Happy Holidays

As we head into what looks to be a lovely, warm summer break, all at Glenurquhart Primary would like to wish everyone a fantastic, enjoyable holiday and thank you all for your hard work this year and ongoing support.  We look forward to welcoming you back when school returns for the children on August 20th and hearing all about your adventures.  Enjoy!


School Improvement Report and Plan

Our School Improvement Report for our 2017/18 session and Plan for 2018/19 has now been approved and published on the Improvement Plan section of the Parents page on our website.  A paper copy is available on request.  We are excited about taking forward the priorities around Sustainability and continuing our work towards the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Design and Mathematics) subjects this coming year.

Isabella, Finlay and Thomas passed a TRIPLE junior grade up to Orange belt.

Rory passed his 4th Kyu grading (Purple Belt)

New P1 lunch

Yesterday we welcomed the new Primary 1 children and their parents in to try our school lunch and experience the dining hall.  They all seemed to really enjoy it and then had the chance to go out and play in the big playground.  The current P1/2 and P6/7 buddies were very caring and supportive.  Well done!

Transition Dance

P6s and P7s from Balnain, Cannich Bridge and Glenurquhart Primaries had a great night last night, enjoying the photo booth, dancing, playing games and eating together.  Mrs Woodhouse was very impressed by some of the dance moves on show!  The P7s enjoyed meeting their new S1 classmates, who they will spend Tues – Fri with at the high school next week.  Huge thanks to the new S6s and the staff at all four schools who made it happen!
