At assembly, on 19th September, we celebrated World Peace Day. A group of P.6s and 7s led the prayers of peace and shared their Art work while the rest of the school joined them in singing. Mr. Graham, one of our local ministers, joined us in prayer and celebration. After lunch the whole school went into the playground to watch 10 balloons being released with messages of peace from every class. It was a memorable and thought provoking moment for everyone!
A warm welcome to our school and Nursery.
All the staff are looking forward to another successful and rewarding session with the children in our third year as Ben Wyvis Primary School. We are proud of all that we have achieved in the last two years.
We strive to create a happy, stimulating and caring environment that will enable your child to develop both academically and socially. At Ben Wyvis Primary, we are proud to work as a TEAM, where together everyone achieves more. The staff are committed to working together to bring challenge, fun and excitement into every child`s learning. We also believe that a strong and supportive partnership between home and school is essential to the health and well-being of our children. As a community school we continue to build links with our local community members.
As we embrace our third session as Ben Wyvis Primary, we hope that the information we provide will be useful to you and your family. If you have any further suggestions or queries, please feel free to contact us.
The sun was certainly shining down on the last day of May for our Summer Fete. Lots of adults and children came along to enjoy the event and spend money to support school funds.
There was a wonderful atmosphere and it was great to see the huge variety of stalls, highland dancers, police dogs, fire engine, etc., as well as the enterprise stalls, planned and organised by staff and pupils.
The amount raised far surpassed the Parent Partnership expectations—around £3,500 Wow! What an achievement, thanks to the time, commitment and dedication of the members, who started planning the event a year ago.
On top of this, classes raised a combined total of around £1000 in profit. Pupils will decide how the money is spent. Each class has agreed to donate some of their profit to Mary`s Meals. The pupils have learned that this organisation provides a basic meal every day to pupils, in many countries, to encourage them to break out of poverty and attend school. The cost of feeding one child for a year is only around £12!
