Traditionally Smithton families are fantastically creative at this time of year so feel free to get the whole family to join in!

Mark your item clearly with your family names and all children and their classes that took part.

Proud Head Teacher


I have received a couple of emails about children at Smithton Primary and I thought I would share the comments.

Four pupils visited Drummond Special School in order to meet some children there and help promote the Elsie Normington Foundation.  Saul, (P4/5), Oliver (P5), Fiona and Demi-Leigh (P6) were chosen by Mr Speakman to go.

Helen, a teacher at Drummond, said ”Your four pupils were an absolute credit to you . They were very polite, lovely with our youngsters and I think they had a good time themselves.  They said they would like to come back again sometime so I hope that we can arrange this again. ”

The school was also visited by John Darcy, NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children).  John said,

Just a note to thank Mr Hardie and staff for their warm welcome and support at school both yesterday and on the 6th when I spoke to P1 –P3 pupils . Both assemblies were notable for not just excellent behaviour in big assemblies but for their attention and engagement making it both an easy and enjoyable experience for me .In addition I would draw your attention to the excellent engagement in all three workshops with many pupils putting forward varied and mature contributions on challenging subjects ,which says a great deal for the school as such issues are obviously tackled already in school .
