Wee MacNessie Book Launch – Inverness Town House – Saturday 25th January

We love stories in P1/2 and this looks like a fun, family event to get your children inspired to read and explore another language/culture too!


On Saturday 25th January, local author Pauline Mackay is launching her latest Wee MacNessie story in the Inverness Town House starting at 3pm. ‘Wee MacNessie and the Lion Dance’ celebrates Scottish and Chinese culture.

It’s a FREE event! Local children will be reading and singing in Mandarin and there will be a guest appearance from Wee MacNessie himself!

Festive Fun

Welcome to Term 3! It is lovely to see all the boys and girls back at school, happy and ready to learn!

Here are some late photos from before the holidays… We had a lot of festive fun during that final week of the term!

P1 & P2 Christmas Party

Tomorrow is our Christmas Party day!

Our class will split off into two groups for our party.

Children are invited to wear party clothes for this event if they wish!

In the morning, P2s will join with the other P2 class (Miss Mackenzie) for their party. Please can the P2s come to school dressed ready to party and also bring a change of warmer clothes for playing outside at break and lunchtime.

In the afternoon, P1s will join with the other P1 classes (P1A Mrs MacQueen and P1B Mrs Macaulay) for their party. P1 pupils can bring a change of party clothes to school and Miss Shimmield will help the children get ready at lunchtime or they can go home for lunch if they wish, but ready and back at school for 1.30pm.

Miss Shimmield is the lucky one because she gets to party all day! Yipee!

See you tomorrow!

We are looking forward to a very seasonal end to the week with our whole school Christmas lunch on Friday (13th). As a reminder, this year we are also having a Christmas jumper fundraiser on the same day. In exchange for a donation all pupils and adults are invited to come to school wearing a Christmas jumper. All funds raised on our Christmas Jumper Day will go towards the school’s chosen charity for this year – Highland Hospice. Thank you in advance for your support.
