Skiing Update

The school will be updated on the situation on Wednesday morning of this week. At present there is not enough snow due to the ground being so warm. However, snow is forecast during the week. A note will go on the blog on Wednesday morning and a text message will be sent to all parents. Thank you for your patience.

Cycle Training

Cycle Training takes place during the last term for children in Primary 5. This is an activity that they all love to participate in but without parent helpers we are unable to run the programme. A training day is to be held on Wednesday 27th March at Grantown Primary. We have spaces for 8 people and the training will be provided by Cycle Scotland. If this is something you think you would like to help with and are able to give up a few hours on the occasional Wednesday afternoon in term 4 then please visit the Cycle Scotland website. If you register with them then you will be able to see what the course entails and how to book yourself onto the course. Any problems please just get in touch with the office.
