*Prize Day – Monday 27th June

On Friday we say goodbye to Mrs Taggart who has been teaching P7 during Mrs Smyth’s maternity leave.  We are very sorry to see her go and I would like to thank Mrs Taggart for all her hard work and wish her all the best for the next exciting chapter!  We are delighted that Mrs Taggart will be able to join us on prize day to celebrate P7’s achievements.

P7 Enterprise Day
P7 organised a fantastic enterprise day yesterday.  The other pupils thoroughly enjoyed shopping from the different stalls.  Each P7 had been given a loan of £5 from school to purchase the ingredients/items needed.  Not only did they repay their debts they managed to raise a fantastic £297.09.  Thank you to all those parents who supported this event and to Mrs Taggart and P7 for their hard work.  The money raised will go towards school funds minus a small bonus for P7 to spend on a class party.

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to cancel rounders club for tomorrow.  Pupils should be collected or get the bus home at 3pm – apologies for any inconvenience caused.

School Closures
Please note school will be closed next Thursday 23rd June to facilitate the upcoming EU Referendum.

631 Club
631 Club will run tonight  and tomorrow night at 6.31pm in McCurdy’s Barn (Whitepark Road).  Come along and bring your friends for Bible stories, choruses, quizzes and prizes!

223 Club
The 223 Club Party will take place on Wednesday 23rd June from 2-3pm.  This will be the last 223 Club until September.

Spaces are limited to 30 and preference will be given to pupils who attend 223 Club throughout the year.  If you would like to send buns/goodies for the party please let Moira know.  Could I take this opportunity to thank Sharon, Zaneese and Zara for all their hard work and enthusiasm throughout the year that makes 223 such fun for the children!

Music Exams
Good luck to our 10 pupils sitting their Grade One violin, flute and clarinet exams this Friday – we are really proud of the dedication and improvement you have shown this year!

P1 Open Afternoon
We look forward to welcoming our new P1’s and their parents on Wednesday afternoon.

End of Term
School ends on Thursday 30th June which will be a ½ day for all pupils.  Primary 7 will finish on Monday 27th June after Prize Day.

With the end of term approaching could I encourage each family to have a look around the house and gather up any bits and pieces belonging to school and return these to us.  Don’t worry if you’ve had it for a while – we’ll be delighted to have it back!

Sainsbury’s Active Kids
Final call for Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers – please send any remaining vouchers to school by Friday.

We have placed a number of posters on the front doors advertising various clubs running locally during the holidays.
