Pupils were delighted to be asked to be ‘Guard of Honour’ at the recent local wedding of Fiona Gillies and Iain Robertson. The day was beautiful as you can see from the wonderful photographs. Thank you to Fiona and Iain for asking us to be part of their special day and we wish them all the best and every happiness for the future.
This term, after discussion at a Pupil Council meeting, it was decided that pupils would like to develop the back area of the school grounds. Lots of ideas were forthcoming and pupils will be working with the Parent Council over the next few weeks and months to develop their ideas.
Pupils at Raasay Primary School are assigned buddies each session – this helps pupils to support and care for each other. Pictured below are our buddy teams for this year.
We are delighted to welcome Annabelle Zinovieff to Raasay Primary School as our new school cook. Annabelle is cooking up some delicious meals and snacks – pictured are the pupils with Annabelle – enjoying their healthy snacks at break time.
At the end of last term, pupils in Raasay Primary School undertook a charity community walk in aid of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Family Support Trust. Thank you to all who joined us and contributed to this very worthy cause. A fantastic total of £149.56 has been sent off to the charity.
As part of our ‘farewell’ to Tamsin, she was given the opportunity to decide on a whole day of activities and a theme of her choice. It was no surprise that the dress code was ‘pink’! and Tamsin had very clearly laid out her plan for the day which included yoga, painting with different materials, a disco and signing her t-shirt. She also chose spelling tests, phonics and Sumdog Maths! Here are a few photos from the day – we all wish Tamsin all the best in her new school and we look forward to hearing how she is getting on.
On Wednesday 3rd July we held our annual Prizegiving to celebrate pupils’ successes and achievements over the course of the year. We were delighted to welcome Deputy Lord Lieutenant John Laing as our special guest. He presented the children with a certificate in recognition of the work undertaken by them in their World War 1 project at the beginning of the year. Raasay Primary was one of only two schools in the are who received this special certificate and we were delighted that he came to present it to us. Our Prizegiving was also a chance to wish Tabby a fond farewell as she finishes Primary 7 and also Tamsin who will be moving away with her family in August. We will miss them both but look forward to hearing how they are getting on and hope that they will visit us often.
