The Community Quiz Trail

Teachers have hidden quiz questions all over Menstrie. Look out for these posters while you are out on your walks around the community. There are 10 stations, each with three questions (one for P1-2s, P3-4’s, P5-7’s) as well as a code letter so you can decode the special word.

Remember social distancing of 2 metres and stay safe when crossing roads. A map will be published next week with the locations of the 10 stations to help you fill in any gaps.

You can write your answers down on scrap paper, on your phone or you can download and print the Quiz Trail Answer Sheet.

Good luck and enjoy.

This week is Mental Health Week.

This week is Mental Health Week. More then ever it is so important to be aware of our Mental Health and how we can try new things or make routines to help us stay mentally healthy. 


Here are some great tips for children and adults to try this week to be kind to ourselves and others to help us keep mental healthy. 


Why not give them a go as a family, or share some tips with those you are keeping in contact with over social media. Share with us or your class what you tried. Let us know what you do already and share how this could help others.
