End of Term One

Eight weeks gone…just like that! We’ve welcomed new pupils into the school and had sad farewells to families who have moved away. We’ve had new staff join us and dealt with COVID, chest infections, broken limbs, bumps and bruises. But we’re resilient! Despite setbacks around the pandemic children and young people are learning. They are settling into class routines and they are happy, polite and willing to take responsibility. They are a credit to you – their families and friends.

P2 have been looking at road safety this week. As the nights ‘draw in’ it’s important that all of us use road safety rules to keep us from getting hurt. Watch this short video and please share on all your social media platforms to remind parents driving around the school that precious people are trying to cross a road. Please park safely and allow extra time if you are coming to pick up by ‘park and striding’ thanks to Smithton Free Church for allowing us to park there.

Stuck for an activity to do over the October holidays? Watch this short video and paint a green heart on a stone for our community! Please bring them into school the first week back after the holidays. Thanks to Becky who works for the Barn Church and King’s Fellowship for organising this.

Have a look at the photos in the slideshow. There’s great Star Award reasons as well as Baxter runners (including a marathon running teacher!), a Mod winning Gaelic singer, a ten pin bowling champion and snapshots from classes around their ‘big question’ week.

Continue to stay safe and know how much staff are striving to help your child be the very best he or she can be.
