Chil­dren will read all about it

Ayrshire Post - - Festive Fayre - Stu­art Wil­son

The chil­dren at Kirk­michael Pri­mary and nurs­ery were the ex­tremely lucky re­cip­i­ents of some fab­u­lous new re­sources.

This was made pos­si­ble by the gen­eros­ity of Rab White and Tracey Cap­stick, who un­til re­cently ran a Youth Club in the vil­lage.

Un­for­tu­nately this folded but all in­volved were keen that the younger mem­bers of the com­mu­nity ben­e­fit­ted from the money that was left from Youth Club fundrais­ing.

The boys and girls got on their think­ing caps and de­cided that re­sources for wet play­times as well as ad­di­tional books for the li­brary would be their pri­or­ity.

Rab him­self came along to present the good­ies to the chil­dren who thought Christ­mas had come early.

Head Teacher, Liz Can­dlish, said that this ex­tremely gen­er­ous gift was very much ap­pre­ci­ated by ev­ery­one in school and that every­body who had been in­volved with the youth club de­served a huge thanks.

• And the chil­dren have also been en­joy­ing a food tech­nolo­gies pro­gramme with in­put from the Home Cook School.

The pupils planned, pre­pared and hosted a Hal­loween themed Com­mu­nity Af­ter­noon Tea.

They wel­comed fam­ily, friends and com­mu­nity to en­joy a tasty menu of treats and pro­vided en­ter­tain­ment.

Head Teacher, Ms Can­dlish, said the ini­tia­tive which was made pos­si­ble by fund­ing from Ed­u­ca­tion Scot­land, gave the pupils an op­por­tu­nity to learn and ap­ply a huge range of life­long learn­ing skills in a real life con­text.
