Christmas Puds

Published by under Notices

I have had a few families enquiring after my crochet Chrismas puds, sold in aid of Great Ormond Street a couple of years ago.  I have made 10 and they will be in the school office from tomorrow at £3 per pud, all money going to Great Ormond Street.

I may be able to produce a few more this week, if they sell out please leave a little note of interest and I will try to make sure you are able to buy one before Friday.

Many thanks, Miss Hutchison.

Can you lend a rug for the play?

Published by under Notices

I am so grateful to the many parents who have supported the P4-7 play by providing props, costumes and scenery. Everything I have asked for on this website has been lent to us! I now have one final request: I’m looking for a rug, or old piece of carpet, to cover an area of staging about 8 feet long and 4 feet wide. Only one child walks on it, and is wearing slippers, so we won’t be letting a herd of elephants trample across it! Please get in touch quickly if you can help – the performance is on Monday. Thank you,

Urgent need for a sheet of plywood

Published by under Notices

P4-7 now have nearly all items of scenery in place. We are using two benches to provide the support for our stage apron, but we need a sheet of ply to lie across them, eg a sheet of 8 by 4, or even 6 x3 at a push. 12 mm thickness would be ideal, but we could get a way with 10mm. Has anyone got a sheet we can borrow? Thanks,

A worried director

Christmas Fair

Published by under School news

The fair on Saturdays was a great success! We kicked off (if you’ll excuse the sporting pun) with Verne Cotter turning on the lights on the village Christmas tree. The gingerbread houses were amazing as you’ll see the slideshow below, and the hall was packed. We are very grateful to the Parent Council for organising the event. Thanks also to all the individuals and organisations who provided raffle prizes, for the traders who took tables, and for everyone who took part.

Our Christmas Tree

Published by under School news

This year two of our P7 pupils went with Mrs Darrie to choose a Christmas tree for the school. They carried it in and then the other children in P7 helped to decorate it. It looks great when the lights are turned off in the library!

Can you help with staging?

Published by under Notices

OK, it’s another request!

Owing to the small size of the stage in the hall, we need some raised staging for the opening scene in the P4-7 production. A height of 30-45 cm would be about right, with a width of 2-3 metres and a width of about 1.5 metres. Big sheet of ply on supports? Wooden boxes covered in a sheet of hardboard? I wonder if any of our parents might have something suitable lying in a barn? Our dress rehearsal is on Friday if it would be possible to arrange something before then. Many thanks!

Further items needed for P4-7 play

Published by under Notices

We are really grateful for the amazing repsonse to the appeal for props and costumes! We still need an old steering wheel if any one can help out. We are also looking for:

  • a tall plinth eg plant stand, column – basically something with a flat top and a small footprint about a metre high
  • a black tie
  • an old DVD player/video player
  • a low table for a TV
  • another old keyboard!

Is anyone good at stage makeup/face paints and free on Monday 15th?

Thanks for all the support!

Mr Devereux

Raising the flag for Scotland

Published by under School news

This afternoon during our assembly we went outside to raise our saltire. We have a brand new flag which was kindly donated by the Scottish Saltire society. Following an annual tradition, the flag was raised by our youngest and oldest pupil. Mrs Darrie, our resident knots and ropes specialist, kept a beady eye on things. We’re glad to report that everything ran smoothly – we had lovely weather and a decent wind to set the flag fluttering.
