Ms Henderson is going to donate £75 to the Brake Road Safety Charity which is enough to pay for 10 nursery schools to receive Brake Charity resources. This will help teach life-saving road safety skills to children under the age of 5! Post written by Magnus,Hannah & Anders

Coffee Morning

We will be holding our annual fundraiser on Saturday 9th November from 10.30-12.00.

There will be saasarmeat and bacon rolls, homebakes, stalls, puzzles, games as well as our hampers raffle.

This year we are raising money to improve the acoustics in the hall. Currently there is nothing to absorb the sound, meaning it can be a very noisy place during lunch times and lessons.

The P7 Enterprisers will be selling their wares to raise money for their Loch Insh trip or staycation.

SMUHA

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!

SMUHA 2019 – Da Jarl's Squad visits the Dunrossness Primary School bairns in the Public Hall. (The tune competition was fierce.. and…. "A Heads Up"….allegedly da roars were heard in da Fair Isle 😉 (Please tag and share)

SMUHA Plans

It is almost time!  My favourite day of the whole school year fast approaches.

This year we have decided to immerse ourselves in all things Viking for a week!  SMUHA is such an important community event that we felt that dedicating all our learning for the week was a fitting way to ensure the bairns maintain their enthusiasm.  They are the future of the festival after all!

This year we have gone all out!  We have our usual P7 Jarl Squad.  Their preparations are well underway but being kept top secret!  There are 3 other squads from P5 and P6 who will be entertaining us on the day. The galley is ready and I have to say she is looking great – well done John and galley boy Kempie!  We have an enterprise team who will be producing key rings, a programme and home bakes for sale on SMUHA day. We will split the proceeds of our enterprise venture between school funds and SMUHA.

SMUHA Week:

We have the following timetabled events but many other activities are happening during the week.  If you would like to help with any craft, story writing, supporting enterprise groups or assisting our squads, please get in touch.  We would love to have your input.  It is a fantastic community event and we would be delighted if you would like to join us.

Monday:  Shetland Dancing for all primary classes.  Visit from Jarl, Liam Mullay to see our P7 Jarl squad.

Wednesday:  Shetland Museum Outreach visiting.  All primary classes will have a session.

Thursday:  Mr Stephen Renwick and Mrs Esther Renwick will both be visiting to talk Viking and demonstrate some archaeology.

FRIDAY – SMUHA

9.15:  Muster in the school playground (programmes for sale)

9.30:  March to Boddam Playing Fields

10.00:  Galley burning

10.30:  Boddam Hall to watch squad acts, have refreshments and have a chance to buy our fabulous key rings
