Easter service

As the weather forecast is predicting rain for tomorrow, we have agreed wtih Yvonne Aitken, our minister, to hold the service at school instead.

Children In Need

Wow what an amazing morning ! First we had P5 assembly which was incredible ! Well done P5  you did a fantastic job although Mr Cain script left a few people wondering but hopefully not too insulted!

After break we had a mini PHAT Friday where we managed to do some crazy activities for Children in Need. We were able to wear our PJ or onesises! However  I think the most excitment was the shaving cream and whatsitis activity suggested by Hannah Kelly from our Citizenship Group. The children had great fun and there were plenty of giggles as poor Mrs Campbell and Mr Cain signed up ! I admire their spirit,  so well done and a huge thanks from the pupils for being game for a laugh !

We raised so far over £378 but Mrs Wilson is still counting!

P7 Camp

We have received a phone call from our happy campers and we expect them back around 3pm.


Just a wee reminder that our PTA AGM will take place on Wednesday 4th September at 7:30pm in the school hall.


ALL welcome!


We are currenlty looking for parents to help with recorder. You do  not have to be musical but  enthusisam is needed! We  have a small group of parents who help out on  a regular basis supporting  pupils in practising  the recorder.

If you are interested please contact Dorothy Ogilvy.

Whole school walk

Please come along to the office and give Catherine your name if you are able to join us on Friday morning.

Can you ensure your child is prepared for whatever the weather may hold.? Preferably  wellies as the path can be a bit muddy and the essential waterproof jacket and hood!

We will be setting off at around 10:45 and the walk should last around 40 minutes.

Food Allergy

Following on from the newsletter advising that we are a nut free zone, I’d like to establish us as a kiwi-fruit free zone as well.  I’d appreciate your support in this – making sure that pupils don’t have kiwi for snack or in their packed lunch.  It is to ensure the health a safety of our pupils.
