On the last morning of their time as Eyemouth Primary Pupils last week, the school’s P7s gathered with their families and friends to mark the occasion in style.

Pupils shared some of their primary school memories and experiences from nursery to P7 and sang some of the songs they had learned while away on their recent residential experience at Kingswood.

The grand finale was their own composition and ‘The P7 Leavers’ Song’ was given huge applause.

Pupils had worked with Mrs Swain, Mr Bewsey and Mr Williams to produce their song which was accompanied on guitar by Ewan Wilson, Robbie Patterson, Jack Robinson and Grant Maltman.

A number of awards were handed out during the course of the assembly to mark the hard work of the departing pupils.

The Community Centre Shields which are presented each year to recognise contribution to the school and positive attitudes and behaviour were presented by Mrs Fisackerly to Robbie Patterson, Roddy Blackie and Brooke Heary.

The athletics trophies were presented by Mrs Henry to Lewis Middlemiss and Camae Aitchison.

Mrs Reap presented certificates to Roddy Blackie and Cerys Smith for their contribution to the school as Junior Road Safety Officers and Mrs Fisackerly presented Selina Scott, Arran Middlemiss and Grant Maltman with certificates to recognise their valuable support as Toe by Toe Coaches. In addition all P7s were awarded certificates by Laura Sim, Miss Smith and Mrs Swain for their various achievements when they participated in the residential at the start of June.

To round off their last night of school, pupils enjoyed a special BBQ despite having a downpour in the middle!

The Friends of Eyemouth Primary School provided the food and helped with the cooking and staff and pupils would like to thank them for their efforts.
