P7 Transfer Ceremony on PhotoPeach
Tonight was our traditional Primary 7 Transfer Ceremony. All the pupils looked incredibly smart in their shirt and ties as they filed in to take their seats at the front of the hall. Mr Barnes began by speaking about seven Olympic values and how the current year group had embodied these values. Miss Skinner, Mrs Macniven and Mr Barnes presented the books to each of the pupils. The Primary 7 choir gave a moving Proclaimers medley while several pupils told of their memories of Mr Barnes. A highlight of the evening was some of the comments by made the Primary 1 buddies about their perceptions of the Primary 7s- whether girls or boys made the best paired readers, whether if was worth going to Loch Insh if there was a possibility you could fall off the bus and whether all the fun trips in primary 7 made up for the fact that they did not get to use the Playbase! Next was the vote of thanks from the Primary 7s, acknowledging all the people who help them on a daily basis. Afterwards Mr Sutherland spoke about his expectations and hopes for the next part of their educational journey. Finally while the parents were invited to have tea and coffee in the dining room, the Primary 7s escaped to their area to have a well deserved treat and examine their new books!
Well done Primary 7- I know all your teachers are very proud of you and wish you every success as you move forward to the HIgh School (seven weeks tomorrow as Mr Sutherland reminded you!).
