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


Dance day Success


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

Easter treat

Easter Treats

On Friday the ladies in the canteen are making Easter Crispy Cakes.  They will be on sale for 50p at the morning break.

Big Pedal Update

This week we have been encouraging each other to cycle, scoot or walk to school. Our Pupil Council reps have been counting our scores and Mrs Webb has been logging our journeys on the Sustrans website. Adults and siblings who are not at school count too towards our totals if they walk, scoot or cycle.

Below are our statistics so far. Today’s journeys will be added tomorrow morning.

The challenge continues for one more week so we need everyone to keep up the good work.

Spring Fayre update

BUT again we need your help. Over next few days you should receive an envelope which we would be grateful if you would complete then return to the school office by Monday 1st April. If you would kindly request the number of tickets you would like (remember you can buy for and/or sell to friends, family & work colleagues too) then we will send these out to you over the coming weeks.  Tickets will cost £1 and they come in books of 5.  All ticket stubs, monies & unsold tickets MUST be returned by Monday 13th May with the draw being held on Friday 17th May.  (The school have very kindly agreed to hold the draw for us the week after the Fayre to allow for any last minute purchases at the Fayre).  Please also remember all monies raised from the Fayre and the Raffle will go to improving the school experience for all our children so all suggestions for where these funds should go are very welcome.
