Jeans for Genes

It was ‘Jeans for Genes Day’ on Friday 23rd September. As a school we supported this fundraising event which raises money for a range of initiatives that improve the quality of life of children affected by genetic disorders. All the staff and pupils were encouraged to pay a pound and ‘Overdo it in Denim’!

logoThe Nursery Class worked very hard visiting the whole school to collect all the money from our friends.

We raised a total of £130.02!

A fantastic effort by everyone. Thank you very much and well done!

Gardening Scotland


Exciting news!
The nursery celebrated great success on Friday when their entry not only achieved a gold rosette in the Gardening Scotland planter competition, but also won second place in the schools category. The theme of the exhibit was Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the children had planted bowls, ‘beds’, and chairs (which were kindly made for us by pupils at Craigroyston Community High School) to represent the main parts of the story. Very well done to all the nursery children and staff for their hard work. Exciting news!
