Weekly Update 27th January 2023


Dear Parents and Carers,

Just a brief update for you this week with a few items to bring to your attention;

Changes of dates

  • P1 health checks, originally scheduled for 30th January have been rescheduled for Wednesday 8th February
  • Flouride varnishing took place for P1-4 and some of P5 this week.  The dental team will visit again on Tuesday 7th March to complete the varnishing.

Primary 6 Parents Evening

Parents  appointments for Primary 6 parents will take place through the school day on Friday 10th February.  Sign up slips will be sent home at the start of next week.

School Closure

Further to the letter issued by Nicky Grant last week, the school will be closed to pupils on Tuesday 31st January due to planned industrial action.

Family Reading Sessions

We had a great turn out for the first of this year’s Family reading sessions last week for Primary 1 families.  These sessions continue today with Primary 2 families invited to join us at 12.15 and Primary 3 families invited next week.

After School Clubs

Shinty and running clubs resumed this week with great attendance.  It is not too late to join either of these clubs and any pupils wishing to start should bring a completed permission form along to their first session.
