Playground Development Day

Yesterday we had a Playground Development Day where the Eco Committee worked with Clare from Grounds for Learning, Mrs Murray and parent volunteers to improve our garden area. It was a lovely day outside and the garden is looking great.

Thank you to all involved.

Playground Development Day

Playground Development Day will take place on Thursday 19th April.

We hope to complete the following tasks during the day

  • A complete tidy of the garden, greenhouse and shed
  • Clearing rubbish from the pond
  • Planting out new trees, shrubs and bulbs

All welcome, if you have your own fork or trowel and can spare some time on Thursday 19th April we would love for you to join.

Thank you.

Lunch Time Improvements

We have made a few improvements to the lunch time routine which started today.

We know from our recent feedback from the children, that the canteen can be a bit noisy and they wanted to have their own tables. This has been arranged and was put into practice for the first time today. It went really well.

Highland Council Menus have pictures to show what should be on the children’s plates for each meal (please see the link below). This is how we will offer the food to the children. The children will still make their lunch choice in the morning.

We have spoken to all the children to reassure them that whilst we wish to encourage them to try different foods if there is anything they don’t like on their plate they do not have to eat it. We will not be forcing anyone to eat something they don’t want to.

We were encouraged today that there were about 30 children who said they had tried something they weren’t sure of and did like it.

Please note there will be no change to any special dietary requirements.

We would be glad if you could chat about lunch with your child and we welcome any feedback you wish to share. If you have any queries or concerns please let us know.

Thank you,

The Central Team.

 

Judo

As next Wednesday is the last day of term there will be no Judo Club after school on 28th March.

The children have been thoroughly enjoying having this experience and we have loved hearing their progress. Judo will restart after the holidays.

Thank you to Robert Inglis for coaching and running this club.
