We are very sad because Miss Squeakalot, one of the guinea pigs, died last Saturday. She hadn't been very well so we took her to the vet but there wasn't anything that could be done.
We all helped at the funeral and have decorated her grave.

The Pupil Council once again organised our fund raising activities for Comic Relief. They did a great job, with the children wearing red, dressing in a funny way, face painting, selling Red Noses and organising a sweepstake.
We raised over £180, not bad for a peedie school - well done!

The Shapinsay School performance of "Cinderella & Rockerfella" was FANTASTIC! It has been described by folk as "the best show ever in Shapinsay" and we are SO proud of you all. Well done children and all the staff who have worked really hard on the performance. The show was packed with lots of people coming from the community and further afield and everyone really enjoyed it. DVDs are now on sale, so please come and see us at school if you would like one - the cost is £5.

We had lots of fun playing in the snow. Sadly it didn't last very long!

We had a visit from Dr Simon Hall who is working with Education Scotland to promote the Scots Language. He came to see all the work we have been doing with Orcadian Dialect and we all really enjoyed his version of the Gruffalo in Orcadian!

It's been very windy in Shapinsay recently; the sheds ended up on the roof in the courtyard!
