Help is needed for Etape Loch Ness on Saturday 22nd August.
Several volunteer marshals are needed to cover between the Clansman Hotel and Urquhart Castle from 5am-9am.
Each marshal will earn a £20-£25 donation to their choice of group (e.g. Glenurquhart Primary School)
The organisers are minimising contact on the event but the marshals generally have little to do with the cyclist other than directions and making sure spectators are not in the way.
Police will be in the village, marshals radio/call in IF there is a problem.
It is a CLOSED road – unless escorted no vehicles on or cross the A82.
All gear needed for the day will be provided. Marshals will be provided with information sheets with contacts, their marshal point, how to use the radio and any other information. 3 locations require a flag and whistle, that will be provided (these are warnings for the cyclist)
On the morning, you will meet Mrs McWhirr before going to your post.
Mrs McWhirr requires the marshal contact number and email. This way Mrs McWhirr can contact you to confirm timings and any information you require. She can also provide a link with info for the organisers including where the donations are to go.
Interested? Please email Miss Mullin by Friday 9th July with your contact number AND email address.
CHROMEBOOKS As per Highland Council agreements, all Primary 6 and Primary 7 children are given a Chromebook 1:1 device. All Primary 7 children should return their Chromebooks, with their cases and charger to the school prior to leaving for the Summer. They will be reissued with a Chromebook when they begin the High School.
This afternoon, each of the P7s were gifted with a scientific calculator from our Parent Council. These are recommended by the maths department at Glen Urquhart High School and will be very useful to our P7s throughout their secondary education.
The Parent Council and Primary School Staff wish our P7s all the best as they move on to S1.
Three of our P7s wanted to thank the Parent Council on behalf of all the P7s.
Each year, the P7 Citizenship Cups are awarded to 2 pupils who have made significant contributions to the life of the school. These are voted for by all staff and P7s.
This year’s recipients are Meadow and Joshua. Many congratulations to them both!
In memory of our much-loved “Miss Duncan” we also recognise pupils who have made an outstanding effort throughout the year with the Anne Duncan Memorial Quaich. These are nominated by staff and each nominee receives a certificate.
Our nominees this year are Elise, Calum, Dylan, Maisie, Joshua and Mattthew. Well done to all of them!
Congratulations to this year’s winner, Matthew!
Congratulations to all our prizewinners from Mrs Laird and all the team.
For our last visit to the woodland this session, we started with a mindful listening activity, then played “Flood, Freeze, Camouflage” then worked in pairs/trios to build an eagle’s nest before we returned to school.
Thanks to Mrs MacKintosh and Miss Page for accompanying us.
This morning, Conon and Matthew led a coding workshop, showing P6/7 pupils how to code a simple game. After a few technical hitches, the leaders were able to demonstrate the process step-by-step on the CleverTouch board, which many of the pupils found very helpful.
Sophie led an outdoor art session, using natural materials in our playground. The pupils worked in pairs or trios, and had a choice of mild, spicy or hot tasks to complete in the hour. Sophie wanted to encourage creativity; as you can see the pupils created different images and patterns. It was amazing how quickly the natural materials changed as the day wore on.
We hope you enjoyed reading your child(ren)’s report and profile (online for P5-7) over the weekend. Please can we request that the red profile folders are returned to school by Friday, 18th June so that we can continue these after the break. Thank you.
