Children will read all about it
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.
