A Big Thank You to Malakoff Ltd from the Pupil Council

The school received a donation of 4 large tyres!  The Pupil Council were asked if they could make use of them for the school.  We decided to paint them and make them into planters for the school grounds.

Johnny and Jess (PC Chair and Vice Chair) wrote letters to local businesses asking for advice on which type of paint to use for the job.

Malakoff Ltd very kindly donated paint for the tyres and super advice on what to do with them. We are very grateful for their help as we are on a tight budget. We went along on Thursday to thank them and accept their kind donation.

RAF 100

We are thrilled to be involved in supporting the RAF celebrate their centenary.

One of the most exciting events taking place is the RAF100 Baton Relay which sees a specially designed baton visit 100 sites associated with the RAF in 100 days.  As part of this relay the baton will travel to RAF Saxa Vord in a Typhoon fast jet from Lossiemouth  this afternoon.

To make the event even more symbolic the jet will carry out a low-level jet flypast over Bell’s Brae Primary School this afternoon at approximately 2.15pm.   Squadron Leader Daniela Nowalski has been co-ordinating this event with staff at the school and will visit the school this afternoon with a replica baton.

Working with the RAF’s partner the Big Ideas Company we have received resources to support their ‘Remember RAF100 Project’ and involve our learners in this celebration.

Primary Netball League

Huge well done to the Tirricks netball team for getting in to the finals of the Primary Netball League.  They competed today against Dunrossness and then Scalloway to end in third place.

The league has been running over the winter with an impressive 16 teams taking part.

The netball players all showed great commitment, teamwork and sportsmanship.  Big thanks to Active Schools staff, the school coaches  – Leah Henry, Louise Birnie and Anne Wood and to all the parents/careers who kindly transported the players to locations throughout Shetland and who supported them during their games.
