A word from the school kitchen – “the Walled Garden are now supplying the school with a box of their fabulous vegetables every Monday. The children get to see the fresh vegetables as they arrive and then eat them raw and cooked at lunchtime. A huge well done to the kids for their enthusiasm – they are eating twice the amount of super healthy vegetables now!” Annabelle, School Cook
“This is marvellous news! It is heartwarming to see local produce on our pupils’ plates and also to see the uptake in school meals increasing and with that there seems to be an increased consumption of vegetables too which is excellent. Thank you to Annabelle and Tekela for encouraging the healthy eating ethos in our school whilst also supporting our Eco aspirations and to The Walled Garden for their wonderful local produce which now has pride of place on our menus.” Wilma Duncan, Head Teacher
Pupils were delighted to be able to go along to see former pupil Emma getting married to her groom, Sandy at the local church last week. The happy couple were blessed with a fabulous sunny day and it was a beautiful occasion for all.
Pupils at Raasay Primary School undertook an enterprise project selling apples which they had harvested from the school garden. The apples had to be collected (which involved some tree climbing!), washed and sorted before being bagged up for sale. Pupils also created their own recipe cards to inspire people as to what they might bake using the delicious apples. The packaging was then stamped with our A.C.O.R.N.S. (All Children Of Raasay Nursery & School) logo. Pupils will be recording the money taken on the stall and they have identified that they wish to use it to fund an end of term outing. Thank you to everyone who came along and supported us – we hope you enjoyed your apples!
We couldn’t sent our P7’s off to High School without a proper send off – so we put on our own version of ‘I’m a Celebrity Get me Outta Here!’ called ‘I’m a P7 Get me Outta Here!’. Our P7 pupils faced various challenges such as ‘Swamp Dunk’, ‘Jungle Buffet’ which included fish eyes, monkey snot, jungle juice and bird poop, ‘Wet Wellie Walk’ and ‘Mud Slide’. We even had our own ‘Ant and Dec’! Both boys faced all the challenges and were fantastic sports! Wishing them all the best as they move on to High School.
For their last full day of Primary School Thomas and Noah decided to be ‘teachers’ for the day and staff had to come to school as ‘pupils’. They had organised a full morning of activities including rounders and penalty shoot outs – they had even provided refreshments for half time!
As our end of term day out this year, pupils had the opportunity to have a boat trip with Stardust Boat Trips from Portree followed by an afternoon on the beach with a scavenger hunt, sandcastle building, beach art and bonfire with toasted marshmallows! The weather was fantastic and the boys really enjoyed the trip – particularly steering the boat! We did try a bit of fishing – but no luck on this occasion. Thank you to Stardust Boat Trips for a fantastic experience on the boat.
P7 pupils from Skye and Raasay schools were given the opportunity to take part in a sailing taster session at Portree Sailing Club. Raasay pupils attended on Tuesday 15th June and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Being towed behind the fast boat was definitely a highlight!
