Newton Mearns youngsters mark the end of an era

A group of East Renfrewshire youngsters have marked the end of their time at primary school with a glitzy ‘prom’-style event.

The Maidenhill Primary School pupils, who are set to take their next steps into high school following the summer break have celebrated the milestone in style with a week of events, which culminated in the prom on 17 June.

With residential trips on hold this year due to ongoing restrictions, teachers at Maidenhill Primary School went to every effort to make the end of term special for the children, and organised a host of trips around the local area, rounding off with a prom at the school.

The homebuilders from Maidenhill, the development the school is situated on, donated funds to the school to ensure the pupils had a special send off.

CALA Homes (West) and Taylor Wimpey West Scotland provided Mearns Castle school ties to all 14 pupils, which were presented at the prom.  The homebuilders also decorated their sales suites with balloons and banners to welcome pupils who were driven to the school in a limo for the special occasion.

The funding also went towards a range of activities for the pupils, including a pizza movie night, Zorb football, pottery, and a picnic in the park.
