About Our School

On behalf of everyone at Abernethy PS, I would like to extend a warm welcome.

In Abernethy, we recognise that every child is unique with a variety of abilities and needs.  We strive to recognise and fulfil these needs, in order for all children to reach their full potential.
We are a Sports Gold Award for the second time and Eco School with Green flag status.  We promote each childs sense of responsibility and respect for themselves, others, their community and the world they live in.

We in Abernethy Primary are one of 11 Primary Feeder schools for Perth High School.

At Abernethy we value the importance of good relationships between home and school and seek to work closely with you throughout your child’s school career. Parents are always very welcome to come and meet the Class Teacher, Principal Teacher and/or the Head Teacher to discuss their child’s education and wellbeing.

Hoodies - Thurs pick up arrangements

It was so lovely to be able to give so many pupils their P7 Hoodies today - enjoy!

Have a super holiday everyone.

P7 Hoodies

Good afternoon everyone and I hope you are enjoying the super weather.

Well after 2 days in school finalising arrangements for next term, I am delighted to say that my time has been made all the sweeter, as we have also had word of the Leavers Hoodie delivery - yeh!!
I have been reassured that they will be delivered today by 5.20pm - my fingers are crossed.

In terms of pupils coming to collect their hoodies, I can remain here in school today until 6pm today if anyone is at home in the village and wants to pop up to the front entrance between 5.30-6pm. If not please do not worry, Mrs Hepburn shall be popping into school on Thursday to also set up for next term, so she can pass them on then. If attending on Thurs, we shall confirm the time with you in due course.
After meeting some of our P7 pupils outside this afternoon (or should I say our new S1s), I have asked them to spread the word.
I thank you all for your patience with this. Everyones hard work is finally paying off.
Regards, Ms McKenzie
