Mrs Whitford’s Kirky News

It is a nice change in the weather this week with some of our younger children asking if it is summer now! The weather did not hinder our P7s last week who had a fantastic time at Benmore Outdoor Education Centre, overcoming fears and facing many challenges. A huge well done to them all and to the staff and parents who gave up their time to come along and support them! Our P1s and P2s have had Enjoy-a-ball tasters and Judo, which they have loved. Some of our P6 pupils attended a Cross Country event with other schools yesterday and did themselves proud. There will hopefully be other opportunities for further competitions coming up soon. There was great excitement in the school yesterday when our new Headteacher, Mrs Henderson, started. She has already been into all classes to meet the children and will be going in to observe learning and teaching with three other Headteachers on Thursday as part of our Quality Assurance process.
