The pupils are looking forward to a trip to see The Lion King on the 4th March. The pupils are finding interesting and enterprising ways to help them raise the funds for the trip. So far there has been a Tabletop Sale and a Roald Dahl Day Book Sale and Coffee Morning.
This term, the pupils have each been given a Smartie tube. They are trying to fill it with 20p coins. Full, a Smartie tube holds over £12.00. The pupils are motivated and are thinking of ways to earn the 20p coins.
We would be very grateful to anyone who is willing to save 20ps for us.
Everyone returned to school after a lovely Christmas and New Year holiday. The pupils have all settled back in to work and are having a good 2020 so far.

The children were shocked to find Buddy the elf at the forest when they arrived!!
The official opening of Crawford Primary School took place on Tuesday 26th November. The event was attended by Provost McAllan, councillor, representatives from Education, previous headteachers and the Schools Modernisation Programme, invited guests from community groups and parents.
Mrs Orr, headteacher, opened the celebrations with a speech on how much the pupils, staff, parents and community love their new school. She spoke of the slate project and encouraged new visitors to have a good look around the school. She then introduced the pupils who went on to perform “C’mon, Get aff”. The pupils did a tour of Scotland in their school bus and sang songs from each place they visited. The show was a great success and the singing of the 23 pupils on stage was praised by everyone.
Provost McAllan then did a speech after thanking the pupils. He spoke of the school’s recent HMIe report and talked of some of the activities the pupils have been involved in. He then officially opened the school with the help of George in P7 and Lucy in P1.
The P7 boys George, Callum and Tristan then did the vote of thanks. They spoke very well and with confidence.
Teas and home baking were then enjoyed by all. It was a memorable event and everyone was very proud of the pupils. A day to be remembered for many years.
October 31st saw a weird and wonderful collection of people roaming around the school. They all had a “spooktacular” time at the party.
