World of Work Week
On week beginning 19th March, Kirkton Primary are having a World of Work Week. During this time, the children will get the opportunity to learn about a range of jobs and consider the skills/ qualifications they will need for each. We are looking for any volunteers to come in and speak to the children about their jobs. If you are able to spare some time to come in and get involved, please contact Mrs Smith by phoning the school or email: We would really appreciate your help!

The timetable is filling up very quickly! If you would like to come in, please return your forms by Wednesday 14th March. Mrs Smith will send out a letter at the end of the week to let you know the date, times and which classes you will be visiting. It looks like it is going to be a very interesting week at Kirkton Primary!

Make Your £1 Grow!
As part of World of Work Week, P5,6 and 7 have been given £1. This is part of an enterprise project to allow them to have the opportunity to start a business and understanding how to make a profit. Each child was given £1 on Friday 9th March. All profit should be handed into school on Friday 23rd March. Each class will get to keep their profit and decide how they would like to use it. Good luck everyone!

Snow Patrol
Over the weekend, a group of parents/ carers, children and volunteers came to Kirkton Primary with their shovels and cleared the snow from the school grounds. On behalf of all the children and stafff, we would like to say a big thank you to all those who helped with this effort. We are very lucky to have such wonderful parents/ carers, children and members of our Kirkton community who are always ready to lend a helping hand. Great job everyone!


This week is the start of our newly trained P5 playground buddies (PALs), going out each playtime and lunchtime to lead some organised games. The rota will be revised next week to allow for the buddies to continue attending lunchtime clubs and enjoying their MUGA slot with the rest of their class.

Cross Country
Cross Country was cancelled this week due to the state of the racecourse following the adverse weather. It is provsionally rescheduled for the 20th March. We will confirm this as soon as possible.

Extra Curricular
This week, P1-3 will begin a 3 week mini programme of Taekwon- Do with a specialist teacher. This will run from Tuesday 6th - Tuesday 20th March. Please ensure your child has their PE kit on those days. P1 - 3 Morning Multisports Club is in full swing. The 'Girl's Club' is also now running on Tuesday lunchtimes.

Parents Night
This will take place on Thursday 22nd March. More information to follow.

Nurture Room
We are making the small Visiting Services room into a nurture room, as a safe, calming place pupils can come to if they need to. In order to do this, we are looking for some help from the school community to gather items we need to make it the best space it can be. If you had a Christmas clear out and came across any of the following, please hand it in to the office or Mrs Smith. We are  still looking for:
  • Action figures, animal figures etc
  • Any Playmobil (or something similar) - figures, houses, garages, furniture
  • Lego of any kind
  • Vehicles - toy cars, police vans, fire engines etc
  • Jigsaws/ board games etc
  • Materials
Thank you for your continued support.
