Please come along to support our fantastic pupils at our annual Christmas Concert, Monday 17th December at 7pm. Tickets cost £2 for adults and £1 for concessions. Refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you then.
Last weekend Mrs Peters took part in the Social Bite Sleep in the Park Charity event. Here is a message from Mrs Peters:
"Firstly a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored myself and team Houston Kirk.
Secondly thank you for all the messages of support and encouragement.
Sleeping out for the night was a humbling experience. I can’t imagine having to do that every night, one night was hard enough.
We were entertained by bands and heard from people who social bite have already helped each with a very similar story but now have a job, hope and a place to call home.
I’m glad I did it and just want to thank you all again for your support."
Mrs Peters and the Houston Kirk team have raised a tremendous amount of money so far and we wish them all the best for their future endeavours for such a worthy cause.

We have just received the following information about this event:
"We are really sorry to let you know that Saturday’s Paisley Fireworks Spectacular event has been cancelled.
This is due to severe wind gusts and rain forecast for tomorrow and the rest of the weekend, which make it impossible for us to deliver the event safely. We have been monitoring the situation closely and have taken the advice from our display contractor, health and safety and the event advisory group.
Paisley Fireworks is one of the highlights of our event year and we know lots of people will be very disappointed.
We want to give local people and all of our supporters as much time as possible to change their plans and we hope to see everyone back in Paisley on Saturday the 17th for our fabulous Christmas Light Switch On.
Please take care if you are out and about this weekend."
