P6s become ‘Young Leaders’

During Term 1, Primary 6 have been undertaking weekly “Young Leaders” training sessions with Active Schools Co-ordinator, Sanna Aitken. The children have been learning lots of new games and how to teach these safely, as after the October holidays they will be given the opportunity to be playground “buddies” for Primary 1-4. P6s have really risen to the challenge, and led a P.E. lesson in the gym with Primary 2 before receiving their “Young Leaders” certificates last week.  They have set a great example as they settle in to life on the top floor at Bell’s Brae!

Going Wild!

Pupils from our Early Learning and Childcare Setting, with a little help from some P6 pupils enjoyed planting some wild flowers on the small hill outside the setting.  We hope that over time this will improve the area and attract some birds and insects.

Special thanks to Olaf Isbister and the Planticrub for their kind donation of flowers and for providing the equipment for our young people to use.

Thank You Lerwick Port Authority

We have been extremely lucky to receive a donation of  20 trees from the Lerwick Port Authority.  This donation from the Port Authority offsets their paper usage.

This morning Lerwick Port Authority were on hand to support our staff and pupils to plant these trees at the back of our school car park.  Once these trees grow we are hoping that as well as enhancing the area it will reduce the amount of grass cutting required.  All helping the environment.

Look at the feedback we received from Port Authority staff about our young people:

‘The pupils were excellent. They were friendly and enthusiastic, confident with people new to them and very keen to participate. Everyone got a chance to get involved with all parts of the planting process and they worked very well together. Their behaviour was a credit to themselves and the school.’

P4-7 Sports Day

We were delighted to be able to have our P4-7 Sports Day yesterday.

It was great to see  most of the pupils enjoying themselves and trying their hardest.  Everyone’s contribution was important and supported their team – Thorfinn, Olaf or Magnus.

One the day Olaf were the winning team and captains Kali Thomson and Leo Murray Wiseman were proud of accept the shield on behalf of their team.
