Some of our older pupils were busy today creating our beautiful display of poppies across our school gate to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Pupils and staff all made a poppy for the display which I am sure you will agree looks stunning. Thank you to everyone for sending in the empty plastic bottles for us over the last couple of week and a very special thank you to Mr Donaldson who drilled all the holes in the poppies so we could attach them to the gate.
P6 are preparing for the annual Christmas Fayre, which will take place in school on Wednesday 28 November 2018 from 1800 until 2000.
As usual, we will have lots of Christmas crafts for sale and fun games to play. We are currently looking for items that would be suitable for our Tombola stall and will be asking for donations of your delicious home baking nearer the time. If you have any Tombola items, please send them to Mrs Strange or Miss Wilson in P6.
Thank you for your continued support.
