Celebration of Achievement

In the first of our celebration of achievement assemblies for this term, we were able to recognise successes in so many different ways across the school from P1-7.

Lots of our pupils spoke about how they keep practising until they reach their target, and don’t give up, which was a great message to share!

So, for our roll call this week we have:

  • P1A Eilidh for successfully learning to read words by sounding out her sounds 
  • P1B Ella for AMAZING writing all on her own
  • P1/2 Anya and Jacob for fantastic storytelling all about the gingerbread man
  • P2 Shannon for being a great friend
  • P3A Jessica for great writing re-telling her trip to the beach
  • P3B Emily and Struan for explaining how they work to reach their learning targets
  • P4 Caleb and Leo for all their learning about angles (and checking what others in the assembly know about angles too!)
  • P4/5 Jackson and Calum for fantastic learning all about time
  • P5 Grace represented her class as Mrs McKay spoke how welcoming everyone had been in class, and Grace described the P5 spelling system which got the thumbs up!
  • P5/6 Isla and Scarlett for their detailed fact files about Martin Luther King Junior
  • P6 Emily also for demonstrating great research skills on her Martin Luther King Junior fact file, 
  • P6/7 Ava for her commitment and can-do attitude to basic facts
  • P7 Olivia for effective script writing and alongside Gareth for technical ability with music apps.

I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a great range of highlighted achievements in just the first week back of term. Great job, everyone! We’re looking forward to sharing lots more successes in different ways across the school over the course of this term.

Happy New Year!

Good morning!

This is just to welcome everyone back to school at the start of the new year. We hope our MOL pupils and families had a lovely, relaxing break and are looking forward to seeing the children in school today. Please remember to come dressed for the weather as it will be cold and wintry this term, and bring a water bottle to use every day at school.

Happy New Year and welcome back!


Merry Christmas!

On behalf of everyone at MOL, we would like to wish you a very merry Christmas and all the best for the new year. We’ve had a busy term with lots happening across the school and are looking forward to coming back for more in 2020. School re-opens on January 6th 2020 at 9am, and until then we wish you all a wonderful break.

After school procedures for today

As conditions are still so icy in the playground and decking areas, all pupils will be leaving school today by the gym hall door and the gate at the lower end of car park. Rather than waiting for your child at the class decking, please wait in the playground by the gate. Pupils in P1A, P1B, P1/2 and P2 will wait in the gym hall for pick up.

We appreciate your patience as we re-organise the end of day procedures for today, but we want to do all we can to ensure the safety of the pupils and families collecting. Thank you!


An update on this morning – the school playground is still very icy. Could we please ask that you drop your child off at the gym hall door so that they can come into the school directly or through the main door at the front of the school. It is still too icy for pupils to come through the playground and decking doors. Thank you
