It’s that time of year again! Our annual Coffee Day will be taking place on Saturday 2nd November. This is the one day of the year when we raise money for our school funds, the rest of the year we focus on raising money for charities, both local and national. This year the Pupil Council have identified that they would like to develop the outdoor play space at the back of the school with a view to creating a trim trail and adventure space. Our fundraising efforts will support this. This year, the pupils developed an Enterprise logo – ACORNS (All Children Of Raasay Nursery and School) to be used on the products they are creating for the sale. They researched ideas for developing a design, sent it to a stamp company and are now busy on the production line stamping their products before the big day. They have created some beautiful Egyptian themed Christmas cards, hand-made scented candles and beeswax wraps to sell on the day. We hope you will come along on the day to enjoy the delicious food at the Parent Council Cafe and all the usual stalls and prizes. There will also be some outdoor challenges including
archery, dumper challenge, golf and football challenge – see you there, 11am to 3pm!
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.
