**COMPETITION WINNERS **
We were delighted in 2020 to have been one of 20 schools throughout the UK to win a place in this year's official song for Odd Socks Day and Anti-Bullying Week 2021. Mr Barr's Primary 7 class represented the school in this venture and can be seen joining in the fun and living out the message of how 'One Kind Word' can make all the difference. Please enjoy the song by Andy and the Odd Socks and look out for our P7s.
MONDAY 15th NOVEMBER 2021 - 'ODD SOCKS DAY'
KILLOWEN REMEMBERS 2021
Over the last few days, the pupils of Killowen have been taking time to 'always remember never to forget'. Classes engaged in a wide range of activities from paintings and drawings, to class discussions and the retelling of family stories. We were honoured to have members of the Royal British Legion, a MOD Staff Officer and Governors join us for a special outdoor Remembrance Service. The Rev. Alan Craig, Minister of Trinity Methodist Church led the service with Piper Mark Smyth playing war time laments as the children gathered and then bowed their heads, in poignant tribute to the sacrifice, of so many, for all our freedoms.
