News from Mr Bewsey
This will be the last newsletter for this school year. I can honestly say that ‘time really does fly’ and what a year it has been. I know that the pupils (and staff) will be ready for the summer holidays. I wish you all a safe and relaxing break and look forward to seeing you in August.
Our P7 pupils will finish their primary school career on Wednesday 29th June. For most of them, they have been at the school for 9 years (including nursery). On behalf of all the staff (past and present), pupils and families, I wish them all the very best as they move on to High School and the next chapter in both their learning and their lives.
Vote of thanks
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff who work so hard to ‘be the best that they can be’ and thus help your children to be the same. Also thank you to all the parents and grandparents who have helped throughout the year with after school clubs, trips and volunteering in school, it is greatly appreciated.
Class composition for August
As a result of some changes to pupil numbers in August, we will be altering the class composition for August. This means that the current Primary 4 pupils will now join Mrs Tharme to make a P5/6/7 class. We will, therefore, have P1/2, P3/4 and P5/6/7.
It was wonderful to be able to host a proper Sports Day with the sun shining and to have so many parents and family enjoying the event. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we trust you did too.
The children enjoyed a fun-filled day at the beach on Wednesday. The weather was kind to us and helped pupils, staff and helpers to have a great end of term celebration.
New school year
The first day of the new term is Tuesday 16th August with an 8.35am start as normal. See you then!

On Tuesday we did our sports day it was really fun and tiring but still good . The next day the whole school went down to the beach for the whole day. There was football on and people played in the stream . When we got back to the school the whole school got a ice lolly. It was a great day. By Alexander and Finlay
This week we had sports day and team Argentinian won, Porto Rico came second. After Tuesday’s sports day we went to the beach and played games, then another school, called Gordon Primary, came down to the beach. The P7s also got a sausage sizzle and mallow fluff, which Sheila made for them.
We all liked making dams and playing in the water.
