Gatehouse Primary School Newsletter August 2020


Welcome Back!

It has been wonderful to have the school and the playground full of children again. Thanks to all of you for adapting to the new procedures so well, it has really helped create the relaxed and happy atmosphere there has been in the school this week.

The children have adapted brilliantly to all the new procedures, washing and sanitising their hands and obeying all the new regulations we have for moving around the school without a problem.

Remember that parents can also wait on the other side of the wall opposite the school car park. Mr Cruickshanks will be able to see you very easily there when sending the children to meet you. This will make it easier for parents to maintain the 2m distance


Following Mrs McClymont’s retiral, Miss Duka and Mrs Hunt will be sharing the role of Principal teacher.

Welcome to three new staff members:

Nikki Smith – Nursery manager

Louise Frankland – Nursery nurse

Abbie Rennie – Nursery nurse

Following Mrs McClymont’s retiral, Miss Duka and Mrs Hunt will be sharing the role of Principal teacher.


Envelopes have been provided for the school meal payments. The children should bring the completed envelopes into school and place them in a box in their classroom. Please make sure you pay the exact amount as change cannot be given. Cheques can also be used and should be made payable to DG First.

P1-P3 - Free

Monday/Tuesday/  Wednesday - £1:00

Thursday / Friday - £1:90
