I miss primary school - Broghan Robertson 25/11/2018 15:10:37
Hii it's me Broghan one of the best students to ever grace the halls of Aitkenbar! well...maybe not the best...but anyway to be honest with you I don't know why I'm doing this maybe just because I'm bored on a gloomy Sunday afternoon or if I'm being honest I kinda miss being in the school not having to worry about getting to class on time or when I have tests...I never thought I would miss primary school until I actually left. I miss all the fun times I had and I wish I had smiled more during my time in aitkenbar or at least been happier in general. Since I haven't had the chance to do it in high school because of my unusual and rocky start I don't even know if this will be put up but I am glad I'm doing it however. Besides from that I have to go, I don't know when I will have time to do this again but I will try to make time for it even if it's only the teachers that see it or just the head teacher I am just happy somebody will anyways.
Goodbye for now ^_^

Good luck to Primary 7 when you start at Dumbarton Academy in August. I'll have to remember to bring a box of tissues next year as the spontaneous crying at the end nearly got to me as well. Remember your time at Aitkenbar fondly and keep in touch with your friends from the old school. I hope that all staff and pupils enjoy their well deserved holidays when they come.

Hello Everyone - Victoria Dolatowska 24/05/2016 19:06:19
Hello to everyone at Aitkenbar. I moved up to Scotland from Surrey in 1982 and had the huge good fortune to spend my P7 year in this wonderful school, this was my only year of Scottish primary education and what a great experience it was! Mrs Watson was my teacher and I loved her lunchtime dance clubs. I was captain of the netball team that won the league that year cheered on by Mrs Shanks. Mr Gray led the school and was a wonderful and kind man who gave each and every P7 pupil a special interview and discussed what they chose to read at home.
I moved to Fife halfway through my first year at Dumbarton Academy and am now the Headteacher at a Fife primary school, we are also in the midst of our Golden Jubilee celebrations-I see you celebrated your's in recent years.
My time at Aitkenbar was so happy with teachers who were way ahead of their time in terms of nurture and looking after the "whole child". I truly believe my happy days at Aitkenbar with Mrs Watson and the rest of the staff influenced my future career choice.
All the very best for your move to the new school with St Peter's, exciting times!
