We were delighted to hear that both Scotlandwell in Bloom and Kinnesswood in Bloom achieved Gold in their recent Take a Pride in Perthshire evaluations. The work Kinnesswood in Bloom did with the school’s Community Committee on Ryder Cup figures is being considered for an award at the time of writing so we are looking forward to hearing about that and we can’t wait to see the pictures our P7s completed of golfers before the summer being used as a poster to go up in the train or bus stations in Perth to welcome people to the Ryder Cup.
As part of the Ryder Cup celebrations we have teamed up with Bishopshire Golf Club to offer our older pupils (P3-7) a chance to go to the club and practice golf. Mr Ainsworth will be leading these sessions as the children’s PE this day. No permission slips will be issued as this is covered by the generic permission for walks in the village. Please ensure your child brings a coat to school on Friday for walking there and back. We would appreciate any volunteers who are able to support with walks to and from the clubhouse to let us know if they are able to help. This would be from approx. 9.45 am until lunch time.
