Just a little reminder, this Friday the buses will be dropping all of the pupils off at the Boddam pitch for our Walk and Wheel Challenge.
We are all going to walk together, following the path to the school.
When the buses stop, pupils will need to stay seated so that one of the JRSOs can explain to everyone what will happen when they get off the bus.
If any parents are able to come and help us on the day, please get in touch with the school.

Another body part this week…’eyes’
Maximus, you’ve done a great job with this sign!
Our Dunrossness Euroquiz Team were excited to take part in the Shetland Heat today. We won’t hear any results until next week but we want to congratulate them for studying in their own time to prepare for the day and for the amazing support and encouragement they gave each other along the way. They scored extremely highly in the languages round which is fantastic! Whatever the result, we are proud of you all! Thanks also, to Lily who prepared but could not take part on the day and to Mrs Colvin who sat with them through the test.
Your new headteacher has finally arrived, yesterday! It has taken a while to go through a lengthy recruitment process and then at the final hour, a dose of covid delayed departure for a few days. However I am here now and feeling very welcomed, by the children, staff and the whole community. Thank you. I am very much looking forward to getting to know you all and I hope you will take time to make yourself known to me. Please forgive me if I do not remember your name and which child is yours- it will take a while to make all the connections. I am looking forward to hearing your ideas about how we can move forward together- to recover from the impact of covid and build on the excellent work of Mrs. Henderson and the wonderful team here at Dunrossness.
With very best wishes,
Mrs Gina Finch
We recieved an email from Beatrice Wishart this week congratulating us on our latest Eco Flag, she submitted a parliamentary motion which can be found here:
Well done to all pupils and to Ms Scanlan for her efforts too!
Well done to Sandness Primary too!
The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
Thank you to everyone that donned bright, odd (and even Christmas) socks!
We’ve started our day sending Ms Henderson off in style! We are hoping to give her a happy and fun day to remember us by!
I recently sent out an email regarding this survey, if for any reason you have not received it please let me know.
Shetland Islands Council is planning to ask all pupils in P5 to S6 to take part in a survey about their health and wellbeing. The findings will help Shetland Islands Council to understand the needs, strengths and possible concerns of children and young people, which will help plan future improvements to local services. Parents will receive a letter providing more detailed information about the Census, and the opportunity to let us know if they do not wish for their child to take part.

This week, at the request of the pupils in P2/3/4, we have ‘brain’.
Thank you Kayden for helping me this week!
