There are still tickets available. Some fantastic raffle prizes on offer.
Sorry for the delay in the 1st blog post of this session. It is amazing how quickly the weeks are passing.
It is great to see all our pupils settling in to their new classes. Everyone seems to be happy, healthy and making the most of their learning experiences.
Please keep checking the blog posts. We have added a page for NOOSC and for PE and we hope to undertake staff training soon so they can begin posting.

Due to the weather forecast, we plan to do the Voar Redd Up tomorrow (Wednesday 1st May 2019) instead of Friday.
Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately.

Wow! What a day!
Once again SMUHA did not disappoint. We started our day with our junior Procession, led by our P7 Jarl Bjorn Ironside. (Shane Black) We marched behind our galley, Ocean Raider, to the Boddam Sports Field for the burning. It was excellent to see so many members of the community there to join in.
Once the burning was over we all headed over to the Boddam Hall for refreshments and to see our four squad acts. Everyone did a brilliant job! They were very entertaining. Thanks to Mrs Leslie for my introduction – ‘Just got in from the Isle of Skye……….)
Our SMUHA week leading up to the main event was a huge success. The enterprise group, with support from Mrs Wells and Miss Budge, made a fantastic programme, key rings and home bakes to sell. The final total is not in yet. The profits shall be shared between SMUHA and school funds.
We had the folloiwng visitors in school:
Maria Leask – Shetland Dancing
Yvonne Reynolds – Shetland Museum and Archive
Stephen Renwick – Children’s Services
Esther Renwick – Shetland Arts and Moder Dy
The children and staff had a fantastic week and we will definitely plan learning in this way again next year.
The visit from Jarl, Liam Mullay, and his squad was a perfect end to our week. The squad had clearly worked hard and they all looked amazing. They were in fine voice and Liam was a great sport, taking part in our ‘Name that Tune,’ competition. He tricked me into roaring as loud as I could! He hadn’t made the other head teachers do that! I do believe Loki is the Norse God of mischief! Liam may have been taking some advice from him.
SMUHA just keeps on getting better! The community spirit and support for the school and for the main festival is wonderful. The inclusive nature, the friendships and the sense of fun has us all looking forward to next year!
