Newsletter 2

Another busy week. Sadly a few people haven’t been well enough to attend school this week.

Ruby started nursery, it’s great to have her on-board. The nursery feels very busy now and I'm increasing excited to get the new nursery open.

Active start took on a new look this week. Each child in P3 and P4 were given £10. We then priced up all the activities in the classroom and the children had to budget for the week. This will continue into next week. It was agreed that if a child is unable to come to school then a charge of £2 is deducted from their account each day.

As part of our curriculum backdrop of Scotland the older children are doing a 'tour of Scotland' researching and creating guides. We have decided to challenge P3-5 to a two night residential trip to Edinburgh. The trip will take place at the end of March giving us plenty of time to plan and to address concerns. This is very much at the earliest of stages of planning, but it will be an action packed, cultural and culinary experience. There will be lots of opportunity to discuss this closer to the time.

Mrs McCallum and Ms Petrie returned to their Gaelic course this week. Mrs McKenzie has also been away on a course in preparation for the new nursery accepting eligible two year olds.

Thursday lunch was a huge hit with the sausages form Moal Farm.  Thanks Lorna!

Please note next Thursday lunch is not provided as Mr McKenzie is away on a First Aid renewal course and he is head chef. Also we plan to have no first aid incidents while he's away!

Have a great weekend.
