There were plenty of thrilling Halloween events and parties happening all over Galloway this week, here are some of the highlights.

The P7 pupils at Portpatrick Primary School planned and organised an excellent Halloween party as part of their STAR award work.

These awards run through the whole school by class stage and help the pupils to work on lots of skills to help them become the very best they can be.

STAR stands for striving towards achievement recognition and the children have embraced the challenges set wholeheartedly, working on them both in and out of school.

Acting partnership principle teacher Anne Ferguson said: “As part of their work towards their bronze level award at P7 level, the pupils had to plan, organise and run a party.

“They all really enjoyed doing this and the rest of the school had a fang-tastic time!”

The children at Leswalt Primary School thoroughly enjoyed the party organised by the P7 pupils.

Partnership headteacher Sheila Baillie said: “They all looked seriously spooky and had lots of fun ducking for apples.”

There was a fancy dress competition at the party.

The winners were: P1 Maisie P2 Gregor P3 Erin P4 Jenna P5 Ethan P6 Jamie P7 Lauren

Whithorn Primary School and Nursery also had a spooky party.

The school had a Halloween fun day on Wednesday October 28 and the nursery class had their own party on Thursday October 29.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and there were some particularly scary costumes.

Kirkcowan also had a fantastic Halloween themed party held in St Couan’s Hall on Saturday evening.

Lots of children of all ages attended in fancy dress and enjoyed some spooky games.
