It has been an extremely busy month at Netherthird Primary since moving into their new building.

Children have been involved in many special events including STEM Week and Developing the Young Workforce Week. Each class has hosted an open afternoon for parents/carers and welcomed retired members of staff to read a story on World Storytelling Day.

P7 pupils enjoyed a residential trip at Dumfries House where they participated in a range of activities such as team building games, archery, climbing, geocaching, mucky mud trails, a house tour and many more exciting and educational experiences.

P6 have already made excellent use of the garden where they have been planting and growing a variety of crops, learning about composting and working towards the Clean Green Schools Award by focusing on biodiversity.

Plans are in place for all classes to regularly visit in the coming weeks.

The school held its first face-to-face parents’ evening on March 21 where parents were able to have conversations with class teachers, and visit the Information Fayre, where community partners including Universal Credit, Vibrant Communities, Financial Inclusion and Childsmile were able to provide support and Information about their services.
