Due to restrictions this year, our primary 7s have missed out on a few activities that they would normally have taken part in and enjoyed. To make up for this, we are planning three days of fun activities for them in school.
Thank you for your continued contributions.
Due to COVID restrictions, Primary 7 are currently unable to participate in our traditional Primary 7 excursions. As a result, we are planning to provide 3 days of fun filled activities and special experiences for the primary 7 pupils. We will be having a raffle to help raise funds for this and some of our local businesses have very kindly donated some amazing prizes. Thank you to all of them for their generosity.
Thank you for your continued contribution.

A transition event for P7 pupils will take place in St. Andrew’s Academy on Monday 22nd June. P7 pupils will then have an opportunity to attend a session in St. Peter’s on Tuesday 23rd June.
On both days, sessions will last for approximately an hour and a half, and parents/carers will be required to drop off and collect their child.
You will be notified of your child’s allocated time as soon as possible.
Please contact the school if your child has any underlying health conditions.
Congratulations to Taylor McPherson in P7 who won the schools annual Christmas Card design competition.
Taylor had a great afternoon on Saturday at the Paisley annual Christmas Lights Switch-On event. After riding in Santa’s Sleigh in the procession, she helped to switch on the town’s Christmas Lights.
Our Coding club kids spent a great day yesterday at West College Scotland participating in a Mini Game Jam. The children were asked to design a game in a short space of time based on a given theme which they were only told at the start of the day. The theme was Space and our two teams created two very different games.
Thanks again to Dr Amanda Ford and her team for providing the opportunity for the kids.
Please read all about what the children will be doing in term 1.
Yesterday some of our P6 and P7 boys and girls took part in the Renfrewshire Schools Cross Country in Renfrew. Well done to all who took part on such a blustery day. It was great to see our pupils cheering each other on.
Thank you again to our parent helpers for their support.
Getting ready to go:
We’ve done it! Some of us look a lot happier than others!:
P7 have recently taken part in some stitching workshops provided by The Paisley Thread Museum. For 3 weeks in January, Stephen, Maureen and Christine visited the school to teach the children some of the history of cotton in Paisley. The children then took part in a stitching workshop. They created a design on a bobbin shape and used an embroidery hoop and some basic stitches to embroider their design.

Tickets will be priced at 50p for each and you can purchase as many as you would like. Many thanks for your continued support.
