SNOW UPDATE: Right – it’s looking extremely likely that we will be closing tomorrow too due to the forecast, advice from Police Scotland etc. Please though check the adverse weather line tomorrow for updates as I intend to get up early to update. I would also appreciate pics of what it looks like in Invergordon as early as possible (and late tonight if possible too) – please post on our Facebook page.
Many thanks everybody for your cooperation and understanding.
We have taken the decision to close the school at 12.30 today (Wednesday 28th Feb) due to the weather forecast. Please spread the word to as many parents that you can. Primary 1, 2 and 3 must be collected or let us know the arrangements for your child.
On Friday we held an Eco Day and parents/families were invited to come along and join in with various activities with the children. It was a great day and the school will look so much nicer as the plants grow etc. Many thanks to all the parents/families/friends who came along to help out. Have a look at a few photos of the day….
As you may be aware it is World Book Day on Thursday 1st March. Here at South Lodge, we have decided to hold our World Book Day on Friday 2nd March as we feel Friday is a better day and also gives you a full week to get involved. Due to the huge success of Mrs Macaskill and P4 doing an “Extreme Reading” idea last year, we have decided to adopt this for the whole school theme this year. We are therefore asking for you to take pictures of your child/ren reading in the most bizarre or interesting places. Last year we had children on bungee ropes reading a book, or sitting in the wash basket!! One child was even sitting on his mantelpiece like an ornament! The crazier or more imaginative the better! Then, if possible, we would like you to email them to your class teacher and they will provide you in due course with their email address. If you cannot email please just pop in and we will find a way to get it from your phone/camera etc.
We have also made the decision not to dress up on this day. World Book Day should be about books and the enjoyment of books and stories and not about dressing up which I feel detracts from the actual day and what it stands for. The children will definitely enjoy this day by sharing the photos of their extreme reading plus all the other interesting and fun activities that the staff will plan for the children to do during the day. I also hope to see many photos of parents taking part in “extreme reading!!”
Many thanks for your cooperation and involvement in this special day.
As you all know it is our Sponsored Skip on Friday 16th February. Please ensure your child’s sponsor forms are back in school on Wednesday 14th, even if you have not collected any sponsors. Please don’t worry, money does NOT have to be in before the skip but we do need the forms so staff can sign the forms on the day, to prove that your child took part in the event for the sponsors to see.
Everything crossed for a nice, sunny day on Friday….
The kids were outside enjoying some of the Wintery sunshine today.
Staff and children were encouraged to wear something in tartan or check today in celebration of Burns Night.
On Friday 26th January it is our Wear Something Tartan Day. We are encouraging children to come to school with something tartan whether it be a hair bobble or kilt (the choice is yours). If they have nothing in tartan or checked then they are just to wear normal school uniform.
