Crossing Patrol - Ralston Road


I would like to remind you of the letter issued to all parents on the last day of school before the October holiday advising that the crossing patrol will not be manned for a temporary period from today while the recruitment process is being completed. Please be aware of this and of the council’s advice that ultimately the responsibility to ensure safe passage of children to and from school lies with parents / carers.



Campbeltown Nursery Car Park


Campbeltown Nursery car park can be very busy with traffic at the start and end of the school and nursery day. We would be grateful if, as well as avoiding the busy areas around the school, you could avoid using the Nursery car park if your children do not attend the Nursery to reduce the volume of traffic and to prevent risks to the safety of the nursery children.



Water Bottles


We encourage children to drink water during the school day. Please ensure your child has their own water bottle in school.



Updated Calendar


An updated calendar of pupil events is available here. We will provide further details of the events separately when appropriate.



Halloween Parties


Please note that P1 to P3 will be holding Halloween Parties during the afternoons of these days:


Classes P1 and P2Friday 28th October

Classes P2/3 and P3Monday 31st October

Pupil Council


Congratulations to the pupils who were chosen by the pupils and teachers in their classes to be the Pupil Council representatives for this session.



Parent Council and PTA


A joint meeting of the Parent Council and PTA was held in September. Minutes of the meeting are available from the school office or here. There will be another joint meeting at 7.00 pm on Monday 21st November. The meetings are open for all parents and carers to attend and we always welcome new members and new ideas.



Open Evenings


Open evenings will be held in the classrooms this term as follows:


Wednesday 9th November 3.30 to 4.30 pm

Wednesday 16th November 6.00 to 7.00 pm


Please visit your child’s classroom at either of these times to meet your child’s teacher and to see the work they have been doing so far this term.



Scholastic Bookfair


The Scholastic Bookfair will be in school during the Open Evenings. It will also be open for parents and children between 3.15 and 3.45 pm in the Gym Hall on Thursday 10th and Friday 11th November. The children will have an opportunity to browse (but not buy) books with their classes during the day on Wednesday 9th November.
