Red Nose Day

red nose day

 

A wee reminder that Red Nose Day is on Friday 15th March.  Children can come to school and ELC dressed in something red and donate £1 if they wish.

We have some red noses for sale, costing £1.25 which will be on sale at break time in the school hall.

 

Basketball Training

The basketball training on Tuesdays for P6 and P7s has now ended and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to John Kerray, coach of Inverness Lions, for volunteering his time and coaching the players these past months.

Thanks John!

Ms B and the basketball players. 🙂

European Championships

I am currently in Hungary, representing GB in the European Powerlifting Championships. Many children have asked if they can watch me competing.

I compete on Tuesday 5th March, starting approx 1430 UK time and it will be on for a few hours.

The link to the live stream is either of these 2 links.

P2/3 Shinty Stars

A huge well done to the P2/3 Shinty team who played in their first tournament last weekend.   They were up against teams of P4/5’s. Although they were beaten in each game they improved with every game and got a couple of goals!

Their coach, Kath, said she was was really proud in particular of their attitude. All of them behaved really well and listened to the instructions. Most importantly they had fun!

Well done to the players and coaches!

Momo Challenge

This ‘game’ has been brought to my attention today.  This is a very unpleasant ‘game’ which is clearly upsetting for any child who stumbles across it.

In effect, the game is not an online game. The online part is that the dares are delivered or made using social media, usually WhatsApp, so that the challenges can come from anywhere in the world as each ‘player’ is encouraged to add someone new to the challenge list and so it goes on, similar to the old ‘chain letter’ game that was played many years ago.

From a Highland point of view, we have added the term ‘Momo’ to the blacklist of phrases that are blocked on Chromebooks so children should not be able to access any info about Momo from their Chromebook device. However, as you will appreciate, it is pretty much impossible to shut these sorts of horrific challenges and games down completely and it is more about the education around what a child should do if they stumble upon this.

Over the next days, class teachers and myself will be speaking to classes about this and what to do if they come across this.
