Great to see the tin whistle after school club representing the school on Saturday at the Inverness Music Festival where they came second in their category. (I aim to have videos of the Sing and Sign Group and the two P4 class poetry groups on the blog later this week.) With lots of practice, dedication and commitment perhaps our tin whistle group – and indeed all our musicians – may end up on stage performing to audiences up and down the country like Aiden and the band Citrus Scene who played at the Ironworks on Friday night. A treat for me both Friday night and Saturday afternoon! (I’ve definitely got the best job in the world…)
Talking of music and dance – the Parent Council disco is next Tuesday night. Here’s a message from the Parent Council:
School Disco – Tuesday 10th March
*** Parent Helpers ***
We need at least 10-12 parents in attendance at both the Nursery-P3 and again at the P4-P7 disco to ensure everyone has a safe & fun time.
It was decided at a Parent Council meeting to include the nursery kids in same disco as P1-3 now that the hall has been extended. Nursery children will still need to be accompanied throughout.
The disco is run by the Parent Council (not the school) and teachers are not around at this time.
We are all busy and have other commitments but it would be a shame for the kids not to get their disco as they always have so much fun and it really is fun to be involved in these events.
** Even if you can only spare 30 mins to help at the beginning of your child’s disco or to assist with the clean up at the end it would be a great help **.
Please let us know if you can help & which disco you can attend. firstname.lastname@example.org
Nursery – P3: 6pm – 7pm (nursery kids must be accompanied)
P4 – P7: 7.15 – 8.15
Looking forward to seeing you at Parent Contact times tomorrow and Wednesday. Unfortunately we can’t show you the usual websites and learning activities as we aren’t allowed to use the laptops at the moment! Each teacher will have a Chromebook at their desk to show you a few things and your child’s tray will be available. Please remember, though, so much of your child’s learning is done through outdoor play, online or in teams so the traditional ‘jotters’ don’t show everything. There will be a couple of young people asking you about ideas for a social media school policy and how parents can be involved with this. Please help us out with sharing your views and thoughts.
