LETTER: School deserves praise

AS A former pupil, I was delighted to receive an invitation to the Kirkcowan School 150th anniversary celebrations and the placing of a time capsule into a tailor-made cairn.

From the introductory speech on the day until the last cream cake in the dining hall, the organisation was first class.

To me the highlight of the afternoon was provided by the children.

From the speeches, poems, songs and music, they were word and tone perfect.

To the teachers, parents and everyone else: the children were a credit to all of you involved.

Thanks again.

Jim Hyslop
