Well – I don’t really know where to start!  What an absolutely brilliant day was had by all in Dunrossness Primary!

Thanks to John, Stevie Bruce, Duncan Kidson and Andrew Kemp for all their hard work over the winter to make our galley.  Thanks to Ness Engineering for sponsoring the galley and providing the materials.

We really appreciate members from Jarl Squads past coming to support our procession and thank the torch boys for providing us with the torches.

The Fire Brigade were on standby to keep us all safe – thanks to our local crew.

We had a brilliant performance from our P4 and P5/6 drumming groups – thanks Joy!  I really enjoyed dancing along!

Thanks Annalie Irvine for playing piano for us.

This year’s P7 Jarl Squad did a brilliant job on the day.  They were very well organised and looked fantastic.  Calum ‘Trunsherface’ Mackay was a fabulous Jarl and representative of the school.

All staff and bairns in the school embraced the build up and the events of the day.  SMUHA is a fantastic, inclusive community event and we love taking part each year.  I am sure the children in the local area will continue the festival for years to come.

Finally a huge THANK YOU to all the members of the school community for turning out to support us.  What a superb atmosphere!

3 Cheers for SMUHA – I can’t wait for next year!



School Winter Fayre and Sunday Teas

We would like to say a huge Thank You Very Much to everyone who helped in any way towards the great success of Sunday’s Winter Fair. We have raised £1301.28 for school funds which will go towards resources, trips and visits to enhance the learning experience of all our pupils.

The class hampers were very popular again this year and made excellent prizes.  We would like to thank everyone who contributed to these.  The children feel a real sense of pride for their hamper.

Thanks to everyone who baked, donated items and helped in the preparations and on the day.  For those of you who stayed behind to tidy up, we are very grateful!

We have a really supportive school community without which events like this would not be possible.  Thank you again for your commitment and support of the school.  It is truly appreciated.

Next year we plan to have our Winter Fundraiser on a Saturday morning.   Save the date – Saturday 4th November 2017!
