School Summer Picnic/ Tempest Photos

The school summer picnic will take place tomorrow. A reminder that there will be no other lunch menu choice. Weather permitting, we will be eating outside.

Class photo proofs were issued last week. If you wish to purchase a copy, please complete the order form and payment by MONDAY 18th JUNE. Mrs Anderson will be sending orders away at lunchtime.

Class 1 Daviot Shop

Class 1 have been exploring money in Maths, so it was lovely to see the girls taking it upon themselves to set up their own shop. They have worked very hard to name and price each item on sale, and would like you to know that the Daviot Shop is open for business! 😉

 

 

Scottish Engineering Awards 2018

Well done to ALL the children who received their certificate from the Scottish Engineering Awards. Each child was individually graded on their illustration and pitch letter. They all did a super job.

A special mention to Ruaridh S, Shiloh and Calum for having their work showcased at the event.

No 5 Star Gold Award this week as we are planning to celebrate as a school on Friday instead!

GO TEAM DAVIOT!

THIS SATURDAY – Daviot Tough Mudder

David Elder and Steven Bone are taking on the challenge of the Tough Mudder to raise funds for more outdoor equipment/ sheds. Here is their story –

‘Daviot Primary School is a small rural school just outside Inverness. As a school we are trying to improve the outdoor learning experience for all the children. Last month many parents got together with children and staff to improve the grounds. We did a power of work to clean, paint and plant. Unfortunately there is very little outdoor play equipment and the storage sheds are in bad repair. There isn’t enough money in the school budget to replace these things so Dave and Steve are going to do Tough Mudder this year to raise funds for our wee school. Katie and Archie who are both 10 years old will be doing mini mudder to support their dads. Please sponsor the boys and Katie! Your sponsorship would be very much appreciated. Thank you’
