Good afternoon. Another busy week here in Dunrossness Primary! We welcome Louise Fraser and Molly Budge to school for work experience from the Anderson High.
I was out yesterday at a Head Teacher Development Day. Some very interesting presentations and thoughts for future developments. It is always good to attend these days to hear about local and national initiatives, of which there are many at the moment!
Today we have had a visit to our nursery from Mrs Audrey Edwards from Schools Service and Mr Craig Clement, from the Northern Alliance, who is looking at the model for expansion to the 1140 hours free early learning and child care for all 3-5 year olds with our collaborative from the north of Scotland. He seemed impressed with our setting and the flexibility we are able to offer parents. He also saw some very happy bairns playing outside.
Bairns in all the classes are busy preparing for our Learner Led event next Tuesday. Keep an eye out for your invitations!
On Wednesday we lots on! P7 go to SJHS for a transition visit, P4/5 are off to Mareel to see ‘Baba Yaga’ and P5/6 and the remainder of P6/7 are off to visit the archaeological site at Brew with Mr Gerry Bigelow. The pre-school children are having their first school dinner in the hall with the others. Mrs Leslie is out on a training course.
Thursday starts with an assembly from Cheri Young from the Scripture Union. Mrs Leslie is out on a training course.
On Friday P4/5 are off to the Sumburgh Lighthouse for a visit.
The school is looking lovely with all the displays and bairns work on the walls. We very much hope that lots of you will come along next Tuesday to see what is going on!
