Saturday 17th August was Crawford Gala Day. It was a lovely day, weatherwise, and everyone who attended had a great time.
The Gala Court was:
Queen - Rhiannon Burns
Champion - Callum Henderson
Flower girl - Jorgie Logan
Page boy - Cooper Wilson.
They all took their duties very seriously and did very well on the day.
Pupils and staff all returned back to school after a lovely summer holiday.
The school welcomed 3 new primary one pupils:
A big welcome to these three pupils.They have all settled really well into the school routine.
On the evening of 18th June pupils and staff were invited to a party by Rhiannon and Euan, our P7 leavers. The party was based on the theme of The Greatest Showman. Everyone played games, had some great grub and enjoyed the fun with Rhiannon and Euan. At 8pm all P1-6 pupils left and the P7 pupils then had fun with the staff. The staff were set challenges and depending on how they did, some were subjected to plates of cream in the face. Mrs Wales come off the best!!!!
A great night was had by all.Great memories to treasure for Rhiannon and Euan.
The new P1s came to school for the first time yesterday. Their behaviour has been very good and they liked playing with the other wee ones. We are looking forward to welcome them to the school in August.

P4-7 welcomed Mrs Chris Anderson to school to talk about her job as Practice Manager at Douglas, Rigside and Coalburn doctors. She gave a very interesting talk and it was fascinating to hear about everything she does.
A huge thank you to all our visitors. Our topic has been a huge success and we have loved hearing about all the careers from our visitors.
P4-7 are continuing to welcome visitors to the school to talk about their careers. The pupils have been asking great questions and have been learning lots about a range of careers.
