Annual update forms

Your child will have been given (or will be given tomorrow) an annual update form. It is very important that you return this form as soon as possible, so that we have the correct information and contact details for all children.

We are asking that all forms are returned by Wednesday 31st August.

We would really appreciate your help with this.

Ben Wyvis Parent Partnership

A message from the Parent Partnership:

 

EGM Wednesday

7th September 2016  6.30pm

Your Children Need Your Help

The Parent Partnership Committee are stepping down, if we do not have new members your school will NOT have a Parent Council, and parents will NOT have a voice.

In the last 3 years the Parent Partnership with your help have raised £25,000 for our school, mainly through fundraising and some from grant applications.

The Parent Council fought to keep our School Crossing Patroller. They have also supported the efforts to keep much needed school support staff.

With ongoing Highland Council cuts, the role of Parent Councils are more important than ever

The money raised has benefited all of the children at Ben Wyvis including the nursery.

Some things that the money has been spent on:

Outdoor Play Equipment, Library, Panto Trips, Sports Equipment, Sports Clothing, Drama Club Equipment, Science Experience Days, Drumming Workshop, Nursery Equipment, Peace Garden, Christmas Party Gifts, Donations to Classes.

PLEASE COME ALONG ON THE 7th SEPTEMBER AND SUPPORT YOUR CHILDREN AND THEIR SCHOOL, EVERYONE IS WELCOME

Our first monthly newsletter has been written, so please take a note of the dates this term. If you have any queries, especially if you are new parent / carer,  please just ask.

A letter will be sent from each class over the next few weeks to give you more information about what is happening in classes this term, so please look out for this too.

Parent Information Evening – August 23rd

As you may be aware, the Parent Partnership elected members are standing down, but as  of yet, we do not have confirmed replacements.

To find out about the role of the Parent Council, the Highland Council have agreed to run a parents information evening on the 23rd August 2016 at 6pm. Mrs. Steph Wood our Quality Improvement Manager for Mid-area is going to be presenting and it will give the parent forum (every parent of a child in the school) an opportunity to ask lots of questions and find out more about how you can help.

Please come and join us. The role of a Parent Council is vital in the school and we would like to encourage as many to join with us in moving the school forward, promoting our vision, supporting the children and also fundraising.

Rosemarkie Beach Day

The sun shone and children, parents and staff arrived at school with their buckets, spades and shades. We had our day organised with precision and parent helpers were plentiful. Thank you so much to all who supported our day at the beach.

Our local Ranger, Jenny had set up for rock pooling, Phillip at the Rosemarkie Beach Cafe had the ice-cream (and weather) on order and we had also arranged visits for some children to Groam House Museum, while others explored the Fairy Glen and Chanonry Point. Sports activities were great fun and the children played on the grass and sand.

A huge thank you to Spa Coaches too, who helped us with the logistics of transporting our children. The local community had also lent us some group gazebos for the day and those who wanted could have their lunch in the shade.

It was commented on by staff at the places we visited that the behaviour of all Ben Wyvis children was exemplary.

A final thank you to all the staff who worked hard all day to engage the children in learning and fun.

Enjoy the photos
