***Booster Seats***

This is just a quick post to ask if I could borrow a couple of booster seats for tomorrow morning – three would be great. I know it is short notice, but if any parents could help us out, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much.

***Visit to Fort George***

I have taught many pupils over the years, but I have never taught a child with a better historical knowledge than Archie. It is truly exceptional! After our World War 1 trip a couple of weeks ago, Archie suggested a trip to Fort George. I thought it was a great Idea, so I have managed to arrange a special workshop for Class 2 at The Highlanders’ Museum on Wednesday 9th November (12.30-14.00). It should be a brilliant experience. Permission slips will be out soon. Thanks, Archie!

Video Posts

I’ve just found out that some people didn’t realise I post videos on the blog. If a post has a triangle in the centre, you just need to click it to play. If you haven’t seen Jake’s video from yesterday, check it out (four posts down). It’s fantastic!

***Change of Plan***

Unfortunately, our regular bus company have cancelled our transport to the Farr Play Park tomorrow. Another company have quoted us a ridiculous figure – one I can’t justify paying. As a result, only Class 1 (P1-3) will be attending the opening ceremony. Mrs MacPherson and Mrs Mackinnon will transport the children by car and taxi. Obviously, that means Class 2 will be staying in school with me. I have explained it to the children, and they understood completely. What’s more, I will be taking them on a trip to Fort George very soon to make up for it!  More details on that to follow.

***Parent Council Meeting***

I would like to suggest Monday, November 7th (6pm) for the next parent council meeting. If that is convenient with everyone, please let me know.The first item on the agenda will be appointing a new Chair, as Kenny has decided it is time to step down. I’m sure you will all join me in thanking him for his excellent support over the last few years. It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come under his tenure.
