On Wednesday 18th April, KippenPrimary School opened its door to visitors for its annual Open Afternoon and Daffodil Tea. Displays of work covered corridors and classrooms, and the hall was beautifully decorated with colourful tablecloths and spring flowers. Tea and coffee was accompanied by delicious home baking donated by families and staff.
Visitors were welcomed ‘Under the Sea’ in P1/2 and were transported back to ‘Ancient Egypt’ in P2/3. P4/5 showcased life in ‘Viking Times’, P5/6 went back to the ‘Victorian Age’ and it was all about ‘World War 2’ in P7.
Headteacher Mrs Cassidy commented on how excited the pupils were about sharing the work of their school and thought they did a super job of making our visitors feel welcome.
Some visitors had been pupils at Kippen Primary in the 1930s and had had children at school in the 1950s and 60s. They thought that schools have changed a lot since then! Visitors also enjoyed looking at archives of work and log books from previous years, some dating as far back as 1873!
Visitors gave very positive feedback, liked the exciting range of work across the primary stages and thought it was an informative and enjoyable afternoon. Visitors praised the pupils for being well mannered, enthusiastic and happy.
