On Wednesday 21st of June Primary 7’s from all round Islay and Jura went for their very first induction day to Islay High School. We had to get the bus over to Bowmore at 8:18. We had to go into the hall to find out our houses. The McBeans from Port Ellen Primary are Natalie Logan, Ruaraidh Macdonald and Eva Munro. The Bryce’s from Port Ellen Primary are Struan Coltart, Darren Hamilton and Kaya Middleton. The Winnards from Port Ellen Primary are Kaitlyn Clarke, André Cruz and Ellie Mackie.


After that we got to write out our timetable. This year our classes have been split so there is a 1BM class, which is half of McBean and the whole of Bryce. There is also 1WM class, which is the rest of McBean and the whole of Winnard. We had the senior children help us around the high school to take us to our classes. We got showed what classes we would be tacking after the summer, and we also got a little taster of what we would be doing after the summer. 1MB get different teachers form 1WM, which was quite different because we always got to have the same teachers.


I really enjoyed High School and was quite sad to have to come back to Primary School but I am really looking forward to going to Islay High School after the summer.

Endeavour is a long term personal topic that has to be ambitious. For my Endeavour I have chosen to do skin care and the beauty industry because I want to learn how to look after my skin and learn about beauty. I have learnt about animal testing and different ingredients in beauty products. I have also looked at bad/harmful ingredients. I have done a leaflet on different allergic reactions you can get when you use the ingredients in natural lip balm. I have also written a letter to Ailsa Hayes and written a recipe for a breakfast themed face mask. I have also started a sway that I will hopefully keep  adding to as I progress with my learning.

cyhokqkxuaax_kkOn Friday 25th November, Port Ellen Primary School went down to the Co-op beach and did a beach clean with Re-Jig.  They collected 32 bags of litter and made an astonishing £300 pounds that will help the school.  They found litter that was covered in ice, which they found very interesting and made it difficult to dig up.  As you probably know Port Ellen Primary has citizenship groups. Doing the beach clean was helping our community which is part of being a good citizen.
