World Book Day Winners!

We are proud to announce that we have been named runner-up in the third annual World Book Day Award announced today (Thursday 2nd March) on World Book Day. The school was chosen as one of 10 third prize winners for the Award, each winning £1,000 worth of books for our library.

Each year, schools are invited to take part in a creative challenge, which celebrates reading for pleasure – this year picture book giant, Oliver Jeffers and acclaimed fine artist, Sam Winston asked schools to create their own ‘world of stories’ inspired by their new children’s book, A Child of Books, published by Walker Books, who have funded the Award for 2017.

We are the only school in Scotland to win an award this year. Please take a look at our entry under the Creativity tab at the top of the page and tell us about your favourite book too.

The P7 organised this year’s World Book Day events – this included a house quiz, Where’s Wally Hunt and a book swap. It was a huge success.

Civil Engineer Visit – Wendy Pring

This week we had a visit from engineer, Wendy Pring of KCP Environemental who is a Civil Engineer, and the managing director of the company along with her husband. She was inspiring and talked to the pupils about STEM careers that will be around when they are leaving school. Developments like the Spaceport in Prestiwck. She also told us about an engineer in Prestwick who has discovered that he can produce a plastic type cover for packaging out of the 90% waste that comes from shellfish. She also told us about how they are using shredded vehicle tyres mixed with tarmac for road and palypark surfacing. Very inspiring.
