Confirmation

Our Primary 6 and Primary 7 pupils made their Confirmation on 28th May in St. Columbkille’s Church. As always, the children were an absolute credit to their families, to their school and to their Parish. The children were joined by, Mrs MacDonald, Miss Connor and our very own school choir, we would like to further thank the parents and pupils of the school choir for supporting our Confirmandi on their very special day. We would especially like to thank all the teachers and support staff within the school who supported the children and helped the evening run like clockwork. Well done boys and girls!

First Minister’s Reading Challenge

The First Minister’s Reading Challenge was launched by the First Minister in September 2016, and was targeted initially at pupils in P4-7. It was developed by the Scottish Government and is being delivered on their behalf by Scottish Book Trust. The Reading Challenge was driven by the Scottish Government’s commitment to drive improvement in the attainment gap. We would like to thank all the boys and girls in our school who filled in their reading passports and help us earn our second First Minister’s Certificate. You should be proud of your achievement!!
