St. Andrew’s Wear Yellow Day

As a school we took part in the annual ‘wear yellow’ day to raise funds for one of our partners, St. Andrew’s Hospice. We raised an amazing £335.08. Thank you to everyone who donated and to the Kindness Council for running the event.

Clydesdale Track and Field Championships

A number of our P6 & P7 children excelled  at the recent Clydesdale Track and Field Championships, held in Carluke.

Sports Week

As part of our Health and Wellbeing programme we held our annual Sports Week beginning Monday 27th May.  This was a remarkable success which culminated in our Sports Personality of the Year event. We were joined this year by Jake Hastie, a former Motherwell player who has recently signed for Glasgow Rangers. This caused much excitement amongst the audience and participants! Congratulations to all our winners, runners-up and those who took part in any of the activities over the week. Many congratulations to Abi Weir and Ruby Dickson, who were presented with the Maryam Najafian Sports Award. A special mention to Miss McMaster for organising this highly successful week with the aid of our current P7s- thank you. The children loved all the fantastic experiences on offer. Congratulations also to Miss Oswald, our coach of the year!

We had another fantatsic Lanimers celebration on Thursday 6th June. Over one hundred of our pupils joined our procession entry ‘Primary Weather Report’. We are delighted to announce that we won First Prize in our category and the Vancouver Shield for Overall Best School Entry- a magnificent achievement. None of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of our Lanimer Committee. Their enthusiasm is infectious and they give so much of their time to make the lorry, costumes and performace the best they can be. On behalf of everyone who takes part- thank you!

Also a special well done to Mark, Ewan, Calum, Erin and Eilidh who looked amazing and performed their duties magnificently
