There’s regular shouts of “ship ahoy” at the Fern­hill School nurs­ery.

The young­sters were de­lighted when the school’s PTA gen­er­ously agreed to pro­vide the nurs­ery with a tremen­dous pirate ship for their out­door play­ground.

The ship is a wel­come ad­di­tion to their al­ready stunning out­door space, set in nine acres of wood­land.

Speak­ing of the new ad­di­tion to their gar­den, Mary Frances Gal­lacher, de­pute head of nurs­ery, said: “The pirate ship is a fab­u­lous plat­form for imag­i­na­tive play and is prov­ing a big hit with the chil­dren who have al­ready sailed to Mill­port and Ire­land and are look­ing for­ward to trav­el­ling fur­ther afield in the com­ing weeks and months.”

Fern­hill School nurs­ery is in part­ner­ship with South La­nark­shire Coun­cil and of­fers wrap around care for chil­dren aged two-to five-years-old.

There were more smiles for boys and girls from Fern­hill School, when they had a won­der­ful day as they re­ceived the Sacra­ment of First Holy Com­mu­nion at St. Mark’s Church re­cently.

Cel­e­brated by Fa­ther Alex Ste­wart, the school chap­lain, the ser­vice was en­joyed by the chil­dren and their fam­i­lies.

Mrs Dunn, their class teacher, said: “We are very proud of our pri­mary four boys and girls who were a credit to our school, their par­ents and them­selves. We wish them ev­ery suc­cess as they con­tinue their spir­i­tual jour­ney.”

All aboard Fern­hill School nurs­ery have thanked the PTA for pro­vid­ing them with a pirate ship for their out­door play­ground (above)
