The Digital Dynamos pupil group would like to invite all parents/carers to their ‘Collaborating with Chromebooks’ Information Evening on Wednesday 27th March from 6-7pm in our school gym hall.
The Digital Dynamos will be presenting throughout the evening and everyone will get a chance to use, learn and play with our new Chromebooks and Chromebook tablets, as well as other mobile devices we have available at school. More details are intended to follow regarding this exciting family learning event!
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.

Thank you for the support today. We have raised about £208. The amount and quality of the baking was fantastic – plenty to tempt and feed everyone. The stalls went well and we all shared our talents and skills. We can cost out our Edinburgh trip as we include the Disco money with today’s amount.
We were very proud of our class today. They dealt with the UNICEF emergency simulation event in a responsible, calm, respectful and cooperative manner.
We had a “debrief” after break and many of the pupils expressed feeling “annoyed” and that we they couldn’t trust us. We understood their emotions and hoped that the positive way in which they handled themselves proved to them that the experience was worthwhile. We were supported by Zoe, a UNICEF representative, who came into the class to work with us.
We spent some time reflecting on the situations of children around the world whose rights are denied for months and years due to disaster situation not just for 1.5 hours.
We were privileged to have been offered this experience as a trial school (only 1 other school has tried it out) and trust that the event will have been worthwhile.
WEDNESDAY 13th FEB:
We have been invited to watch the Pr 5 and Pr 6 Scottish Opera Dress Rehearsal Performance at the Culduthel Christian Centre. (1.30 pm)
Once that is finished we are walking to the IRA for a PE session with Mrs Chisholm. We will be dismissed from the IRA at 3 pm. Pupils must have a full change of PE kit and clean indoor trainers.
FRIDAY 15th FEB:
Edinburgh Trip Fundraiser: The pupils are running stalls which will run at break time and lunchtime. Baking from all pupils would be appreciated.
