As part of the Harvest Service, P5 and P5/6 are collecting for the Highland Homeless Trust. This year, we would like donations of toiletries that can be delivered as ‘comfort packages’. We are looking for items such as:
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Razor and shaving foam
No food or medicines should be handed in.
Donations are to be handed into P5 or P5/6 by Tuesday 3rd October.
The Crown Shinty After School Club runs from 3.15pm until 4.15pm on Monday afternoons. Traditionally it was for P4 to P7 pupils but I will open it to younger pupils if a parent helper can help out on the day. Anyone who is interesting in attending can just show up on Monday afternoon to have a “Come and Try” session. If any parents are interested please comment below.
Just a reminder that we will be hosting this Monday 25th September at 630pm.
Highland Council Numeracy Development Officer, Kirsten Mackay, will be giving an update on developments in numeracy practice and how you can support your child.
We will also be discussing our progress with pupil profiles and how we will engage pupils and parents in the learning process.
Please email me if there is anything else you would like us to discuss.
Looks like we are going to be getting wet today.
I’m taking you out on the pavements in hi-viz tonight- on the hunt for a couple of hills- so you MUST have appropriate footwear and kit.
As part of our continued drive as a Rights Respecting School, we have invited a speaker from NSPCC to come and present assemblies on pupil safety, rights and protection from harm.
NSPCC: “As the UK’s leading children’s charity we’re committed to making sure we’re there to help schools around the country keep their pupils safe.”
Below is a link to the highly relevant content that will be shared, at an age appropriate level. This will give you a basis for dialogue with your child after the assemblies if they come home with a response or questions. The assemblies, and associated P6/P7 workshops, will be on Monday 25th September.
In response to complaints from neighbours and parents, there may be cause to start putting polite parking notices on cars.
This is in the spirit of keeping all our children and parents safe and to encourage considerate life-long habits as our pupils grown into adult drivers themselves.
It would be even better if we didn’t have to resort to the notices!
