There was a Drumming Workshop held jointly with Milton School, organised by the STG, at the Secondary School building on Scoraig on 13th June. Pupils helped with the catering.
These are some accounts of the day written by pupils:
The drums were African drums made of the skins of animals. The drumming was fun. They were small compared to a table. Some were big compared to a chair. I felt happy. Thank·you to Milton School for coming.
Many thanks, from all at Scoraig School, to everyone who supported Drum Fun event, and to everyone who has given their support to the school this year.
It is good to be back. The children have been busy bees and the garden and classroom are looking lovely.
Dates for your diary:
IEP’s ,for some pupils, pupils will be sent out next week and, as always, you will be invited to come in to school and discuss these with me. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Margaret Beaton, Hostel Provision, is hoping to come out on Tuesday 18th June. You are invited to come along and meet with her. Details to follow.
Thursday 13th June– Drumming event. This will be lots of noise and lots of fun. It will take place in the Secondary building and some pupils and staff from Milton school are coming over to join us. We look forward to meeting them. Many thanks to all who organised and funded this event.
Wednesday 19th June- A Parent Council meeting has been arranged for this date at 4 p.m. in the Primary School building. All welcome to attend. Please let Joany know of any items for the agenda, in advance so that she can send out the agenda prior to the meeting. I am happy to discuss the timetable and look at resources as requested.
The Feis ladies will be returning to Scoraig to do a whole day of music on 25th or 26 th June.
Cinema nights will resume when the nights get darker ! The board is not good unless it is dark. In the meantime enjoy spring and summer. Hopefully the sun will shine.
We will be sorry to say goodbye to Alex at the end of this term. She is a valued member of the school and we will all miss her. We wish her well at Ullapool and are sure that she will meet lots of new friends.
Many thanks to all who supported the school in my absence. Since my return the children have all been very helpful and considerate.Thank You
Many thanks to Susan for organising the recent Scottish Ambulance visit for pupils. It was very worthwhile and we learned a lot. The children also got a chance to use the Annie dummy. They gave sensible answers and did all of the practical activities very well, showing that they had listened. The ladies were very impressed.
Thanks to Bill for ferrying us across the water to our swimming lessons and to all in the STG who gave funding which allowed us to pay for the bus journeys this year. Sharing with Badcaul was a successful transition event as the children got to know one another more.
Thanks to all who helped at the wind turbine workshop lunches and who donated money to the school to pay for the drumming. This will be a spectacular event and we are all looking forward to it.
Thank you to Martha for doing a great job of transforming our garden. In line with the curriculum for excellence the children are doing active learning and lifelong skills. We hope to have enough vegetables for a good pot of soup !
Do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss anything.
