Dear Parents and Children,
I do hope the festive season finds you well and healthy and that you are getting prepared and looking forward to the big day. It’s certainly all go here at Inveravon and the stage was set up in the hall last week which means we can get our show well and truly rehearsed now. This year you can all look forward to enjoying “A Magical Christmas Journey” and I’m fairly sure you will all have a good idea about what that will involve……stars…angels….shepherds etc etc! As ever our enthusiastic pupils are putting their hearts and souls into rehearsals and it is sounding great even at this early stage.
The concert will be held on Tuesday 16th starting at 7pm and followed by the usual festive refreshments to which you are all welcome. The children will need to be in school for about 6.30 in order to get into costumes etc. There will be no raffle this year as everybody has given so much already. We are all looking forward to this event and the children are very excited about performing to you once again.
Last weekend of course saw us all in school on Saturday for what was our first ever and extremely successful Christmas Fayre. The atmosphere in the school was joyous and everyone seemed to be having a lovely time. I daresay you will have heard that we made £958 which is a staggering amount for such a small school. I must thank each and every one of you for giving so generously and for making the day such a tremendous success. Many thanks also to the children and the staff who worked tirelessly to make it happen and to ensure that the standard was high.
The school looked lovely and was very welcoming for all the good folks in our community who came along to support us. It was just a great day and the warmth of community feeling has left us all with a rosy glow and feel good factor. What a great way to welcome and celebrate the season of advent.
We are going to be making the wreaths today so foliage a plenty will be strewn around the school as we get going to fulfil the orders. I am really looking forward to flexing my creativity skills and I am sure to be kept right about how to make them properly by the children who really do know what they are doing.
As you know we decided not to go to the Panto in Inverness this year and the children have instead opted for a trip to Baxters to see Santa and to enjoy a pancake and juice. They wrote me very persuasive letters asking if they could go and I was only too delighted to say a great big YES! The cost of this is £5.99 per child and thanks to the Smartie money coming in we are
able to go. How exciting!
Pupils Christmas Party Friday December 18th. Party clothing can be taken to school to change into after lunch.
All pupils will go home at 3.15pm after the party.
Church Service with Glenlivet Primary Monday December 21st to be held at Inveravon Church at 10.00 am – All Welcome and please join us for coffee and a mince pie back up at the school.

From all of us at Inveravon Primary
