Graffiti Project 2018

In a primary school not far from here, there was a playground wall that needed sprucing up….Tosh to the rescue!!

What the kids said:

It was fun to do the background because you got to do whatever you wanted.  When we did the blue background it made it really stand out.  I liked being part of it because I love graffiti to look at.  I feel proud of myself and glad I got to do this project.

I think the wall is a great thing and I feel really happy I got to do it.  The wall looks a lot better than it did before.  If we could I wish Tosh would come back again to help us do the other wall.

It was really fun and I wish he could come back again.  I liked doing the background and it was fun when we got to do whatever we want all over the place.  It fun being in a little group because we usually do things as a class or the whole school.  I liked being part of a little group instead.  It was just brilliant in general.

 

Our project was topped off with a visit to Shred skate park in Ayr.

South Ayrshire Consultations

South Ayrshire Council is asking people what they think of proposals to change how new primary 1 pupils initially attend their school.

At the moment, they go to school for morning sessions only until the first Monday in September, however parents and carers say that a growing number of children are used to being in nursery part of the day, and for some the full day.

With this in mind, the Council is proposing that children starting Primary 1 in August 2018 attend school for the full day from the start of the new school term. As this is a change to what’s taken place in previous years, the Council wants to know what the public think of the proposal.

To have your say visit www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/consultations and fill in the short survey before 11 May 2018.
