We are very excited to start our yoga club at school after 3 teachers and 1 parent attended recent training, provided by Active Schools. We are even more excited to have our own yoga mats for the club – kindly donated by Kayci’s mum, Rebecca. Rebecca organised a raffle through her business, KMR Candles, and all proceeds went towards the purchase of the mats. Thank you Rebecca! Our yoga club will start on Thursday 23rd May after school and run for 6 weeks.

The Argyll and Bute Literacy Experience (ABLE 2) is now live. With information for parents / carers, learners and for staff it’s the place to go for support and resources on all things literacy related. Learners from school age to adult will find useful links and resources while parents and carers will find advice and help to support them on all stages of their child’s journey from pre-birth to Highers and Advanced Highers. Staff will find examples of good practice, links to useful websites and guidance on a range of strategies from reciprocal reading to supporting learners with literacy difficulties within the classroom. The website isn’t yet fully populated so there will be some gaps, but please leave feedback and comments or email Clare Bryden, PT Literacy and let us know what else you’d like to see included.
