Report from Tony Miller – Team Coach
Congratulations to the P6/7 team of boys who triumphed in the Winter Cup final against Kinmylies Warriors on Tuesday evening (19th March). The boys played fantastic football, working as a team and remaining composed in a high tempo match for the Cup. The game ended in a 7-0 victory to Lochardil with lots of stunning goals to celebrate.
What made it even more special was John Robertson and Scott Kellacher coming along to watch the game and present the Cup and medals. Fantastic to see the support from ICT who both commented on how impressed they were with the quality of the game.
A huge well done to all the boys that played in the final match and the preceding rounds of the tournament.
Gavin Thomson, Scott Mackay, Sam Thompson, Ross MacLeod, Sean Kavanagh, Rorie Soden, James Young, Toryn Eaglesham, Ellis Morrison, Michael Miller, Rowan Urquhart.

P6 – Trip to Edinburgh
Thank you to everyone who has responded to our information letter with regards to our upcoming planned trip to Edinburgh. If you have not yet returned your slip, please will you return them tomorrow so that we can confirm our bookings.
Here are some photos of the children busy with their interactive literacy activities and science experiment this week.
In Primary 6/7 we are always looking to find different ways to learn to keep things fun and exciting. This week we have already enjoyed making 3D shape models. We drew the nets of the shapes and wrote facts about each of the shapes before constructing our models.
We also enjoyed a sensory activity linked to multiplication. We had to search in the beads to find four numbers and arrange these to make a multiplication sum. Our partners checked our answers using a calculator.
Pr 7 wish to thank everyone who came along and bought books at the Scholastic Bookfair. We are able to buy some new reading resources for the school with the commission we receive from sales.
