am on 29.5.19. Our P7 buddies will take the children out to play allowing them to experience a playtime whilst our parents are mingling over tea and coffee. If you have any questions regarding this please do not hesitate to contact myself.
