***Daviot Danceathon***


This week is Guide Dogs Week, and I would really love to do something in school to support this incredible charity. So, on Friday, I am planning to do a sponsored danceathon with the pupils. For a small donation, the children will be invited to come to school in non-uniform (or even party clothes if they would like). I will then challenge the class to dance non-stop for an hour (obviously, our youngest children will be allowed breaks). Over the course of the next few days, I would love it if you could help the children to collect some sponsorship money. Even a small amount would be a tremendous help.

Our target is £50 – which could buy an ‘Off to School’ kit for a puppy moving into their first stage of training.

Zeb, the guide dog Daviot Primary sponsored last year, is doing brilliantly – and it would be fantastic if we could help another puppy this year.

Next term, I am hoping the school will receive a visit from the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association. I think they will be bringing a guide dog along with them. I can’t wait!


***Museum on Thursday***

I’m just adding a quick post to remind parents that Class 2 (P4-7) will be visiting the Next of Kin exhibition at the Inverness Museum & Art Gallery  on Thursday morning. The bus is scheduled to leave school at 9.30am. We will return before lunchtime.

***Healthy Push***

I am just adding a quick post to remind the pupils to bring their healthy snacks and water bottles everyday next week. Class 2 also needs to remember their trainers (and school shoes) for the Daily Mile. A spare pair of socks might be a good idea too!
