Scottish SPCA #fireworkSafety

You may remember that we recently invited all schools in Scotland to take part in our #FireworkSafety competition to raise awareness of how to #BeSafeBeKindBeSmart in the lead up to Bonfire Night.

We were delighted to receive over 350 entries from schools across Scotland. There were so many fantastic entries that it was incredibly difficult to pick just two winners.

Congratulations to…… Layla C from Lawmuir Primary School and St Modan’s High School’s autism provision class!





Polite reminder



A wee polite reminder if your child/children are off sick we completely understand. Unfortunately we need to understand quickly who is absent / reason and if we have any missing children.

We would ask all parent’s/carers  to proactively contact the school either via Email   or call 01875610275 we have an answering machine that is available.

On Tuesday the 19th of July (10.00am-10.45am) and Thursday 21th of July 2022 we will be hosting a stay and play session in the school playground. This will be a chance for your child to play and meet with other P1 pupils, children who attend SWPS Nursery will be attending these sessions. If unfortunately the weather doesn’t look great please keep a look out for Twitter updates from the nursery team, we will attempt to email out to all parents also. The Nursery team do have access to a mobile number in the holidays, if you have any questions about the stay and play session, please call 07718662056* as you can imagine, staff are with the children so it may not be answered, if this happened please leave a detailed voicemail and someone will contact you, when they can.
