The week beginning 20th August is Health Week (many thanks to Mrs Baillie for organising everything!). Please come to school in your joggers. Polo shirts and school sweatshirts are still to be worn, as usual. We’ll be out of school on Monday for bowling (wear trainers please) and on Thursday for golf (sunshine on order!). Let’s all make an effort to have healthy snacks next week!
P7 Transfer Ceremony on PhotoPeach
Tonight was our traditional Primary 7 Transfer Ceremony. All the pupils looked incredibly smart in their shirt and ties as they filed in to take their seats at the front of the hall. Mr Barnes began by speaking about seven Olympic values and how the current year group had embodied these values. Miss Skinner, Mrs Macniven and Mr Barnes presented the books to each of the pupils. The Primary 7 choir gave a moving Proclaimers medley while several pupils told of their memories of Mr Barnes. A highlight of the evening was some of the comments by made the Primary 1 buddies about their perceptions of the Primary 7s- whether girls or boys made the best paired readers, whether if was worth going to Loch Insh if there was a possibility you could fall off the bus and whether all the fun trips in primary 7 made up for the fact that they did not get to use the Playbase! Next was the vote of thanks from the Primary 7s, acknowledging all the people who help them on a daily basis. Afterwards Mr Sutherland spoke about his expectations and hopes for the next part of their educational journey. Finally while the parents were invited to have tea and coffee in the dining room, the Primary 7s escaped to their area to have a well deserved treat and examine their new books!
Well done Primary 7- I know all your teachers are very proud of you and wish you every success as you move forward to the HIgh School (seven weeks tomorrow as Mr Sutherland reminded you!).
Unfortunately we have to announce the cancellation of the P4-7 Sports today, Friday 15 June.
Our apologies for any inconvenience this will cause. It will now take place on Monday 25th June at 1.15pm, weather permitting.
Following last night’s blog post we packed our bags and had a fantastic disco, organised by our great instructors. We all hit the floor and felt those rhythms – well sort of! As a wee extra `last Loch Insh’ treat Mr Barnes was taken on an mountain bike ride on some very expensive wheels. He had a great time and emerged in the disco very mud splattered. Once we were boogied-out Johnny shown us a video made from his favourite video clips from our trip. It was great trying to spot each other. So looking back on our week there has been some tears, some injuries, some soggy pants, some late nights and lots of amazing experiences. Thank you to all of P7 for your company, for the laughs and for such a great trip. You did it !! Here are the last photos, Miss Brodie.
Day 4 – Loch Insh on PhotoPeach
We made it and have had a busy and wet start to our week. We will post photos and videos of our exploits here everyday and plan to also add a podcast update too. So watch this space and all comments much anticipated by us all!
P7 pupils went back in time today and celebrated VE Day to commemorate the end of their WW2 project. All staff and pupils dressed the part and brought in food of the time, made flags to wave, put up bunting, practised their dance moves by jiving, sang songs and listened to the memories of veteran visitors who had lived during WW2. Great fun was had by all!
Five performances later and a very proud and exhausted p7 pupils and staff come to the end of a hugely succesful musical. Well Done to all and especially all those behind the scenes who helped with lighting, staging, costumes, crowd control, art work and many other esential cogs that kept the wheels turning. What a team!
