Having fun - Thursday 12th January 2017

 

Fun in the Snow

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We all enjoyed having fun in the snow today. It was a new experience for  Daniel Cooke as he had never played in snow before.

Remember on snowy days we need to bring 4 things to school if we want to enjoy being outside.

  1. Wellington boots
  2. A hat
  3. Gloves
  4. A warm coat

P5 -7 Christmas Visit to Prospect Nursing Home

 

On Wednesday 14th December 2016 we went to Prospect and sang a few of our Christmas Carol Service songs. They really liked it and moved to the beat when we sang Rockin around the Christmas Tree.  Our secretary Mrs Hanna was our conductor. After we sang a few songs they took us to the dining room and we got orange juice and a selection box. It was very generous of them.

Sports Day 2016

In this Olympic year the children at Kirkinriola Primary School set a shining example of how fun, team-spirited and enjoyable sport can be. Sports Day 2016 was full of sunshine, smiles and displays of courage, friendship and determination. Thank you to all who attended and added to family fun atmosphere that is so characteristic of our wee school.

Spring Fayre 2016

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This year's Kirkinriola Primary School and Early Year's Spring Fayre was held on Saturday 5th March. We were blessed by beautiful sunshine and a huge turnout of local community support. Our Kirkinriola family was certainly out in force and we are pleased that their hard work was rewarded with the highest fundraising total to date. 

Many thanks to everyone who came along and supported us. Our children will benefit through your kindness and we hope you all had a fantastic day.

Time to Shine

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Time to Shine sessions are now into their second term and the children continue to enjoy a variety of activities on Friday afternoons.

A massive thank you to our parents who continue to offer sewing and craft activities.

The smaller group sizes make the experience much more accessible for all the children and as you can see from the pictures they are all completely focused by these fun projects.

We are looking forward to next Friday already.
