It’s nice to share some feedback, so at a time of so many departures from the norm and the regular school day – we’ve been hearing lots of comments from parents and carers – and the kids themselves to show how much everyone has appreciated the work and the opportunities and festivities throughout December.
Here are some of the comments we have heard. “The Nativity and Christmas Show was wonderful – going back to more of the ‘old model’ for those who remember that far back – when all the pupils are involved”. “It was lovely – big compliments for the lovely singing too”.“The Christmas Service, led by the P7s was one of the best in years. Well done to pupils and Mr Kingsbury.”“The Carol Singing was so lovely”.“What a great idea – hopefully the kids will do that every year – so nice to hear their voices around the village”.“We’ve been really busy but it’s been a brilliant time”.“Everyone has been having fun and doing all the different practising and rehearsing together”.“Xmas lunch was YUMMY and we had loads of fun”. “The Christmas Concert was so good – lovely to hear so many pupils playing music – and the Nursery children had such a lovely time”.“It’s great hearing the kids playing together and they were so much better than I expected!”“Well done to Ms Wilson and the staff – this has been a really special lead up to Christmas for all the children, everyone has had a part to play”.“Parties were REALLY FUN – we should celebrate (Christmas) lots of ways.”
There was also very good feedback from the enthusiastic Lunch Club organisers and user group, following the lovely shared lunch with visiting P6 pupils and teacher, Kayla Smith.
“It was just perfect”. “The children and their teacher just settled right in and made it such a special time. They even all sang Jingle Bells for our Father Christmas visit which happened the same day”.“We would love them to come back – they are welcome any time and they were a credit to the school and their families”.“Haste ye back”.
So, from Parent Council to Staff and Pupils of PPS, a huge WELL DONE!
Merry Christmas to everyone, we hope you have a fabulous festive season – and here’s to lots more wonderful times in 2018!
A huge thank you to all parents, carers, grandparents and friends who came along to sing some Christmas songs with the nursery, P1, P2 and P2/3 this morning and who made it to our Christmas Assembly we hope you are now feeling very festive!
The staff at Pencaitland wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and we look forward to welcoming the children back on Tuesday 11th January 2011.
