Happy Friday everyone!
It has been a lovely, busy week at school. It’s getting to that time of year when the weeks fly by. It was especially lovely to see P7 pupils enjoying their outdoor learning day at Fairburn Activity Centre.
Whole School Trip
We are pleased to inform you that our Fort George trip has been confirmed. It will take place on 1st June 2023. Trip details will be posted on Google Classroom.
Families are asked to contribute £2 per child towards the cost of the transport.
To make the trip more exciting and meaningful, we would like to ask families to engage in home learning opportunities prior to the visit. The resources have been created by the Historic Scotland team.
Sport’s Day will be held on Friday, 2nd June at 12:30pm at Inverness High School.
We are aiming to leave Central shortly after midday.
Children will need to have a have a packed lunch on this day. If you require a school packed lunch, please advise your child’s class teacher.
As there is no fixed seating area at IHS you may wish to bring something to sit on.
Classes next year
The children will meet their new teacher for next year during the last couple of days of term once staffing is confirmed.
The charges for breakfast club and out of school club are being increased to £5.05 per hour or £13.10 for a session over two hours with effect from August 23.
Wear Yellow Day
We have an unexpected guest this morning! The Highland Hospice Bee visited the children and shared information about how they help our community. Thank you to all families who donated.

‘’For the past few days we have been learning to add prefixes and suffixes. We have also been researching about the Highland Hospice. We have been creating posters for Yellow Day. We have learnt about vertebrates and invertebrates, so cats and dogs are vertebrates because they have a spine and worms and snails are invertebrates because they have no spine.’’
P6/7 Mary, Chloe
‘’In class we have been doing compass points and directions on maps. We know how to use our compass points to get from one place to another. In spelling we looked at the 100 most commonly misspelt words so that we know how to spell them properly.’’
P7 Emily, Lillia
‘’When we were at Fairburn we were building rafts as a team. We had to use our paddles to get around the island in under 10 minutes. We had a great day out with lots of fun.’’
