Hi, can anyone help redirect me to the correct page where I can order a cardigan for my 6yr granddaughter. Sorry if on the wrong part of Facebook.
Hi everyone. I'm looking for a wee bit of help. I was doing the nail stall at the fete last night, I'm looking to find a lovely older lady who came and got her nails done. This lady had gorgeous nails and was very proud of them, the reason she wanted them done at the stall was because she is now unable to do her own nails due to her hands being extremely shakey, she was ever so pleased with her nails being painted and I would love to get in contact with her and offer my services as a nail tech in training to make sure she has her nails done whenever she likes. If anyone knows this lady could you please let me know. Thanks very much.
What a great night again at the annual fete!
And a shout out to those trying one of the new stalls this year - the fitness challenge!
Well done to all participants and to the girls for running it for encouraging everyone!
The results were as follows :

Fittest female: Claudia Konther
Fittest male: John Marshall
Fittest child : Leya Gardiner

Fun was also had at the new photo booth with plenty of props to make some funky photos with friends. Again run by parents to make the fundraiser a great success!

And it was sunny sunny sunny 😎

Glenburn EYC is on the list and would maybe appreciate a wee vote. 😉 x


A really lovely idea that I will be doing with my 3 boys. 🥰 We are still doing cheeky elf antics for them to wake up to as they really look forward to it. Then in the evening the elves will hide something to add to the food hamper. 😊 Will definitely keep us all all busy over Christmas. 🎅🏻

Why not join in too? ☺️

Good morning..
One if our elves seen this yesterday and we absolutely love this idea. I know many if you will be absolutely dreading the elf on the shelves and coming up with new things to do..

Well why not try this. You could help support not only the foodbank but also smaller community groups that will be doing Christmas hampers this year.
I will gather a list today of groups you could support in your community.
The one I know that do amazing work in Ayr is Smith’s community Support last year they made up 50 food hampers for those in need in our local area.
This is definitely what my kids elves will be doing this year x🎄🎅☃️

⭐ New P1's that's your ties ready which are a little gift from everyone on the Parent council to say Welcome to Glenburn! 🐝


🐝 On behalf of everyone on Glenburn Parent Council we would like to say goodbye to Mrs Linda Carins who has been Glenburns amazing Head Teacher for the past 6 years. We hope you enjoy every minute of your retirement and manage some more holidays in the sun as you most definitely deserve it! 🌞 Thanks again for all your support, you will definitely be missed! 💖



* Uniforms - online orders from May were delivered to the school on Monday and distributed to classes for children to take home. Should your child be absent this week (and if you haven't done so already) you can collect from the school office up until 1pm close tomorrow.
You may have received notification of a shortage to your order which will follow. The parents have already been contacted by the school office to allow correspondence from myself during the holidays by leaving a current contact number.

*New P1s - as normal, ties are gifted for this special transition and we had expected delivery in time for giving them out to pupils by the end of this week . Sadly this has not been this case and we are still awaiting an update. But you will receive the information you need regarding collection of ties via email from Mrs Blackwood today.

* Nursery parents- ordering your nursery uniform items is now about to take place and you will have received an email regarding this should you wish to do so. This includes a link to the Kylemark website where you can place your order and pay online.
These orders will be delivered to nursery within the summer weeks. Always allow around 2 weeks from the order closing date which is Friday 2nd July.
***Please make sure you do not miss this closing date for orders***






As directed by the school email today the uniforms can now be ordered via the Kylemark website for the new term (link on email)
All orders MUST be in by Sunday latest (23rd) to make this bulk order without exception.
The order will be delivered to the school just before the end of this term.

* there is a special price on the smart Softshell jackets at the moment so I would definitely consider scooping even a bigger size in one of these at £17. But please remember these are very small made so you will need to go up a size from normal!


Uniform orders which were placed online should be delivered to school this coming Monday.


🐝 Please be advised that the school will be closed to pupils on Monday 3rd May (May Day Holiday) and Thursday 6th May (Inservice Day). 🌞



Hi all,

If anyone is registered with Prestwick After School Care, even if you aren’t using it right now, please could you attend the EGM meeting on Wednesday 31st March, 7pm. You should have had an invite on email.
