Last Week of Term

As you’ll all be well aware, we’re approaching the end of term with the children finishing for the summer holidays this FRIDAY (29th June) at 12pm.

We have a busy final week to get through first, however. Monday morning sees the Parent Council Prize Giving Assembly taking place, while on Tuesday morning the children will meet the teacher who will be taking their class next year. Our Primary 7 classes will be presenting their Leavers’ Show to parents and carers on Wednesday afternoon and then they have their end-of-school trip to Blair Drummond Safari Park on Thursday. Also taking place on Thursday at 10.30am is the Nursery Graduation. Finally, Friday morning will see the whole school gather to sing and then bid farewell to our departing Primary 7 pupils.

50th Celebrations – Thank you!

cake 50Thanks to everybody who came along to the school to support the events we put on for our 50th Anniversary celebrations.

It was great to have so many visitors attend our anniversary open day, taking the opportunity to view the various pieces of Gylemuir memorabilia which had been unearthed and to see our current pupils’ reflections on the past five decades.


Our very first outdoor concert – the anniversary Proms In The Playground – was also wonderfully well supported by the school community, and the children – and staff – performed brilliantly!

Your support really helped to mark this school landmark in style and is very much appreciated.

Gylemuir 50th Anniversary Concert – “Proms in the Playground”

We’re also lucky enough to have our brass & woodwind players performing for us and there might even be a special treat from some of the older members of our school community…! The Proms will begin at 1.30pm and we’re all hoping for a sunny afternoon!
