Learner Led Event 2018

We are now in the process of preparing for our Learner-Led Event and warmly invite you to visit the school with your child on Thursday 27 September anytime between 1515 – 1645. Learner Led Events are a chance for your child to share their learning with you. They will be able to talk you through their learning and share some of the work they have done and how they feel about it.
Please feel free to pop in anytime between 1515-1645. During your visit you will hopefully have time for your child to show you their work, introduce their teacher(s) and show you around their classrooms. Class and specialist teachers will be in classrooms so this will also be an opportunity for you to meet them.
Representatives from the following agencies will be available at this time in our school canteen. This will provide you with an opportunity to find out more about the work they do and how this can be of benefit to you and your families:

Active Schools
Disability Shetland
Shetland Library
Parent Council
Community Work Team &
Adult Learning Service
Citizens Advice Bureau
School Nurse
Early Intervention Service

P7 Screenplay

P7 went to Mareel to take part in the Screenplay Festival.  They watched a powerful film called ‘Step’ which followed the trials and tribulations of a group of Baltimore High School students throughout the academic year.  Being part of a Step Dance Club had a positive impact in all areas of their lives.  Following the film we took part in our own Step Dance workshop.



We have incorporated a dedicated and free “Inflatable Extravaganza” session for people with a disability or additional support need into the BIG Takeover programme. The session would take place from 11.45am – 1.45pm at the Gilbertson Park on Friday 14th September 2018 and the activities on offer would be the following:

Inflatable Extravaganza  – 100ft Assault Course,  Army Assault Course, Gauntlet Assault Courses,  Wrecking Ball, LazerQuest, Target Paintball, Ariborne Adventure, Slip & slide, Land Zorbs and Segways.

It was thought that this could be a slightly quieter session where participants would get more of an opportunity to try out the activities without lots of other participants.

We also agreed to put on a relaxed showing of the Avengers Assemble movie in Mareel  and sought to make sure that the rest of our programme was as inclusive as possible for the weekend.
