Congratulations to this week’s star award winners. Awards were given out for: positive learning, supporting friends, working hard, great homework and in the case of Mr West for running a great time in last weekend’s marathon. We were also lucky enough today to have a member of the Dundonnell Mountain Rescue team lead the school assembly. The school learnt several interesting facts about the team and were able to ask questions following the presentation. Can your child remember any of the key facts that were talked about?

Pupils in the P3, P4, P4/5 and P5 classes were invited to Smithton Free Church to learn about how the Christian faith celebrate harvest time.
It was a fun and interactive morning, with the pupils getting involved in a variety of different activities:
- Demonstrations about the science of food from “Professor Brainbox”
- Learning about Bible stories through a DVD, iPads and storytime
- Snacktime (always a firm favourite!!)
A very big thank you should go to Ali, Professor Brainbox and to all the other helpers at the church who did such a splendid job in providing a great learning experience and for looking after us so well.
Congratulations to all our pupils who took part in the River Ness 5K Fun Run yesterday. A brilliant effort. Many thanks also to Holly who volunteered for the Highland Hospice throughout the day at a water station towards the end of the 10K and marathon course. Fantastic!
P5 enjoyed an exciting lesson when they followed their own instructions for creating interesting potions! Would you want to have Dog’s Tongue (pineapple) in your potion?
A reminder that school is closed to pupils on Thursday 22nd September and Friday 23rd September as these are Inservice training days for staff. Enjoy your long weekend and we will see everyone on Monday 26th September at 9.00am.
