Woods, Beaches and New Term Updates

The school as a whole will have a focus on financial education this term. Why not sign up to this course? It is highly effective according to others who have attended so far.
You may remember way back in March that the Making a Difference Enterprise group set up some activities around how to stop smoking and other well being activities. We were entered into an award and have been successful for the second year in a row winning the shield and now flag! As a follow on, children from each class will get some substance awareness training this term from staff who have been working on lesson planning, Jo from the family team and Mrs Fraser from the support team.

So good to see many of you outside over the holidays enjoying the ‘Scottish Sunshine’ (i.e. rain). Please let you child’s teacher know if your child should get a certificate at assembly on Friday. Thanks to Katy and her team for providing a Citizen Science Nature Session which families signed up to do last Friday – great morning had by all!

Dylan was third in his bowling league – and coach’s player of the year! Well done, Dylan!

Martin Bannerman and Thistle Colts are starting up football for P1 children starting this Sunday, Ist November at Culloden Pitches, beside SCY Centre. All welcome with coaching starting at 0930 and finishing at 1015, rain, hail or shine! For COVID procedures and to regsiter your interest please contact Martin directly martin.bannerman@yahoo.co.uk

While Children in Need and all Christmas activities will go ahead this year, they will be very different. When I’ve had time to discuss with staff I will share with you but we do have a few plans! Watch this space…

Good to be back and to hear the children’s voices in the corridors, outside and using the language of learning in classes.

Aileen Mackay, HT
