Scottish Taster Open Afternoon

We held a wonderful open afternoon to celebrate all that is Scottish. We supported local business, sampled local produce and enjoyed some Scottish entertainment.  We really are a small school with a massive heart and are passionate about community involvement, this was a great event to open our doors and welcome everyone in!  Visitors could browse the classrooms, visit the food fayre and enjoy entertainment from our young people.

We had food donations from  some local small businesses:

Davie McKay

Deli sh

Broun’s Bistro

Doonfoot CO-OP

The whole afternoon was a great display of community involvement and sharing a wealth of local produce with our young people.

What the kids said….

Ailsa

  • I liked it because I like the Irn Bru and the shortbread.
  • I liked it all.
  • I enjoyed all the parents coming in.
  • I loved drinking the Irn Bru and trying out the haggis crisps, with the cheese it was delicious.
  • I tried haggis crisps and honey. I liked that people from the community came to our Scottish taster.
  • I loved the shortbread.
  • I didn’t like the fact I didn’t notice the tattie scones! I liked singing the song.
  • I found it very stressful pouring the Irn Bru. I loved the honey, especially the one in the middle. In the beginning I was afraid to do my speech but after I read it I felt a weight had been pushed off.

  • Yesterday we tried new food. I liked the Irn Bru
  • At our Scottish taster afternoon I showed my mum what I had been making in the class and I tried the haggis bon bons.
  • I liked everything because I liked how you could make stuff, I really like the square sausage and I like how eve was playing the bagpipes.
  • I liked the haggis balls and I liked the shortbread.
  • I liked when E and P did their reply fae the lassies. It was funny and she made a funny poster.
  • I really enjoyed all the speeches and listening to the toast to the lassies. I likes saying the reply as well. I really liked the wee ones poems because they were really cute saying them. I think it worked much better than the normal Burns supper that we have because the younger ones don’t like sitting down so long. I liked that people could go round the classes and go to the hall to try new foods. It had a relaxed welcoming feel.

Big Scottish Breakfast

The Pupil Council organised a scrumptious morning with our friends and families. We enjoyed a Big Breakfast together with fruit salad, yogurt, toast, cereal, fruit juice, milk and pancakes all on the menu.  A big thanks to our supportive parents for all the food donations and the money we’ll be sending to the STV Children’s appeal. 

I liked sitting with my mum and eating breakfast because she normally has breakfast once I’m at school. 

I enjoyed eating my pancakes.  I was happy they got toasted by Mrs Hamilton.

I liked sitting with my friends and chatting.  I especially liked the jam and the juice. 

I liked having toast because i don’t normally have toast. 

I enjoyed having new combinations of food….. toast, butter, fruit and yogurt was delicious.  

I enjoyed sitting with my friend’s parents. 

I tried new cereal and I really enjoyed it.  I’m going to ask my mum to buy some. 

I liked trying new food with honey. 

I liked helping the nursery eat their food. 

We hope the money raised goes to help children in poverty.

One week was all about SLIME!!!

We worked in our houses and took turns when we were making the slime.  We wrote down slimey words.  Finally, we made a big slime 30 as part of Mrs Martin’s birthday celebrations.
