It was Ian's birthday, and he was 60 so what better excuse for an end of term / Ian's birthday party! It was great fun!

The Shapinsay Kirk is now part of eco congregation Scotland (find out more at www.ecocongregationscotland.org). Rev Julia came in to speak to us with Adrian Shaw from the Church of Scotland, and they brought with them a baton made from a recycled church pew. The baton is travelling across Scotland before going to Paris with a message for those taking part in the Paris climate change talks in December.
We watched this video about climate change and we learned that we can have a positive impact on climate change by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide we produce. We all (including the adults from the community who came in too) made a pledge. By all making small changes, we can hopefully help other communities around the world where climate change is causing people to leave their homes.

Rev Julia Meason came in today to work with some parents about online safety, following guidance from CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection). It was a useful session, and we hope to carry out another session in an evening soon for anyone who couldn't come today.

Through its Education Programme, Thinkuknow CEOP offers a range of safety information for children, young people, practitioners and parents/carers.

We have had a good start to the new term, with everyone straight back into work. We had a good discussion in assembly today about Pupil Council - elections for the new Pupil Council will take place next Tuesday.

Today we had our end of term assembly and afterwards we managed to soak the P7s... eventually! The plan was to have them posing for a photo while Ian tipped a wheelbarrow of water over them but sadly we had them standing a little far back and the adults got wetter than the children! So we decided it wasn't enough and the children then had hoses and buckets of water thrown over them!
