Congratulations to our Medalists:

Sam Roxburgh, Alex and Cameron MacKean (20 mile road challenge)
S1 ex-pupil Jake Henderson too. Looks like he is enjoying the spoils of cycling 🙂
We are really proud of the lead role you take in keeping Crown cycling!
We are very proud of Mrs MacLeod, one of our PSAs, who completed the London Marathon today. Well done!
Yesterday Primary 1 – Primary 4 were treated to a visit from the author Lari Don. Lari was at Crown to promote her new book The Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster. Lari will be in Waterstones from 12pm on Saturday 21st April if you would like to hear her read The Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster again or at 2pm to discuss her ‘Spellchasers’ series.
That’s us just coming back into Inverness now. 😀
Yesterday all the groups had a hill day and spent time in various different locations. In the evening we all had a clan bonfire on the beach , toasted marshmallows and reflected on the week.
We are aiming to leave here at 1pm and return to school between 3-3.30pm depending on the traffic. We look forward to seeing you then.
FRIDAY 20 APRIL (TOMORROW)

SCHOOL GARDENING * FIRST SESSION OF 2018 *
Rescheduled from last week, on account of heavy rain. Forecast is looking good for tomorrow, so let’s hold the first session of 2018. All parental help hugely welcomed. No experience required. Younger siblings and nursery age kids can come along.
Any classes, along with teaching staff, who want to come out and garden also encouraged. Please co-ordinate this within the school.
Julie & other parent helpers.
Outdoor Drama Session with Barbara Henderson
P5/6 and P6 were lucky enough to have a visit from Barbara Henderson (author of Fir for Luck) in to visit us today as part of our Highland Clearances learning.
Barbara told us all about her inspirations for the book and read us the next part.
After that we went outside and took part in some drama activities and games relating to the Clearances and being evicted from the land.
We had loads of fun and were very grateful for her visit 😊
Another fantastic day! Activities included gorge walking , raft building , canoeing and mixed bag challenge.
What excitement…Mr Cameron has been busy!
We will build an agreement for responsible use before we can use it as we want it to last and last.
P1-P3 are having a visit from a newly-published author tomorrow. Signed copies of the book will be available. If you wish you child to have one, please put money in an envelope.
