Thanks to all staff, young people, parents, grandparents and friends of the school who came on Saturday to help with the grounds clear up. It’s only since last Monday that visitors have been allowed into school so it was lovely to see so many of you joining us to catch up on the work not done because of the building works and then the lockdowns. We were truly humbled by people’s dedication and commitment. Many thanks to the local gardeners who also donated plants – much better to have cuttings from local gardens than new plants from elsewhere. Hopefully now we will be able to keep the grounds in good shape…but we will have another Saturday morning where people can join in.
Education Scotland is coming for a visit on Wednesday to the school. I had asked for volunteers from parents to come forward and discuss how the school managed during lockdowns and managed to remain focused on children’s learning. Thanks so much to those who have said they can be online tomorrow, Tuesday 11.45 – 12.30. If you had missed the invite and are keen to have your say please let me know and I’ll give you the googlemeet link.
Here’s to another good week ahead.
