What a fantastic opportunity and experience for Andrew, Niamh, Louise and Charley. They were invited along to the Regional Summit, hosted at the Iron Works in Inverness. Along with representatives from many other schools, they were asked their views and concerns about education today. They met and listened to adults from Education Scotland and the Scottish Government. But the highlight for them all seems to have been getting Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister for Scotland`s autograph and having their picture taken with her. What a memorable experience!
Niamh, Louise, Charley, Kristian and Andrew represented the school in the Rotary Quiz at Resolis Primary. Under a lot of pressure they kept their nerve, answered well and scored highly. They were only beaten into second place by one point, by Tarradale Primary. Well done! We`re proud of you.
The Pupil Council thank everyone who has drawn a Funny Red Nose Face. These fab pictures are on display outside the office, so have a look and maybe get some great ideas for making your own face funny for Comic Relief on Friday 13th March, (don’t forget to bring a donation.)
Well done to our strong team of boys and girls who represented the school in the cross country championship at Alness. The girl`s team came second overall in their category and the boys came fourth. Kirsty had a brilliant run in the individuals coming third out of hundreds of runners with Lilly-Belle close behind in eighth place. What an achievement! Many thanks to Miss Hamilton for her weekly coaching.
Congratulations to Muriel, Kristian and Scott for making it through to the semi-finals of the badminton tournament being held in Inverness. We had a very strong team representing the school in the last round and they all played magnificently against some tough competition. What a fantastic team! Many thanks to Mrs. Beaton and Mrs. Fraser for giving their time to coach them every week.
Our Primary 1/2 and 2 were awarded a first in the Action Song category at Eden Court theatre with their song – The Loch Ness Monster. Some of the judges comments were that, “The actions went beautifully together….with the melody freshly delivered …..and the rhythm of the song was well maintained.” Well done! What an wonderful experience and achievement.
The pupils of Primary 5 to 7 showcased and shared all that they had learned about safe use of the internet, including protecting their identity and cyberbullying at a workshop for parents. It was presented by the pupils in an interactive and informative way. We had a high number of parents come along on the evening and the feedback from them was very good – “Very informative, ..excellent,…very good, I learnt a lot, … thought provoking, …a good starting point for discussion at home.” The only complaints being that it wasn`t on long enough. Thank you to the staff and pupils for the preparation, planning and presentation of the workshop which was very worthwhile for everyone involved.
