As a former P7 pupil said we are “A small school with a big heart!” Our school community is proud of this statement and live up to it daily.

A massive ‘THANK YOU’ to all who came along to Primary 2/3’s Fun Run and Toy Stall to help raise money for Water Aid. It was a fantastic opportunity to share the children’s learning and a great finale to our Water project. The event managed to raise a whopping £140 – well done Primary 2/3!

Open Morning

We would like to invite you to our Open Morning on Friday 2nd September. Families are welcome in school between 11.00am and 12.00noon.

We will gather in the hall for the launch of the new school website.

You will then have the opportunity to ‘Meet the Teacher’ and to find out a bit about what your child will be doing in the class over the next year. Each teacher will share information about the organisation of their class and key dates. Your child will act as tour guide of their classroom and the rest of the school. There will a quiz for you and your child to participate in based on the new school website so bring your smart phones and tablets. Teachers will be on hand to answer any general questions.

Mr Stephen Rafferty, DHT at Craigmount High School will be at the event to have a chat with the P7 parents.

Teas and coffees will be available in the hall throughout the hour.

Games @the Hub

P6/7 enjoyed a lovely sunny day at Forrester/St. Augustine’s High School for Games at the Hub where the group split into two groups for hockey and football. For the first half of the day, the children rotated around different activities to build up their skills, and then after lunch took part in a tournament.  No trophies this year but a great opportunity to keep fit and to meet children from other schools.
