Fernhill nursery school pupils are feeling all at sea
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.”
