Class 1 Local Visit – Parent Helper Needed

On Wednesday 18th December, we have arranged for Class 1 children to visit Daviot Church. We will meet Russell, who will be our guide and share information about the church’s history and talk about its role within our community.

This outing is part of our current topic learning and will give all children the opportunity to explore a place of worship in our local area.

We will be leaving school just after our morning break (10.45am) and will return in time for lunch at midday. As we are planning to walk to and from the church, we will require a parent helper to accompany us. Please could you get in touch if you are available.

No letter will be issued as this is a local visit, which is part of each pupil’s consent form.

If you have any queries or do not wish for your child to attend, please get in touch via email or by calling the school office.

Many thanks,

Miss Costa
