Please find below a document showing the opportunities parents have been offered to engage with the school and their child’s learning.
On Monday 11th December there will be a change to the school menu. There will be salmon fish fingers with diced potatoes or filled baked potatoes with either cheese or beans. There will be no vegetable noodles.

A massive well done to everyone who participated in the Pumpkin Parade last Tuesday.
All of your pumpkins looked amazing and we were blown away by your creativity! #GrowCreateShine
Here are some pictures that we managed to take along the way 🙂
Thank you to all our hard working children that attended the first blog and newspaper club today.
After sharing lots of ideas and lots of deliberation the children decided to name our newspaper ‘The Stoneyhill Mini Mail’. This will share a collection of events, achievements and sporting news from across the school.
Look at the mind-map below to see some of the fantastic ideas they want to share with you.
Keep your eyes peeled for the new Stoneyhill Mini Mail page, coming soon on the website!!
A selection of photos from the P1-3 Hallowe’en disco. You won’t even be able to tell who is who, everyone looked so ghastly and scary!

As you’ll be aware the Scottish Government is planning to nearly double the hours of free early learning and childcare by 2020. Because the views of parents and carers are crucial for the success of this expansion, the Government has commissioned independent researchers to undertake a survey of parents. It is now asking for your help in sharing the survey link (www.bit.ly/elc-survey) with as many parents of 0-5 year old children in your community as possible.
All parents taking part will have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw and have the chance to win one of 10 x GBP100 cash prizes.
The survey is carried out for the Scottish Government by Craigforth, an independent research company. If you have any questions about this survey please send a message to: email@example.com
The final activities are completed, the pizza was yummy, the disco moves were epic and we have a bunch of rather exhausted children in their beds! We’ve had an excellent week here at Benmore! Can we rewind to the start of the week and do it all again?
See you all tomorrow! (Have the hot water on and the washing basket at the ready!)
Love from P7!
Another activity packed day completed and we defintiely heard a buzz around the room at dinner time this evening! Lots of chat about our favourite activities (too many to choose from!) and funniest moments so far (Miss Blanchflower definitely didn’t capsize in kayaking yesterday and have to get a lift to shore on the back of Cameron’s kayak…poor Cameron)!
Teamwork has been a particular strength this year and each group has been telling stories about how they’ve been helping and encouraging each other to push themselves out of their comfort zones! Yay team!
The boys and girls have been taking their cleaning duties very seriously (take note parents!) and have been keeping the house clean and tidy; room inspection scores were on the up today and the competition is on for Thursday and Friday!
Mrs MaCartney gave us a surprise visit this morning and stayed for the day, joining different groups at their activities. She even got her wet shoes on and joined Miss Glissov’s group kayaking!
Sweet and sour chicken/vegetables with rice and arctic roll with peaches were on the dinner menu tonight. However, “don’t worry” you don’t have to take the sauce with the chicken nuggets!
This evening’s activity was an active game of cluedo where the children searched the house for clues to discover which instructor committed a terrible crime! We also had a music quiz and caught a glimpse of the dance moves in store for us during tomorrow night’s disco!
Sending love to all at home (2 more sleeps!)
Miss B, Mr B, Miss G, Miss W and P7
