The buses are leaving Perth now (11.15am) and expect to be at law at 12.45pm.
The good weather is holding and the children are sleeping well. It’s hard to believe that they will be home tomorrow! No further news- so all must be well.
Mrs Wareham has been in touch this morning to say all is well at Lagganlia. The children slept well (she didn’t mention the staff!) and the sun is shining again this morning. It is strangely quiet in school!
Our P7 pupils have arrived safely at Lagganlia and no-one was sick! The forecast is good and they are looking forward to a great week.
A group of our P6 children have been trained as Junior Tour Guides and will be assisting with visits to the Seabird Centre by other schools during the coming term. They had to audition for their roles and have attended several rehearsals and put in a lot of hard work and effort to get to a public performance standard. STV came to film them in action on Tuesday and there was an item on TV last night. If you missed it, here is the link to STV player
Congratulations to all involved – a great achievement!

A group set up to challenge negative attitudes towards maths wants to hear the views of parents’ and young people. The Making Maths Count expert group, established by Education Secretary Angela Constance, has launched a short online questionnaire to find out how people feel about maths and how they use their maths skills. The group, which brings together expertise from industry, academia and science, has been tasked with identifying which factors can create negative attitudes towards maths, before making its recommendations on how to improve the nation’s enthusiasm for and participation in the subject. Teachers, parents, carers and young people are all encouraged to contribute their thoughts as part of the group’s call for evidence.
Further information and the online questionnaire is at www.gov.scot/makingmathscount.
