Winners of the Highland Council Quality Award for Supporting People to Thrive and Learn.

Last night I was delighted to attend the Highland Council Awards 2018 at the Town House, Inverness. Myself, Mrs Cormack, Rector of Dingwall Academy and Mr Green, PT of English were nominated for the award ‘Supporting People to Learn and Thrive’.

This was directly related to the Literacy Ambassadors project that runs between Dingwall Academy and Ben Wyvis Primary School.

In recognition of the hard work that was required to submit an application and  achievement in winning, we have also been presented with a Gold Award.

We couldn’t have achieved this without the Senior Students from Dingwall Academy, the hard work of colleagues and the pupils involved at Ben Wyvis Primary.

A huge thank you to all.

Christmas card greetings

The Christmas cards that are being sent home will be blank, so that everyone can write their own greeting.

Please do look in school bags, as the template cards have been beautifully drawn by children.

Some children did decide for various reasons not to complete a card, but most did.

 We hope that we might also raise some funds for the school too by selling the cards .

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!
