What a lovely morning we had with all the families visiting today. The children were so excited and enthusiastic showing their families their hard work.
It has become apparent in a number of classes across the school, that there has been a significant amount of discussion regarding the ‘Momo Challenge’. As a school, we are keen to promote digital safety and encourage our pupils to stay safe whilst online, at both school and home, by making responsible choices. This also encompasses our core values as a school and we therefore try to promote and encourage our pupils to share concerns and be responsible in their online usage.
Many parents/carers may already be fully aware from national media coverage that this is a challenge presented on certain social media outlets that many of our children use frequently.
We are always working hard to ensure online safety, and in light of current topics in the media we have attached some parent information as support below for you to peruse:
We hope you find all of this information useful in supporting your children and all our pupils and ultimately keeping them safe online.
The Lochardil Team.
Just a reminder that there are lots of exciting healthy activities to bring your children to at the school this evening and everyone is welcome. There is no cost and you can play football with Inverness Caley Thistle, make a smoothie and join in laughing yoga.
We had a lovely day today! The children were delighted to bring in things that made them happy and tell us why their item made them happy. In the afternoon, we discussed different words for happiness and talked about how we feel inside our bodies when we are happy.
Here we are all dressed down for Happiness Day.
Celebrate World Book Day on March 7th with a new book from the Scholastic Book fair.

Entries to the office by Tuesday 5th March. Have fun reading out and about or even upside down!
Last week Primary 2 made stick dogs. The children thoroughly enjoyed looking after them and they certainly got lots of exercise in the playground. Today the children wrote all about their new pets. They were able to use lots of interesting adjectives to describe their dogs appearance and personality.
Just to let you know there has been a change of date for the open morning. The open morning will now take place on Wednesday 13th March at 9.15 -10 am.
We hope to see you there!
It was a snowy day but we were all keen to go out for our walk in the community to discover the different features of our community and look for patterns and shapes. The children were thinking about how our needs are met in the community and from their learning about children’s rights they were able to identify whether the features were something we ‘need’ or ‘want’. They developed their skills in taking photographs and here are some examples of their work. Apologies for the lack of photos of the children, I got so carried away with their enthusiasm in using the cameras I forgot to take photos of the children!!
We are delighted to share that Lochardil has received the most number of tokens in the recent round of the TESCO Community Awards Bags for Life Scheme. Our Wise About Waste application should now be more achievable and we look forward to using the money (£4,000) effectively.
A big thank you to everyone who supported us.
The parent meeting times have now been allocated, so please check your child’s reading diary for the day and time of your meeting.
