Welcome back after the Summer Holidays. It is great to see the boys and settling into their new classes, with their new teachers. The children in the nursery are also settling in well and are enjoying every opportunity to go outside to explore, play and learn in the Nursery gardens.
We will be sending monthly newsletters to parents/ carers to keep you up to date with events, curriculum news and dates for the diary. The August newsletter has already been sent out, please get in touch with the school if you haven’t received this. We have discovered that some emails from the school are going into the junk mail folder and may be hiding. Nursery parents/ carers will receive monthly newsletters from both the school and the childcare team.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who helped today and for Mr. Macdonald and Mr. Stewart’s help too.
We are also very grateful for the monies that Ferintosh Parish Church raised for the school. An amazing £1000 to help towards school trips. If you are a parent or carer and know that financially a school trip might be difficult to fund, then please contact the school. The Ferintosh Parish Church money is to help parents if required.
Have a relaxing holiday and remember that school returns on Tuesday 23rd April.
Thank you so much for all your support so far this year and a huge thank you to all those who helped with JRock. It was an amazing achievement – well done to all!

Please be aware of the ‘Momo’ challenge. This is not new, but has resurfaced recently. The Highland Council is very aware of this ‘game’ and has blocked access to the Momo challenge. However, children have access to a variety of devices outwith school and may unfortunately stumble across this. Awareness is the key and deleting the challenge should mean that this is the end of the viral chain.
The Momo Challenge is a creepy character has recently taken over the internet called ‘Momo’, which is the new Slenderman to target children. Momo is a viral challenge which encourages kids to add a contact on WhatsApp. Momo is certainly a mixture of ‘Blue Whale Challenge & Slenderman, in the way it is a ‘creepy’ character that sets challenges that can end with self harm.
