Golden days for school stu­dents

Campbeltown Courier - - LETTERS -

Af­ter the summer break of sun­shine and in­evitable show­ers, Kin­tyre’s chil­dren re­turned to school this week.

Some were ea­ger to re­turn to the nor­mal­ity of their timetabled week and their friends, while oth­ers were sad to be say­ing good­bye to their free­dom, of days spent tak­ing part in Kin­tyre’s many ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer.

For some, it was a com­pletely new ex­pe­ri­ence. P1s started at six of Kin­tyre’s pri­mary schools, and many chil­dren moved from pri­mary to sec­ondary school at the Gram­mar.

Along with a fresh set of stu­dents, Camp­bel­town Gram­mar School started the school year with a new uni­form.

The chil­dren re­ally do look smart, with shirts, ties and op­tional blaz­ers.

The S1s em­bark­ing on their Gram­mar School jour­ney must be ex­cited about be­ing a part of his­tory.

Not only are they the first new starts to wear the out­fit, but they will also be the first in the cor­ri­dors of the new school, set to open in Fe­bru­ary 2018.

May the days ahead for Kin­tyre’s young peo­ple be as golden as the stripe on their new ties.
