Consultation on the South Ayrshire Children’s Service Plan

In South Ayrshire, we are keen to hear the views on what’s important for children and families to help us to develop South Ayrshire’s Children’s Service Plan. This will help support joint working to enable children in South Ayrshire to be safe, healthy, achieve, nurtured, active, respected, responsible and included.

Services have been working together to identify what they see as the main priorities to focus on and we would like parents and carers to have their say by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CWNRQZ8 

Please note the consultation will only take place between the 13th and 22nd February 2017.

To request the survey in another format contact the Council on 0300 123 0900

Community tree planting

This year the Woodland Trust offered over 4,000 free tree packs to schools, communities and youth groups across the UK.  Our ECO Committee applied for 210 trees and initially planned to plant them around the school perimeter to create a colourful hedge, with the intention of attracting even more birds and wildlife to our school grounds.  However, on this occasion, the ECO Committee reconsidered planting at the school and decided to plant the trees in the community for everyone to enjoy.

Last week the delivery arrived, a mixture of species Rowan; Dogwood, Hazel, Hawthorn, Cherry and Silver Birch.  Luckily each bundle of plants were colour coded to help identify the different species.  Bamboo supports and tree protectors were also provided for each tree sapling.  All of the P6 and P7 pupils, Andy and Helen Guthrie green-fingered residents of Dunure, Mrs McDowell, Elaine Gibson and Linda Izatt all rolled up their sleeves, got digging and successfully planted the tree saplings at the far end of Kennedy Park………. why not go along to Kennedy Park to check out the trees, you will find them along the full length of the fence, behind the farthest away football post or check out the photos:
