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.
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
Please can all parents and carers visiting us this afternoon be very considerate of the local residents in Gair’s Croft. We would ask that if you can, please walk or if you need to use a car, park away from areas that need to be accessible by residents.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
