Thank you from our Parent Council

The Parent Council have been working on a top secret mission ! 

They have managed to get in touch with some parents and pupils and between them, they have made this wonderful video.  Although the Parent Council were unable to include all pupils (they only had contact details for those they know personally) I am sure that everyone agrees with the sentiment and they have asked us to share the video with you.

No Need To Speed

This week is Road Safety Week (16th-22nd). The theme this year is “No Need to Speed.”

The JRSOs have made a PowerPoint with some challenges to promote Road Safety and this has been sent to all classes to view with their teachers.  You can watch it here too and use the links listed below to complete some of the challenges.

Look out for sheets coming home later today! There will be an information sheet for parents and a challenge sheet for pupils.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing any photos of what you have been up to.

School Closure

Shetland Islands Council’s Children’s Services Department is closing some of its schools and Early Learning and Child Care Settings to children and young people from Monday 16 March to Friday 20 March for operational and resilience reasons. Dunrossness Primary school will be closed to pupils.

We have issued learning at home packs with each child. There is a letter inside each pack explaining what we would like pupils to do. If your child is absent today and does not have a sibling in school, please come and pick up your pack from school. The office will be open on Monday from 9.00am to 3.30pm.

Children’s Services will be issuing further information to parents and carers at the start of next week. We will endeavour to keep you updated.

If you need to contact the school for any reason, please use the Dunrossness Primary School email address.

Thank you for your understanding,

Andrea Henderson
Head Teacher

Netball match report

Last week the DPS netball team played their last two fixtures in the ‘South’ primary league.  The team for this fixture was Becca Williamson (GS/GA), Hayden Thomson (GS), Isaiah Christie (GA/GK), Carla Johnson (WA/WD), Callum Morrison (C), Hannah Rosie (WD/WA), Alex Christie (GD) and Robbie Henderson (GK).

First up was Hamnavoe against Dunrossness.  The DPS team settled really quickly and had some excellent attacking play, putting them 5-0 up at half time.  In the second half, they continued with the attacking play. Even with some extremely tight defending from Hamnavoe’s GD, DPS stormed through with a 10-0 win!  After two games’ break, Dunrossness was up against Sandwick.  The first half was hotly contested, with some great play in the middle third.  However, both teams struggled to score and half time ended 1-0 to Dunrossness.  After a half-time pep talk, Dunrossness set off on a mission and stormed through the second half to end the match 9-0 up.

Dunrossness have won all their games in the ‘South’ league and are therefore THROUGH TO THE FINALS!  The other finalists are not yet known and the date is to be confirmed.

Happy coaches, happy team!
