Weekly Update : 10 December


I appreciate that over the past week with increasing news of the new COVID variant that there are many questions about how we respond to this.  Earlier today, you will have received a letter from Nicky Grant with an update from the Council.  As we have been throughout the pandemic, we continue to be guided by the Highland Council and the Health Protection Team.  Any information that we share is directed by them.  I appreciate the frustration that information has not been quicker in coming, however, it is an ever changing situation and as soon as information is sent to us, we will share it with you.

With Christmas fast approaching, I would just like to highlight a few of the events taking place next week.  On Wednesday, weather permitting, each class will visit the square to share their Carolling in the Community.  A very draft timetable is below in case you wish to pop by. Please ensure that current guidelines around social distancing etc are adhered to at all times.  As part of our risk assessment, class groups will be kept separate from members of the community.  Radio Skye will broadcast the performance for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own homes as well.  In addition to Wednesdays event, each class will also visit one of the local care home between now and the holidays to perform their carols, outdoors, for residents to enjoy.
