St Columba's Bookbug Sessions

Pop along to our weekly term-time Bookbug sessions on Fridays from 9.00-9.45am in the Livingstone Hall at St Columba’s Junior School, Knockbuckle Road, Kilmacolm.

Bookbug sessions are free, fun and friendly events for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and their families to enjoy together. Each session lasts around 45 minutes and includes songs, stories and rhymes. Our session is hosted by Miss Victoria Jones who works in our Early Years department and is a Scottish Book Trust Bookbug session leader.

We look forward to welcoming you and your little ones. Sessions run until the 22nd of June 2018.




Our popular Art Class for adults cover four different aspects of painting, starting with water colours and ending with oil painting. All abilities are welcome as are our stalwart members of the group whose work was exhibited very successfully last June. Lessons take place in the School’s art rooms and are relaxed and friendly. Led by artist and teacher Helen Mathie, our classes are suitable for artists of any level, including beginners.

The 8-week Spring sessions run on a Tuesday evening from 7-9pm at Senior School: Tuesday 16th Jan - 13th Feb (closed for mid term holiday) then 6th Mar - 20th Mar.
