Poppy cascade at Ben Wyvis

Just a note to remind parents and carers that there is an Open Afternoon at Ben Wyvis Primary on Friday 5th October from 1.45 – 2.30pm.

Please arrive at the school via reception. All visitors should sign in before entering the school.

During the afternoon session, the whole school will be making poppies for a cascade which will be put up in the front foyer of the school.

Nursery will not have an open afternoon, but will be organising ‘stay and play’ sessions for after the holidays and will also make poppies to add to the cascade.

We invite any community group too to add to the poppy display. Poppies need to be no bigger than A5 and can have writing on them with names.

We look forward to seeing you all!

Well done!

We are very proud of our children today. Despite the wind and the rain, our County Sports team have done brilliantly, won lots of medals and the overall shield this year!

We couldn’t have done this without the input of Mrs Barlow, who not only teaches the P4 – 7 sports, but also gave her time to coach the children. Thank you also to the dedicated parent helpers and staff who also supported this and many other sporting events.

The children, staff and parents arrived back with the shield to cheers of celebration and lots of smiles.

Well done to all. A sporting achievement that we are extremely proud of.
