With our residential visit to Benmore due to take place in September planning is underway.
Over the next few days please look out for an email indicating the balance now due for payment. Several families have been in touch requesting financial assistance. Please do get in touch if this is something you wish to discuss.
Pupils have been issued with a KIC form – this needs to be completed and returned to school as soon as possible.
Attached is a suggested clothing list
A meeting will take place in school on Tues 23rd August at 6.00pm to share arrangements and answer any questions.
In the meantime please do check out the Benmore website and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.
One more sleep to the performance of Colour Our World! I hope you are looking forward to what, I am sure, will be a great evening. We have got everything crossed that there will be no rain and no wind but given we can’t control the weather please do dress to be sitting outdoors in whatever comes our way. The show will go on!
Tues 24th – tickets will be issued. Please note it is one ticket per child – the ticket will indicate how many people it will admit. Any mistakes simply give us a call or drop us an email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Wed 25th– stage, lights and sound system being set up in the fenced area at the back of the school from 8.00am.
P7 and P6 pupils are asked to arrive at school by 6.00pm.
The gates to the ‘festival’ will open for ticket holders from 6.10pm. Entrance will be from the park. Our P6 front of house helpers will be on hand to meet and greet and sell refreshments and souvenirs. Payment is by cash only – look out for the payment stations where you will swap cash for tokens. The tokens can then be used at the stalls.
There will also be an opportunity to have a look at the fabulous personal projects completed by our P7 learners. Toilets will be available in the main school building.
The show will begin at 7.00pm
This is the first (and might be the only!) time that we have put on our P7 show outdoors so please do bear with us if things are not quite as smooth as we would hope. The staff and children have put huge amounts of effort into the evening and I am so incredibly proud of them all.
As you are aware the P7 show ‘Colour Our World’ is taking place on Wed May 25th at 7.00pm. Gates will open from 6.10pm for the audience.
Our P6 learners provide incredible support for the show by producing tickets, organising refreshments, making souvenirs etc as well as being the choir on the evening. It is a great opportunity for them to be a part of this in preparation for their own P7 show.
I am really hoping that all P6 learners will be able to come along on the evening. We are in the process of allocating jobs – entrance gate, selling refreshments, taking people to seats – and rehearsing the songs. T shirts for P6 have been designed and are currently being printed. On the evening these should be worn along with black leggings or trousers. P6 should arrive at school for 6.00pm if possible.
P6 parents and carers are very welcome to purchase tickets through Parentpay. It has always been a great evening in the past and I have no doubt that this year will be the same.
I am delighted that our out of school visits will be starting up again after the Easter holidays with P6 going to Hillend to ski or for outdoor learning. Please complete on parentpay if you haven’t yet done so.

We have had a few queries regarding the HWB census that all schools have been asked to carry out. Please see the link below for further information. We have also added a tab onto our school website where you can see FAQs etc. It is hoped that completing the survey will not cause any undue anxiety. It has been designed for primary pupils and is being used across the country.
