This morning, our 4 Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs), Becca, Hannah, Drew and Cole went down to the Boddam Hall to try out a speed gun. They learned about the importance of maintaining a safe speed, and even got a run in a police car. Thank you to Chris and Lauren for coming to work with us today.
This morning, Mr John Swinney visited us and had a tour around the school. Mr Swinney is the Deputy First Minister of Scotland and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills.
He chatted to lots of pupils about their learning and had time for a quick chat with staff too.
We had a pupil from every year group help to show Mr Swinney around: Logan, Innes, Freya, Magnus, Evie, Carla and Archie did a fantastic job. Logan and Innes gave him a copy of our Children’s Improvement Plan and a little Shetland Gift.
On the 31st of May the JRSOs announced their competition. Primary 1 – 3 had to colour in a cycling helmet and Primary 4 – 7 had to design a road safety sign. Over the week, the JRSO kept an eye on the entry’s to see how everyone was doing.
On the 7th of June the JRSOs judged the entry’s and it was very hard to choose between some. It was so hard to choose, that there was a joint second in the 1 – 3 competition!
In the 4 – 7 competition
First place was Carys.
Second place was Lily-Jane
Third place was Cole
In the 1 – 3 competition
First place was Fiona
Joint second was Georgia and Freya
Third was Alexander

Today the P7s in school were let loose on the library windows! They drew a variety of characters from different books and have made a wonderful job of it too!
We’ve had a super start to our P7 ‘Staycation’. We did a little Geocaching before getting sidetracked on the Scousburgh Sand for the rest of the afternoon – it was beautiful and warm so a perfect way to spend some time!
A beautiful spot near Spiggie beach!
Geocaching, but can’t give too much away about the exact location, you might be able to guess!
Well done to Alexander in P1 and Isla in P3 for completing a cycling challenge! They have both cycled 25 miles throughout the month of May. They have beautiful medals to show for their efforts. A fantastic achievement.
They have done this through a website (raceatyourpace.co.uk) where there are different challenges to sign up for. Something to think about over the holidays perhaps.
