Thursday 22nd December


Dear Parents/Carers,

 After a very busy few weeks at the school, there are just a few things to make you aware of before the holidays.

 School Photographs

The school photographer has been in touch this morning to apologise that photos have not yet arrived as he had intended.  Due to delivery delays, he only received them back from the lab late last night and was unable to get orders posted out in time.  They will be with us at the start of term.


One of our long standing canteen staff, Lesley, finishes today after several years at PPS.  We wish her well and thank her for her time with us.

 The catering department are recruiting to the role, which would be on a relief basis, pending the advertisement of the post.  The post for Cook 1 is 18 hours per week and anyone interested is asked ot contact Kevin Fraser on 01349781121.

We also continue to await the advertisement of our clerical post.

 Parent Survey

Many thanks to those of you who have completed the Parent Survey issued last week.  The survey will be open until tomorrow when responses will be collated.  A summary of results will be shared and will inform our school improvement plan moving forward. Your views are essential in this and we appreciate your time in completing this.  A link to the survey can be found at the bottom of the email.

 All of us at Portree Primary would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.  We look forward to seeing you all on the 9th of January.
