I would like to say a very big well done to our Inter-school sports team. First, congratulations must go to Kacy for picking up a bronze medal in the 600m. I was particularly impressed with Evie who battled through the high-jump with a very sore knee. I was so proud of Kirsten too – for stepping into a race with relative giants when she ran the 150m and the 4×100 relay. However, all the girls were brilliant – and they represented the school magnificently.
This week, Yellow and Blue tables produced some brilliant writing based on the story of the Gingerbread Man – and it was great to see some of the characters they had created during their painting session today. I loved the Carrot Cake Crocodile idea – but Jake’s painting of the Cookie Caterpillar from his story was awesome! I’ve been so impressed with Jake since he started with us full-time. His effort and enthusiasm have been wonderful, and his rapid progress across the curriculum has been truly amazing. It is also lovely to see him enjoying his art sessions now. I really think he has a talent for the subject. Well done, Jake. I’m so proud of you!
I’m sure everyone is aware, but I just wanted to post a quick reminder about the school’s INSET day on Monday. We will be open as normal on Tuesday morning. Have a lovely weekend, everyone.
I am just adding a quick post to wish our Inter-school sports team the best of luck tomorrow. I must also say a very special thank you to Kirsten for stepping into Rory’s shoes in the relay. If anyone wants to go along to show their support, the event is taking place at Bught Park. The morning session is scheduled to begin at 9.45am. Go Team Daviot!
It was great to see Kacy leading the learning with Tim today. It was another brilliant JL session – but it was the team-building game that Kacy taught the group (and Tim) that proved to be the most fun. Well done, Kacy! We are going to be so sad when you move on to the IRA.
It was lovely to see Shiloh again today. She is settling in so well to Team Daviot. It was also nice to hear that she really looks forward to her visits. We really look forward to them too!
I was so proud of Daniel today. He was very brave when he faced his fear of mini-beasts. Conquering a fear is one of the most challenging things anyone can do – so to see Daniel do it at the age of five was fantastic. It really did make my day. Well done, young man! You are a star!
It was brilliant to see our Junior Saltire Team working so well together today. They have written their project presentation completely independently – a tremendous achievement. Well done!
The organisers of the International Science Festival contacted me yesterday – and I was thrilled to discover that their graphic designers have created an amazing design to accompany Evie’s Solar Sci-Ku.
I think they have done a fantastic job, and I am so pleased that Evie’s work will be getting even more recognition. Well done again!

Team Daviot’s three Junior Road Safety Officers had a wonderful trip to the JRSO Exhibition today. The JRSO programme encourages road safety peer education and promotes partnership working between pupils, parents, teachers and other school staff. So I was very happy to hear all the wonderful ideas the pupils came back with to promote road safety in our school. I also had to laugh when I heard Rory had volunteered to introduce the Road Safety Magic Show. Apparently, the audience had been offered a £50 bribe to step up to the front. Unsurprisingly, Rory was first up! Sadly, he didn’t get his money. But well done, Rory. You did us proud!
