Wonderful World of Work Week

What an amazing response we had from parents and relatives, who willingly came into classes to talk to the boys and girls about their jobs. We had such a variety of roles, too many to mention, from a lorry driver, policeman, fireman, air paramedic and nurse, to managers, a computer programmer, a civil engineer and architects!! We can`t thank you enough for sharing your skills and inspiring our pupils for the future! We ended the week with a fun dress up day for the pupils, letting them share and discuss their dream job! Thank you for making the week a wonderful success!

P.6s perform Aladdin at Charleston Academy

 

 

What a wonderful panto performance by all of our Primary 6s at Charleston Academy last week! The audience were thoroughly entertained by their singing and acting skills in         re-creating the story of Aladdin for all the pupils and the community. In the process, they raised over £950 which will cover the cost of an outdoor trip at the end of the session. Well done and thank you to everyone involved in making this such a huge success!

Thinking of others at Christmas

 

Appropriately for the Season, all of the pupils have been discussing and learning about the difference between `Needs and Wants` as part of Social Studies. As a result of this, they have been  thinking about others in the community.    We are therefore very proud of :-

-Our Nursery boys and girls, who, with your help,  donated a huge amount of toys and gifts to MFR for the Christmas Toy Appeal.

-Our Primary 2s, who, with your help, filled a huge wheel –  barrow of items for the Highland Food Bank.

-Our Primary 3s and 4s who will be going up to Highfield Nursing Home to sing carols to the residents.

-Our Primary 6s, who organised the Christmas jumper day, with all the money going to MFR Cash For Kids. They raised almost £140!

Thank you to all the families who supported  these initiatives in any way,  teaching our children the importance of giving and thinking of others. Well done everyone- a great community effort!

 

 

 

 

St. Andrew`s Day Celebrations raises £875!

Our recent St. Andrew`s Day concerts  gave  the boys and girls the opportunity to perform and showcase their skills and talent. We had a great  variety of performances, with musicians, singers and Highland dancers. St. Andrew`s Day also gave us the wonderful opportunity to celebrate our Scottish culture.

The celebration was enjoyed by the whole school community and helped us raise over £875 for school funds.  We are very proud of all our boys and girls and what they achieved.  Thank you to the staff, parents, Mrs. McBain, our piping instructor and Mrs. Fraser, a dance teacher, for all their hard work and support in making the concerts such a huge success.

Open Afternoon

A big thank you to all the parents and grandparents who made it along to our Open Afternoon last week and took the time to visit the classrooms, have a look around and discuss their child`s learning with them. It was a busy afternoon with around 50-75% attendance in most classes and 80% in Primary 1.

We are  fortunate to have so many supportive parents working with us to help our pupils reach their full potential.

 

Muirtown Boys Win The Inverness District Football Cup!

What an achievement for the Primary 6/7 football team!

In a knock-out football tournament at the High School, with 24 school teams taking part, the boys won the Summer Cup for the first time in 8 years. Knocking out Inshes in the quarter finals, they then beat Milton Athletics in the semi-finals, to go on and play North Kessock in the final.  After a draw at full-time they went to penalties. In the end, Callum M. scored the winning goal for Muirtown. Well done boys!  Many thanks to all the parents and grandparents who coached and supported them to their victory.

Fantastic Team Spirit At The Baillie Cup!

Well done to all the boys and girls, from Primary 1, 2, 3 and 4, who represented the school at the Baillie Cup Athletics event at Queens Park recently.

They had fantastic team spirit, encouraging and supporting each other. The boys and girls confidently competed against many other schools, in individual and relay events, winning many medals. It`s great to see so many enthusiastic and dedicated young athletes in our school.
