Parent Survey Reminders

Just a final reminder about our parent surveys before we break up for the October holidays.  We had a great response to the School Dinners questionnaire and now have all the information we need for this.  Thank you.

At the same time, we put out a questionnaire about Emergency Contacts for COVID-19.  Please remember about this one as it is essential that we know who to contact in the event of a pupil developing symptoms at school.  For ease of access, the link to the survey is here:

Finally, and just as important.  We have another questionnaire about home learning and your family’s access to the technology to make it work.  It is really important that you complete this questionnaire, especially if your access to hardware like laptops and ipads is limited.  The information we collect from this questionnaire will help us to target any help available where it is most needed.  You can find that survey here:

Have a good break!

Primary House Captains

In the past few weeks Primary & have been busy preparing their House Captain speeches. This year, their speeches were recorded on ipads and all classes watched the videos in their own classrooms. Pupils then went to cast their votes out in the corridor to a polling station.

The Team Captains were reminded of their responsibilities as a team captain and the rest of the class were reminded of their responsibility to support their captain and to work together as a team.

Well done again to all Primary 7s for their hard work in preparing their speeches.

So Much to Sea competition

During the summer holidays ‘So much to Sea’ ran a competition inviting bairns to tell a tale based on Shetland Seafood – set in the present day about a fisherman, an underwater adventure or in the past during the Haaf or herring eras.

We are delighted that Zak and Tom both received certificates and won prizes for themselves and for their stories and a voucher for the school. We are very proud of our two storytellers and look forward to buying some local stories for the library with the school book token.

Here they are with their certificates and you can enjoy their stories below
