P7 Water Safety

This term, primary seven were treated to a demonstration of a sea rescue by the coastguard and police.  This involved a coastguard volunteer  being rescued from the sea at the Sletts.   Primary seven learnt lots about water safety and the role of the coastguard.  They found this extremely informative and were able to use their knowledge and understanding of this to create water safety posters.  Primary seven now all feel confident about the procedure for contacting the coastguard in an emergency.  Many thanks to the coastguard and the police for this very interesting experience.

Lighthouse Trail – a partnership with Lerwick Port Authority

In partnership with Lerwick Port Authority we have been involved in the Light the North, Lighthouse trail.

This trail shines a light across the north-east, Orkney and Shetland with fifty lighthouse sculptures designed and created by some of the UK’s most talented artists.

At the end of the trail, each of the lighthouses will be auctioned off to raise funds for Clan Cancer Support, providing support to people affected by cancer across the north-east, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

The pupils in our current P7 class designed and created a lighthouse which can be seen on display in Mareel.

In order to raise awareness of this trail an activity sheet has been designed by our art teacher, Ms Birnie and the P7 pupils.  Any pupil can collect a paper copy of the activity sheet from Ms Birnie or print off one from below.  Completed sheets should be returned to the class teacher.  Any pupil who hands in a completed sheet will receive a reward.
