Dear Parents / Carers,
We are pleased to inform you that we have appointed a new Deputy Head Teacher at the school, Ms Margaret Young. Ms. Young is currently working in Perth and Kinross and will be able to start at GPS in August when school reopens and will not be class committed. We look forward to welcoming her to the Grantown Team.
We are also gaining a probationer teacher, Miss Lucy McElenery, and the school will move to 9 classes, enabling us to have smaller class sizes.
We are pleased to welcome back Ms Vanessa Walker, who is returning to Grantown from Abernethy Primary, starting in August.
We wish Everyone a happy Summer break. School reopens 17th August 2021.
Lost property will be displayed along the front wall of the school at 12.30pm today for any parents wishing to look for lost items.
Our P7 pupils will be doing the traditional conga around the playgrounds on Friday at 11.30am. Parents of P7 pupils are invited to come and watch at the fence but please can we ask that you stay outside of the playground, wear face coverings, and physically distance as much as possible. Thank you!
As school closes at 12.30pm on Friday there will not be the same lunch time, but if anyone still wishes to have a school ‘grab and go’ lunch that day this can be ordered on the morning. The choice will be fish finger roll or ham sandwich.
We were delighted to learn today that the school has again been successful in renewing its Green Flag Eco Award! This is a huge achievement and we are so thankful for the hard work of pupils, staff, parents and the community.
The feedback we received from Eco-Schools Scotland said:
“A massive congratulations on achieving your 6th Eco-Schools Green Flag Award! I must comment the work that Grantown Primary School has been doing over the last year or so. It is a joy to read how the pupils, the school, and the local community have been getting involved with your Eco-Schools journey. Also, the work you have been able to carry and/or continue doing during the year of the pandemic is fantastic and your staff and pupils should be very proud of themselves for what they have been able to accomplish.”
