Hockey Festival

Ten P7 pupils from Sandwick, along with a group of P7s from Dunrossness and Cunningsburgh, spent today in Brae at the annual Hockey Festival.  The day is organised by Active Schools and is a great chance to mix with other pupils form across Shetland, while  having some fun developing hockey skills!

It was a brilliant day, the sun shone, the rain stayed off and our pupils demonstrated their great spirit, determination and super sportsmanship.  Well done to all involved, and to Mrs Smith for her continuous support!

Let’s Circus – Good Times for Happy People!

We had such a fantastic time with our visitors from Let’s Circus last week.  As well as providing amazing entertainment and laughs, it was great to hear about how the members have come from all across the world and have had so many different experiences!

Each member of the Let’s Circus group shared an important message about trying hard and following your dreams.  We really can achieve anything if we believe in ourselves and put our minds to it!  Remember that skill building takes time, and ask for help when you need it.  Most importantly, don’t give up!

Another brilliant part of hosting the group was the reminder from them of what a special place we live in.  The Sandwick, and Shetland, community is so strong and supportive.  It is an incredible place to be and we thank you all for making it that way!

Thank you, Let’s Circus, we can’t wait to see you next time!

A busy Friday lunch!

We had a very busy canteen at lunch time today!

As well as P6/7 Family Lunch and Red Nose Day, it is Alison’s last day with us.  We’d like to thank her for all of her hard work in looking after the pupils in our school.  We will really miss her but wish her all the very best in her new job!

Thank you to all of our families and friends of the school who came along to share lunch with some of our P6/7 pupils this week.  It is a lovely chance to visit the school and have a nice, sociable lunch!
