A video made using our GoPro of our amazing Muddy Mudder 2018. What a great day this was. Well done to all of the pupils who took part in the event – and thanks to the cleaners for getting the school back to normal!
We opened our Sports Relief Activity Week 2018 with a whole school conga through the playground.
Check out the video of the event and check back throughout the week for more Sports Relief fun!
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!)

Our first full day has been a blast here at Benmore. All the groups have been out enjoying morning and afternoon activities – everyone has had a super day and each activity seems to trump the previous! Only 7’s for dorm inspections this morning so plenty of room for improvement. Spag Bol for dinner with apple crumble for dinner…oh and gooey cookies for cake o’clock…we are not complaining about the food!! Everyone sends their love home,
The staff and P7 (they grow up so fast!)
First day done and the kids are all fast asleep in their beds…or pretending to be! We have had an excellent day all round and the children have enjoyed settling into to their new doorms and exploring the centres grounds. Fish and chips for dinner so everyone managed to eat something. Our first full day of activities tomorrow so we are all looking forward to those,
Mr B, Miss G, Miss B, Miss W and P6
