Some of the pupils came in their uniforms today. This was as part of Remembrance Day.
We had a Space Junk workshop at World of Work and programmed lego models which could collect “junk”. We watched a short film about Clyde Space, a space technology company near Glasgow, who make satellites which weigh only 4 kg. Thank you to our parent helper.
Miss Ross helped us to make poppies for a large school display as part of our Remembrance activities this week. The display is being put together by Pr 5 and Pr 6/7 are taking a special Remembrance Assembly on Friday.
Thank you again to ENECO and Mr Amores for our Moy WIndfarm experience today. We had super weather up on site. We met Ewan and Ian who help to manage the site and take care of the ecology around the windfarm. We watched and listened as the turbine was switched on and off. They are huge!
We have started a 6 week transition programme called Resilient Kids. We work alongside Donna and Jackie from the Inverness Royal Academy. We look at our emotional literacy/wellbeing and how we can cope and deal with the changes ahead. We talk about our emotions and discuss possible scenarios or pupil experiences which may cause problems/dilemmas and feelings linked to these.
Resilient Kids is a Highland Council publication and we have used it successfully in the school at key transition stages.
If you have any questions or wish to know more about the resource, please let us know.
A sincere thank you to the amazing Pr 7’s who helped to organise and run a fantastic Fancy Dress Disco last night. Everything went to plan! The stalls were full of variety and the DJs were on form with super music and even showcasing the dance moves!
We do appreciate the help and support from home to make this happen! There was lots of money spent on prizes and materials for the stalls/games. Thank you for being part of the event in that way.
We were delighted with the fantastic turnout across all stages of the school. Thank you to everyone who came along all dressed for the occasion. Hope you all had a great time!

Where did the ball go?
Dookin for apples
Thanks to all the staff who came along to help us run the disco safely.
The money raised will offset trip costs for an educational visit we have provisionally booked for next May.
