Thank you and Merry Christmas from Glendevon


As you can imagine, it has been a busy couple of weeks in Glendevon.

We have been having lots of fun in the run up to Christmas – enjoying making all our lovely decorations and shortbread for our Xmas stall. Thank you to everyone for their support.

We have also been enjoying some new stories about Christmas during our story massage group – Alison has been working hard to make the stories fun to enjoy: The night before Christmas and When Santa got stuck up the Chimney.

We have been enjoying listening to and joining in some Christmas songs and we have been rehearsing for our show next week – so we hope that you can come join us and see how well we have been doing – and maybe be have a laugh too!

Glendevon have been enjoying making some Christmas art to take home and decorate the house.

Have a lovely holiday when it comes and we wish you all a good New Year.

Best Wishes


Pentland – walking, planting and enjoying fresh air

Hello from Pentland

Last term was very busy. We were doing lots of walking, exercises and activities outside. This term we’re continuing our daily walks and we’re out for playtime every day too.

We recently joined a local tree planting group in the park. It was quite a long walk there and back. We had to dig a hole plant the little tree, put in a support cane then cover it with protective tubing. We planted two trees then it was time to get back to school for lunch.

International Stress Awareness Day

To help make sure none of our friends were stressed, Lomond invited all the classes to our Spa.  Lots of people came throughout the day and were able to choose what they wanted to do to relax.  Some people chose the foot spas and sat together while listening to relaxing music.  Others opted for a hand or foot massage in the sensory area.  It was a very relaxing day for Lomond with all the massages and we hope everyone who came along enjoyed it and felt relaxed and stress free too!

2018 Interschools Sports Event

This year at Beatlie, we held the second annual Interschools Sports event. This year our sport was rounders.

Children from the primary departments in Beatlie, Pinewood and Ogilvie Schools sent small groups of children to form two teams for the day. The children and staff all really enjoyed the event, as well as getting to meet up with some new faces!

We would like to say a massive well done to all of the children who participated in the event, and a huge thank you to all of the staff from Pinewood, Ogilvie and Active Schools who helped make the day such a success, as well as the parents who visited to cheer on the children.

See you all at next year’s event!
