Children In Need

We have had a super day at Bell’s Brae raising money for Children In Need.  Children  came to school in their onesies or pyjamas and made a donation.  Some classes iced cakes and sold them at the Tuck Shop. At assembly the p1-7 classes learned more about the charity and how the money raised is used. We raised £336.79! Thank you to all who helped to raise this fantastic amount.

RNLI Competition Winners

Members of the Lerwick Lifeboat crew and Stormy Stan, the RNLI mascot, joined both assemblies last week to announce the winners of the recent competition to design a pennant.

The lucky winners were Lily, Zack, Julia, Lois, Luke, Isabelle and Torquil who all received a RNLI polo shirt and a pennant featuring their design. Unfortunately Zack and Isabelle were absent on the day!

Torquil’s design will be given to visiting boats and groups by the RNLI Lerwick branch.  One is already on its way to Norway!

Police Visits

  • Yesterday all the P4-7 classes had visits from Police Scotland. They came to reinforce class work about Road Safety and Internet Safety.


The visits were informative and interesting.  We would like to say thank you to Police Scotland for their input.

Loot for Lerwick Success

Huge congratulations to the Pupil Council who have secured funding of £780  at the Lerwick Community Council’s Loot for Lerwick event this morning. They will use their funds to buy games and equipment for all the pupils to play with during wet playtimes.  All the pupils who attended today did an excellent job of telling members of the pupils about their bid.

Big thanks to Mrs Johnston and Ms Henry for supporting the Pupil Council with their bid and for giving up their Saturday morning to attend the event.


Halloween Party

It was great  to see so many pupils, parents and grandparents at the Parent Council Halloween Party tonight.  Superb constumes and great pumpkins.  Special thanks to Mr and Mrs Bell for judging the competition.  We know it was a hard decision.

We hope all the bairns enjoyed their dancing and games.  They certainly looked like they were having fun! 🙂

Have a look at the well deserved winners below:

Wear Blue Day

Wear Blue Day – Friday 10 November 2017

The Shetland Community Safety and Resilience Board and the Shetland Planning Partnership want to give a strong and clear message that there should be a zero tolerance approach to any form of bullying behaviour that harms children, young people and adults.  The focus is on keeping people safe, supporting those harmed and challenging any form of bullying behaviour.

National Anti-Bullying week for 2017 takes place on 13th to 17th November 2017.  At Bell’s Brae we are keen to show our support for a ‘Bully Free Shetland’ and will be doing so by discussing anti-bullying at assembly, following this up with class work and taking part in ‘Wear Blue Day’ on Friday 10 November 2017.   We hope you and your child(ren) will be willing to also show support by coming to school next Friday wearing something blue.   We have blue wrist bands available for pupils to wear who wish to show support but have nothing blue or happen to forget on the day.

Parents are encouraged to take part in a survey on ‘bully free Shetland’ which focuses on adults.  If you wish to participate please find the link below:

Thank you for helping us to support National Anti-Bullying Week in Shetland.
