As the Scottish Government’s introduction of 1140 hours of childcare is to be introduced by 2020, Dunrossness Nursery is taking part in a pilot project to look at one option as to how this may be provided.
There will be a meeting on the 24th January 2017 at 6pm in Dunrossness School to discuss the pilot project proposed for our Nursery for the session 2017/18.
We are really keen to discuss the proposals with parents of our current 3 year old group and children eligible to register in February this year.
Please pass this on to anyone in the catchment area to whom this is relevant.
We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.

Assessing children’s progress
We have had a great afternoon of cooperative learning in house teams. The pupils were tasked to share some holiday news and then come up with individual and some school based resolutions – all using positive language. I will……. or we will ………
Once we have the list of school resolutions we will share them with you. I wonder how we will monitor these? I think our Pupil Council may have some good ideas to help us all stick to them.
There was some really good, attentive listening going on in the hall. It is not easy when there are over 100 children all in one space! I am always encouraged at how well our pupils support each other.
Welcome back everyone!
I hope you have all had a lovely festive break and are now ready to re-enter the real world!
We are looking forward to the ‘hard work’ term in school. There are lots of things going on!
Joy Duncan is visiting on Wednesdays to do some drumming instruction.
We have our wider achievement groups planned on Thursday afternoons. Parents are most welcome to come in and see what is going on or offer some help in the classes.
The SSPCA are visiting this week to do a whole school assembly and then some follow up workshops with P4-7.
Harry Rose will be working in P2/3 on their topic on Monday mornings.
We are all looking forward to SMUHA again this year on the 10th March.
I am sure more events will crop up – as they always do. We will keep the events calendar on the blog up to date as well as informing you in the usual manner.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us at school with any questions, queries or concerns.
