The P7 pupil, who goes to high school in the autumn, will be sashed during Sunday’s church service in the village parish church.
And villagers are gearing up for a fun-filled festival week starting with the girls’ and boys’ five-a-side football next Saturday in the school playing field. Creative residents, meanwhile, are already planning inspired scarecrows which go on display outside homes for the week.
Next Sunday, the festival family day – including races, team games, welly throwing, boules, tombola refreshments and more – takes place from 2pm on the school playing field.
