Reading Information Evening Wednesday 4th October

We were pleased to welcome parents & carers to school to find out about how we teach reading in school and how they can best support their children at home. We had several members of school staff on hand and were also very fortunate to be joined by Jill Reid, Network Librarian, and Natalie Cooper, Senior CLD Worker, who spoke about supporting your child at home and support for adult literacy.

For anyone who missed the evening you may like to watch our powerpoint presentation below, or pick up a reading information leaflet from reception.

Macmillan Coffee Morning Tuesday 26th September 2017

Well done to our primary 3 class with Mrs Brand who held a fantastic coffee morning today in aid of Macmillan. Massive thanks go to the WRI who supported them serving teas and coffees; to all those who donated cakes and biscuits; and of course to everyone who came along to enjoy a cuppy and cake and help us to raise some money for a great charity. The final total raised was £422.96 so a very big well done to all involved.

The Big Conversation 22nd September 2017

Many thanks to those parents, carers and grandparents who joined us for our ‘Big Conversation’ event this morning. Hopefully those that managed to come enjoyed the opportunity to share their views. For those who were not able to join us this morning, a copy of the prompt statements for the discussion will be sent home with your child today, Friday 22nd, in the hope that you can return your contribution to school by Monday 25th September for inclusion in our response to Aberdeenshire Council. Thanks in advance.

Welcome back to some outdoor fun – August 2017

Pupils have been delighted to return this session to find some fantastic new additions to our outdoor play equipment. This equipment was funded through our successful bid for Your Voice, Your Choice funding. Thanks to members of the Pupil Council for their efforts presenting on the day and to all those who voted for our bid.

We’re glad to say that our sun dance worked and the weather stayed mainly dry for our Sports Day this year on June 12th. We all had a lovely day and it was a very close result, so well done to everyone who took part, but congratulations go to this year’s winning house – Puffin.

Today, Wednesday 29th March 2017, we held a special assembly to say goodbye to Mr Smith. The recorder group played for us; pupils, staff and representatives from the Parent Council made presentations of cards and gifts; and the grand finale was provided by the choir and Kieran Fotheringham (playing the pipes) singing Highland Cathedral. We look forward to sharing this wonderful piece of music with parents and carers at our end of term service next term.

 

Christmas Panto December 2016

The children had a wonderful time at the panto on Tuesday 13th December. Thanks to the parent council for their support to allow us to host MandM’s fantastic production of Jack and the Beanstalk – it was a very enjoyable morning, made even better with ice creams after.
