  • As part of their Harvest Topic, P1 and P1/2 visited and sang for residents of Kintyre Nursing Home.


  • P7, along with P7 pupils from all South Kintyre schools, watched the Smoke Free Me performance at the Grammar School, as part of their Health and Wellbeing and Science curriculum.


  • Through Active Schools, Alan Wright, a rugby coach, provided a one-off rugby session for P4 pupils. More sessions for P4 are planned after Christmas.  Southern hemisphere rugby, watch out!


  • A number of P3 pupils took part in, and really enjoyed, the Multi-Sports After School club run by Campbeltown Grammar School students, again through Active Schools.


  • The Bibleworld Mobile Resource visited Campbeltown to provide an introduction to the Bible for all pupils in P5 to S1 in South Kintyre, including our P5s, P6s and P7s, as part of their Religious and Moral Education curriculum.


  • West Midlands Children’s Theatre Company now visits Castlehill annually. Their performance of The Apprentice Sorcerer was very popular with pupils this year. The performance is paid for by School Funds.


  • On the same day as the theatre company’s performance, P1 to P3 held their Halloween Parties.

  • At the beginning of November Fiona Irwin took each class through a Sponsored Boot camp, arranged by the PTA. Over £1000 has been raised for Playground equipment. Thanks to Fiona, Catherine McLean and Anne-Marie Blackstock for leading and helping the children through the activities.


  • P6 have been developing their leadership skills through two Buddy Training sessions led by Lindsay Ramsay from Active Schools. They can put their training into practice when helping P1 to P3 children to use the playground equipment and play together at afternoon break times.


  • Four pupils took part in, and represented Castlehill, at the recent Area Swimming Trials at the Aquilibrium.


  • P6 and P7 were asked by the Grammar School to perform two songs at their Remembrance Day event. This followed their excellent work for the Battle of Loos Commemoration Display in September.


  • Last week’s Children in Need events – Beetle Drive, Talent Show and Bring and Buy Sale – raised £794. Thanks to Mrs Watson, Mrs MacKay and Mrs McCormick for organising this year’s events. Well done to the ‘Baby Pipers,’ on being voted winners of the Talent Show. Pupils donated 10p for each vote they made.


  • School clubs have been taking place: Art and Crafts Club for P3, Choir for P3 to P7, Football Club for P4 to P7 and Badminton for P6.
