We would really appreciate a couple of helpers for this event. The bus leaves around 915 and we hope to be leaving around 1230. There are some seats on the bus but if you can meet us there, that will be fine too. Many thanks.

Wednesday 21st March, 6,30pm
All welcome. We will be discussing upcoming events and the progress with the fundraising for the all weather pitch. Any contribution to helping, however small, is always welcome. We will be discussing the Summer Fayre, Sports Day, P7 Disco and additional events held by the school. Hope to see you there. If you cannot make it, but would like to send information or comments in advance of the meeting, please email me at Jackie@highlanddog.com.
Congratulations to Harris for being the first playground champion. He was chosen out of all the children from the whole school. He has shown real kindness and care for our new friend to P1 Matvei. He has no English, so you can imagine how tricky and overwhelming things are for him at the moment and Harris has been taking great care of him and it was noticed by lots of staff. So well done to you!

21st March is Down’s Syndrome awareness day. We would encourage everyone to wear odd socks- even McRobert Cup competitors!
Miss McNee has been overwhelmed by the support from parents for Monday’s rugby trip.
She asked me to pass on her sincere thanks to all who have offered. She has now contacted all the helpers she needs.
We will try this approach again! 🙂
P6 have been invited to play touch rugby in front of Princess Anne on Monday. Unfortunately we do not have any offers of parents to accompany them yet. Is there anyone from the wider school who could walk with P6 to the rugby pitches between 11.00 and 1.00? If we can’t get parent helpers, we cant go and it’s a wonderful opportunity.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help in any way.
We kindly ask that dogs are not brought into the playground, unless they are guide dogs.
This is standard practice for all schools.
INVERNESS PARK RUN- an invitation from Max and Julie…
Whin Park (unless listed as Bught) on Saturday 17 March 2018, meeting at 09.15 for a 09.30 start
Inverness parkrun is a grassroots (non competitive) weekly running event, and part of a national movement by local communities to get people into running. Locally, it is held in either Whin or the Bught Park, starting at 09.30am sharp every Saturday morning, and runs year round. It is entirely FREE to participate in, and run by volunteers, but you need to register with parkrun ahead of the event to obtain a unique barcode. www.parkrun.org.uk>inverness
It is open to adults and children alike, although children under 12 need to have an adult present / participate with them. The full course is 5k / 3.1 miles, and approximately 3 loops, but you can easily build up to this by undertaking a single loop, or running and walking the course. If you do complete the course, you will gain an individual time; a personal parkrun record. It is open to all, family friendly, fun and inclusive.
Some families from the school are already registered, and participate on an informal basis. However it would be good to put out an open invite to those who may be interested in running or starting running (adults and children alike) and to the children who have had a season of cross country running at the school and / or are participating in the MacRobert Cup (next week) to consider coming down this Saturday 17 March 2018, and meeting at the park at 09.15 for a run. Whatever your pace, even if you are just getting going, it is good practice for stamina, distance, rough terrain and running in a crowd. It is cross country running within the setting of a city, and good fun.
Maybe see you there this Saturday? Julie (parent) & Max P6
A HUGE congratulations to our amazing Euroquiz team who came first place in the Highland heat today. We are so proud of you and can’t wait to see how you do in the finals!
Also a big thank you to Izzy for all of her hard work and enthusiasm in getting the team ready for the competition. Thanks also to Keren for your input 😊. These things aren’t possible without the dedication of parent volunteers and we greatly appreciate it as do the team!
