Roald Dahl Day – 13th September

Image result for roald dahl imagesThe children – and staff – had great fun celebrating Roald Dahl Day today. To mark the author’s birthday everybody had a chance to come to school with their clothes on backwards (in honour of Esio Trot!) or dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl book character.

We had some very impressive Charlies, Matildas, Mr Twits and even Mrs Horne dressed up as Willy Wonka!

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.

And then…Image result for summer clipart
