On Tuesday, the P7s came back to school to collect their belongings and their leavers gifts from the Parent Council. This also gave them the chance to snap a couple of photos.
Yesterday, we celebrated the end of term with an online party. At the end, Mrs Laird was delighted to award Thomas and Christa with the P7 Citizenship Award. This award recognises two pupils who have been responsible citizens and who have made significant contributions to the life of the school. Many Congratulations Thomas and Christa!
Mrs Laird also surprised Miss Mullin with a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the P7 Parents!
Dear P7 Families,
I have greatly appreciated your kind words, patience and generosity over the last seven years. Your lovely words, emails, cards, gifts and flowers mean so much. As you probably know, saying goodbye to this very special group of children (especially in these circumstances) has been hard for all of us, but I know that they are ready for high school and will be very well looked after by my colleagues at GUHS.
On Tuesday, the P7s need to bring their Chrome Book covers to hand back to the school. They can then collect their belongings and leavers gift(s) and allow Miss Mullin to bid them a very fond farewell (albeit a physically distanced one.)
Weather permitting, Miss Mullin will hang lost property on the fence, for ease of checking and collection.
The P7s have decided to have a virtual end of term party on Thursday. Please note that this will be at 11am, which is a bit earlier than they are used to.
The suggested activities for this week can be found below (as well as in the P7 Google Classroom.)
When our P7s collect their belongings (and drop off their Chrome Book cases) on Tuesday, they will each receive a gift from Glenurquhart Primary School Parent Council. The Parent Council have bought each of our P7s a Casio Scientific Calculator, as recommended by our colleagues at Glen Urquhart High School. This will be an important piece of equipment for their secondary education.
We are hugely grateful to our Parent Council for their ongoing support and generosity, and to Lynn Milton (Chairperson) for organising the purchase of the calculators.
As Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings will involve a lot of time on video calls with GUHS staff, I have deliberately suggested low-tech options for the remainder of the time this week. I have also cancelled our Wednesday, Thursday and Friday P7 class video calls. Today (Monday) the class video meeting will go ahead as normal.
As always, these are simply suggestions. The timetable for the week is here:
