One of our P4 pupils, Lennox Greig, won an in-school competition for a painted design for a replica model of a Kelly’s Cat.  The original Kelly’s Cats used to be a decoration on the Union Terrace Bridge in Aberdeen.  This year schools were invited to decorated a replica model to be displayed at the Aberdeen City Start Awards Ceremony.  The models had to reflect a Hollywood theme.  Lennox has designed our model to be Captain America.

All the cat designs from across Aberdeen City will be on display at Marischal College from Wednesday 5th to Wednesday 19th June.

The Lord Provost of Aberdeen will be choosing a winner for “best design” and the school of the chosen cat will receive an award at the Star Awards ceremony on Thursday 20th June at the Beach Ballroom.

As a school we have our fingers crossed that Lennox’s design comes out on top.


The Outdoor Learning Group are looking for donations of the following items that hopefully parents/carers might have spare:

– Old pots and pans

– Bricks

– Planks of wood (nails removed)

– Small cable wheels

– Pipes/guttering

– Ropes

– Materials for den building (old bedding/shower curtains)

– Clothes pegs

Miss Carle who organises the Outdoor Learning Group is happy for people to email her directly to check donations –  We want to avoid having too much of the same material because there is limited space to store it.
