Our class has been studying the Highland Clearances. We have been learning about their lifestyles and cultures. Mrs Mairi Morrison came to talk to us about the Arnol Blackhouse and we learnt lots! Therefore we went on a class trip to the Arnol Blackhouse.


Our class joined English primary one and two to visit Arnol. We split up and visited  the white house and black house. We learnt lots from Mrs Morrison and her colleague, Donald Morrison. There were many interesting sights to see in the blackhouse. We enjoyed it thoroughly!

Thank You

Congratulations to EP7 who raised just under £200 towards their school trip by organising a movie afternoon.  The EP7s did a fantastic job and showed a huge amount of enthusiasm and dedication when organising the event.  We would also like to extend our thanks to all of the parents who contributed baking for the day.  Your generosity is very much appreciated.  Congratulations also go to David Anderson GP5 who won our fantastic chocolate hamper!

Movie Afternoon

EP7 are holding a movie afternoon on Friday 7th March.  We will be showing Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.  The entry will be £1 per ticket and there will also be a tuck shop before the movie starts.  In addition to this we will be selling raffle tickets for a chocolate hamper.  These will be priced at 50p per strip.  All money raised will go towards the P7 trip in June.

School Trip

We are starting to get very excited about our school trip in June.  This week we got to vote to decide what six activities we will do while we are there.  There were lots of different options so now we just have to wait to see if we managed to get our top choices! 

EP7 are organising a film afternoon to raise funds for the trip.  We are currently doing some market research to help us finalise the details.  GP7 will also be helping us out on the day to organise everything.  They hope to organise another fundraising activity in April.
