There is the smell of fresh paint everywhere. Our new classroom furniture has arrived, new flooring completed and we await the arrival of the teaching walls on Wednesday. The new build will be beautiful inside – the rooms are light and and airy and will be a great addition to Craigour Park. This week continues to be busy and if the staff look a little ruffled on Wednesday morning of next week when we welcome back the children – you’ll know why.
Our extension to the school is coming along at a pace. We want to keep everyone up to date with the progress, so we sent out Primary 3 to take some photographs of how it is all coming along. We think it looks great – what do you think?
Well done P3 – we think they look great. Good close observational drawings!
We welcomed Mr Roddy McLean from Hart Construction into our school today. With the beginning of a new senior citizens housing complex starting on January it was perfect timing to deliver a talk and have a discussion on pupil safety in and around building sites. After a most interesting video about the dangers of a building site we had a question and answer session and the message was clear – Stay Out of Building Sites! With the start of this construction adjacent to the school and our own development starting at Easter, the school and its surrounds will be a very busy place and extra care will be needed. We thank you for reinforcing this message at home.
During the construction we plan to have further visits from the developers and design team and we will use this great resource to capture the children’s interest and ensure some of our classroom learning reflects what’s going on around us.
