Congratulations to the Holm SU Group who came runners up in the Hugh McHardy Memorial Shield Creative Competition. The group worked super hard to create a poster board showing all that we have been doing since starting up last September. The competition was open to primary school SU groups throughout the north of Scotland – well done to pupils on their success!
On Friday 10th May, Gillian Gunn and five girls from the Holm SU group headed to Altnacriche (an outdoor centre near Aviemore) for an action packed weekend! There were lots of fun activities, good food and time to explore the Christian faith together. It was great to enjoy time away with people from our group and to make new friends from other schools across the Highlands! The next weekend away is being planned for September and others from the group will have the option to go then.
As well as the weekend away, five of our group have signed up for an SU week long summer camp!
SU will start up again in September and is open to all pupils in the new primary 5, 6 and 7 classes. Look out nearer the time for more details on how children can get involved.
Please make sure you fill in and return the slip on the back of this newsletter if your child requires a packed lunch on the day the school is closed for polling.
If you haven’t received an envelope regarding raffle tickets, don’t worry as tickets still available. Please ask one of the Parent Council or pop into the school office and we can give them to you.
For those that did return envelopes hopefully you have received your raffle tickets and if not they should be heading your way shortly.
Please remember to be entered into the raffle, all ticket stubs and monies need to be paid and returned to the school office by Monday 13th May.
Hope you all had a fantastic Easter and are looking forward to Spring Fayre
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Performers UK, Dance Artists: Laura MacLennan and Hollie Simpson, and our very own Dancemania for making our Day of Dance a successful one. All children did themselves very proud!! We are still counting the money but the day alone raised more than £350 for the Highland Hospice
On Friday the ladies in the canteen are making Easter Crispy Cakes. They will be on sale for 50p at the morning break.
Primary 5 have managed to earn an amazing 3000 dojos this term. We will be having our whole class reward on Thursday to celebrate this huge achievement.
We will be watching ‘Hop’ and so have decided a few optional extras. Pupils are allowed to take in comfy/ lounge clothes or pjs to change into (please don’t wear to school). They can also take in a blanket, cushion or small cuddly toy if they wish. Pupils can also take in a small snack to enjoy while watching the movie if they wish.
Well don’t on all your hard work and polite manners this term- I am really looking forward to celebrating on Thursday!
On Thursday Primary 5 hosted their creative café for family and friends. We decided to use this opportunity to celebrate our learning of the Jacobites as it was our topic this term. We shared our learning through art, baking, computers and photos. Thank you so much to everyone that was able to join us. We had a great time sharing our learning!
