Yellow Thursday!

On the last day of term, we are inviting pupils to participate in a non uniform day and wear yellow to support the Highland Hospice. We would also like you to consider sending a small donation with your child/children in aid of the charity’s Project Build Appeal. Thank you.dd

New Blog Record!

9975604_origI would just like to pass on my sincere appreciation to everybody who visited our blog yesterday. Thanks to a little help from our friends, we had 40 visitors and 191 views on Sunday. For such a small school, that is brilliant. It is incredibly important that we keep celebrating the successes of Team Daviot in the local community – so thanks again for your support!


Fantastic Gymnastics!

Team Daviot were fantastic at the Scottish Schools Championships today. They produced some stunning performances, and I am so proud of them all. What’s more, Evie smashed her floor and vault routines and scooped a silver medal in the individual competition. Second in Scotland! Wow! Speechless!

Thank you, Yvie’s Mum!

This was such a nice reply I had to post it….

This is just lovely, Yvie thoroughly enjoyed her first day with Team Daviot. She can’t wait to get started full time after Easter. Everyone has been so welcoming and the children are very kind and friendly. She said, ‘I want to stay in my new school forever.’ 

Sci-Ku Competition

The 2015 Edinburgh International Science Festival is bringing back the popular Sci-Ku competition – a project designed to celebrate science writing in all forms. This year, they are challenging pupils to write a Sci-Ku (Science Haiku Poem) on the theme of light. Check out a few of Team Daviot’s entries below. They are awesome!Capturehk1

Scottish Nationals on Saturday!

I’m just adding a quick post to wish Daviot Primary School’s Gymnastics Team lots of luck for their competition on Saturday. They had their last training session today, and at the weekend, they are off to Perth. It really is an incredible achievement that the girls have made it to the Scottish Schools Floor and Vault Championships. I would like to commend them on their effort and enthusiasm. No matter what happens on the day, they can be very proud of their success. Well done, girls. Everyone at school is proud of you too. Go Team Daviot!


STEM with Mr Elder

I would just like to say a very big thank you to Mr Elder for his wonderful lesson with the pupils today. Team Daviot is so lucky to have a parent who is a STEM Ambassador (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) – and we are so grateful for the time he gives to the school. The deadline for the Junior Saltire entry is April 30th, so we are all looking forward to seeing some more of Mr Elder over the next few weeks. IMG_4347

Dental Health Visitor

This week, Daviot Primary welcomed Marion MacDonald into school. She came to talk to the pupils about the importance of brushing their teeth correctly. A very important message indeed! We will also be brushing our teeth in school to maintain our dental health.
