Fourth Year pupils who are preparing to leave Dalry School to start their Fifth Year work in Castle Douglas High School had the opportunity to work with some of their new classmates recently. The links between the two schools have always been strong and this year an afternoon of activities was organised to further strengthen the connection.

Time was set aside to allow the pupils from each school to meet their counterparts, working together for an hour in the Home Economics Department to make crepes with chocolate sauce; they then worked off the effects of those crepes in a games session, organised by staff in the PE Department.

This allowed pupils to work together in teams and to make social contact prior to the new term starting. The afternoon was very successful and the pupils enjoyed their time together.

Mr Donnelly, Head Teacher of Castle Douglas High School said, “We always look forward to the pupils from Dalry joining us here at Castle Douglas. Staff from both schools work hard to make the transition process as smooth as possible and as a school we feel we benefit greatly from the pupils’ arrival’’
