Hillside School hosted their school prom at The Dumfries Arms recently and it was a joy to watch the children arriving to the tunes from the piper at the front door, every one of them had made a real effort dressing up for the occasion and they looked great. The room was decked out in rainbow colours, the sweetie cart was in place and the dance floor was buzzing, not to mention East Ayrshires colourful provost Jim Todd helping keep the kids entertained.

Hillside School is a special School for children with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties, so it was a real delight to see the smiles on their faces.
