Our new school values are teamwork, honesty, respect, confidence and an eagerness to learn.
Strathyre Primary School is a small, rural school in beautiful environs. It was built in 1960 to replace a very old school building, which was the original school. A standing stone which is believed to be a lintel or cornerstone, sits in the playground and is the only remaining evidence of the old school.
We have 44 children and 30 families at present. Our school catchment area encompasses the three communities of Strathyre, Balquhidder and Lochearnhead.
In June 2017, we decanted to temporary accommodation within McLaren High School due to plans for both a refurbishment and an extension. Building work has now finished and we are moving back into our beautiful, new school at the end of December 2018.
We were warmly welcomed by McLaren High School and participated in the many exciting and interesting activities they offered us. Groups or whole classes have taken part in art and craft, cookery, science investigations and a wide variety of sporting opportunities.
Our vision for the children at Strathyre Primary School is to provide opportunities to enable them to be healthy, happy, confident, and to achieve their full potential in a safe and caring environment. I believe that everyone in the school community has a role to play in this vision, and look forward to building on partnerships with parents, the local community and local businesses as well as other agencies that help to support and enrich our children’s education.
We aim is to keep the whole school community informed about all the amazing work we do. Throughout each session we will endeavour to share information from the classroom, whole school activities, curriculum developments and Parent Partnership activities.
I look forward to working in partnership with you to give your child a very enjoyable primary school experience.
