Once again we seem to be hurtling through this term at an alarming rate – although we are now all starting to look forward to the summer holidays!  We hope the children all told you what fun we had at Aigas Field Centre on Wednesday, and we were extremely lucky with the weather.  There’s plenty more to fit in before we break up………

School Trip

Our end of year trip will be to the Highland Wildlife Park at Kincraig on Thursday, 28th June.  Please ensure your child is at school on time as we will leave sharp after registration at 9am.  We will not be returning to school until 5pm, so please arrange to have your child collected from school – there will be no school bus service home.

Pupils require suitable clothing with school jumpers please, good shoes for walking, snack and packed lunch.  Once again, packed lunches are available from Mrs MacDonald if required – free to P1-3 and the usual cost for P4-7 – or you can choose to supply your own.  Please indicate on the attached form if you require a packed lunch from school.  Waterproof jackets/sun cream too please – this is Scotland!!  There is also a shop on site so pupils may take money and will be given the opportunity to have a look round.

New Greenhouse

Fyrish Substation are continuing to work with the school as promised although progress has been slow due to their workload.  They have erected the frame for a new bottle greenhouse in our school garden which we are delighted about.  Please now could we ask that you all save and send in any 2 Litre bottles please to enable us to make this work?  Thank you!!

End of Term

Friday, 30th June will be our last day of term and school will close for the summer holidays at 12noon.  There will be no school lunches that day as Mrs MacDonald is away on a course.  This also means we are unable to supply toast so please provide a morning snack for your child if they require one.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

School will re-open on Tuesday, 15th August to all pupils.
