Catrine Primary School recently performed two shows to a sell-out crowd on both nights.

The Primary 1 to Primary 3 pupils presented ‘A Christmas Cracker’ – a wonderful mixture of Christmas songs, poems and jokes with some songs signed in British Sign Language.

Primary 4 to Primary 7 pupils performed ‘Straw and Order’ – an updated version of the Nativity story, told from the perspective of the animals in the stable.

All pupils sang beautifully and audience members agreed that it was a great Christmas event.

News from Catrine PS


The parent council very kindly donated two £20 vouchers for Smyth’s Toy Store to the school. Every pupil’s name was entered with the two winning names being pulled out of the hat at the Christmas Service – Hannah Mackenzie in P1 and Connor Sneddon in P3/4. We’re sure Hannah and Connor will have great fun spending their vouchers during the Christmas holidays, and thanks to the parent council for their continued support.


Lots of pupils entered a Christmas Poem competition, sponsored by Arnold Clark.

Lauren and Karen from Arnold Clark came to our school to present our winners with their wonderful prizes.

1st – Khyla Shaw in P7

2nd – Lucy Nangle in P7

3rd – Paige Coughtrie in P7

Congratulations to the winners.
