Our Glee Club have been very busy out and about in the community. As well as performing at the school fayre, they have also been to Tesco, Hansel Village and various nursing homes. They will be going to perform at Ayr Hospital later on in the week. Thank-you to Mrs Hunter and Ms Slider for organising this.
Christmas has finally arrived with the staging of our Nativity “Prickly Hay”. The children really enjoyed learning their lines, songs and fantastic dance moves! Well done to all involved and thank you to the staff for organising this. Thanks also go our our parent helpers, Mrs Lambie and Mrs Henry for helping with the art work.
The Primary 7s from across the Cluster enjoyed a day of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at Belmont High School. This gave them an opoprutnity to make new friends as well as develop their understanding of a variety of STEM skills. The balloon kebabs and marble run proved to be very popular activities.
Thank you to the Parent Voice for organising yet another hugely successful event and to the parents, pupils and staff who supported the event. The total raised was £1200 which will be put back into enriching the pupils’ experiences at Holmston.
To celebrate St Andrew’s Day we invited our families and friends to share our learning about Scottish Culture at the Scottish Showcase. This included social dancing, poetry, songs and lots of Scots Language. I particularly enjoyed finding out about the pirates especially ‘Glaikit Greeting Gary’. We hope this event will feature in the Ayrshire Post soon.
