Eco Group and Gardening

The Eco group have been leading us all in planting. Eileen Summers came in from the Council to talk to us about bees and plants we could grow to encourage them. Jean came in to help us start growing vegetables in the polytunnel. Everybody got involved!

Comic Relief

Pupil Council organised our activities for Comic Relief this year. We had a tombola, scavenger hunt and "splat the staff". Thanks to everyone who came in to support us, we raised £156.93!

World Book Day

The library group did a fabulous job of organising our World Book Day activities. We all dressed up too!

Our new climbing wall!

We are really lucky - the Community Association have received funding from the Garfield Weston Anniversary Fund for a new climbing wall and freedom climber in our school hall. It is going to be shared with everyone in the community.

 

Christmas 2018

We enjoyed our Christmas lunch!

At the Christmas assembly some of the older children played violin and piano. The P3 and P4 children played recorder.

Children in Need 2018

Well done everyone (and especially to Pupil Council). We raised £175.10 for Children in Need. Pupil Council ran a stall all week, with lots of Children in Need things to buy. On Monday Pudsey came in to visit, and on Friday we all wore Patterns or Pyjamas to school.

Anti Bullying Policy

We are in the process of reviewing our anti bullying policy. Please take a look at it using this link (scroll to the policies part and it is listed as Anti Bullying Policy draft) and let us know if you have any thoughts. We will hopefully finalise it at the next Parent Council meeting.

New term - Autumn 2018

Welcome back everyone! We have had a good start to the term so far, with a visit from Alastair Carmichael MP for the P1 - 3 pupils and swimming and visiting the library for P4 - 7.

Bag the Bruck 2018

We went to Sandgarth Beach in Shapinsay to collect rubbish that's been washed up, or "bag the bruck". We collected 11 bags of rubbish, 2 creels, a tyre and a really long pipe!
