The outgoing P7’s at Girvan Primary were given a very special send off on Monday 9 June before they head to the Academy after the summer.
That’s because the Parent Council at the school rewarded them for their time at the academy with a plaque with their name on it which will be put up in a corridor in the school.
That means the pupils will be in the school forever and the idea is that a number of plaques will be gathered over the years from each P7 group.
This group were lucky to be the first to receive the plaques with Parent Council chair Elaine Mitchell on hand to present the plaques.
The parent council also came up with the idea of giving each of the pupils a beachball to get their classmates and teachers to sign as they leave the school instead of the ‘tradition’ of getting jumpers signed on the last day.
That seemed to go down well with the kids as they posed for a series of photos.
Plaques were also given to teachers Miss Dungavel and Mrs Allan and classroom assistant Mrs Capaldi as a show of appreciation for their work with the P7 classes this term.
Head teacher Gayle Ferguson praised the P7 year group saying they were great models and had behaved wonderfully over the course of the year. She wished them all the best for moving up to the Academy, though pointed out that there are still three weeks of school to go!
