Good Evening all,

Tomorrow, Friday 28th February, Milton Primary will be taking part in a Rainbow Raiser to raise funds for the Leanne Fund. Children are invited to wear rainbow colours to school tomorrow and bring a donation for the charity. P6/7 will be going to the Shieling Project (all being well weather wise) but they are welcome to wear rainbow colours too.

On that note, can I ask for P6/7 parental support in ensuring all children are equipped for the trip out tomorrow. Last time we attended the weather was miserable and we ended up with some miserable children because they were not prepared. Please ensure your child has a warm, winter waterproof jacket, hat, scarf, gloves, plenty of layers (spares in a bag would be a good idea), waterproof trousers and welly boots or other waterproof footwear. If your child requires support with any of the items listed – please contact the school in the morning so we can have these ready for your children in order to be able to leave school at 9.00am promptly.

An email will also be coming to inform you of our plans for World Book Day next Thursday 5th March. The children, and staff, are invited to wear their pyjamas to school and there will be opportunities to take part in a range of book day activities in their classes.

Some of the children may have told you, we have made some small changes to our lunch set up on a trial basis this week. We will review this with the children, and staff, tomorrow and we will write to inform you of any permanent changes next week. Please ask your child/ren about their experience in the canteen this week, we are very keen to hear from you too. If you’d like to share anything with us, please contact the school.

As many of you will be aware, our friends at Park Primary have had a very traumatic week. Here at Milton, we are in awe of the commitment shown by the staff preparing new classrooms at a new location in 48 hours in order to welcome their children back to school today. A huge well done to the children too, for being so brave. Here at Milton, we are sending well wishes along the road to Park and wish them lots of luck as they start a new chapter in Invergordon Academy for now.
