Class Whalsay organised the secondary assembly today. It was all about people who help us in the local community. The class made up a slideshow of all the people who help us and set up a quiz for the classes to take part in.
Thanks to Monsignor Monaghan for coming to see us and introduce the assembly. He told everyone that he was a friend of Dr Isobel Mair and she would be proud of the new school.
In August 2011 Mrs Wallace set IMS classes the £10 challenge, to see who could raise the most money for school funds. Classes Whalsay, Shetland and Orkney successfully clubbed together to create and raffle a Luxury Christmas Hamper. Following the success of this they have taken on the challenge of setting up and running a tuck shop for staff in IMS. After a brain storming session they voted for the name – Mair for Us. Following extensive market research the produce was bought and priced. Now opening day has arrived! The shop opened from 11.30 to 1pm, providing a range of treats to buy, with pupils from these classes working hard to ensure a high quality service. The pupils have high hopes for a successful, money making tuck shop!
Check out today’s edition of the Evening Times. A 2 page article all about our new school and the official opening. A great tribute to the late Dr Isobel Mair whom the school is named after. Dr Mair is fondly remembered in the local community and her memory is kept alive by the school and it’s fantastic facilities.
Isobel Mair School were delighted to welcome the Mair brothers for the official opening of the new school.
Ranald Mair gave a very entertaining speech all about Dr Mair’s life and her involovement with the local community and the school and how delighted they were to still be involved after all these years.
Congratulations to everyone in Isobel Mair School on the official opening.
