Victorian Games

Hopscotch Picture

Primary 4-7 have been reading Hetty Feather as part of their Victorian topic. 

They have drawn hopscotch grids in the playground and followed the rules of the game. 

It was much trickier than they thought it would be!

BACK TO SCHOOL - a digital child protection campaign

Access to Free Period Products

As you may be aware, Argyll and Bute Council made provision during the lockdown period for children and their families to order Free Period Products online.  We continued to make this on-line ordering facility available throughout the summer holidays and beyond the re-opening of schools to the present.

Jeans for Genes

I am very pleased to advise that we have raised £44.45 for Jeans for Genes day!


The children and staff took part in the fund raising day and wore jeans or other suitable clothing to school on Friday 18th September.  The children learned about genetic disorders and how they can occur. 


We also entered a competition designing a new pair for Jeans for Bugs Bunny who celebrates his 80th Birthday this year.
