Signing off for Summer

The last week of term is always filled with mixed emotions. Happiness – to see the summer holidays ahead but also sadness as we say farewell to some of our lovely staff and children.

Mrs O’Shea has a new job in Inverness which she will begin in August. Sadly this means she will not be teaching P3/4/5 next session alongside Mrs Christie but we completely understand that Mrs O’Shea’s family must come first. Yesterday, Miss Bremner visited the school and was introduced to the children. Miss Bremner will share the class with Mrs Christie next session and we look forward to welcoming her to Team Milton.

Primary 3/4/5 said farewell to Miss Hunter this week in style by planning her a surprise wedding. There were tears of joy (and sadness) as we celebrated the special year we’ve had together. There were speeches, games, music and even a homemade wedding dress which Miss Hunter said is even nicer than the real deal! We wish Miss Hunter all the very best as she begins married life later this summer and commences her new post in August. They are a very lucky school to be getting you!

We are all very excited to welcome Ms Brewer back to Milton next session. Ms Brewer is going to be working alongside the staff and children next year developing our Numeracy curriculum. We can’t wait to hear her trademark laugh echoing through the school again!

On Tuesday, we celebrated our new P1s graduating from Nursery with a small garden gathering which we shared on Seesaw. The children took part in a special performance of the story “Tiddler” and shared memories of nursery/aspirations for P1. We wish them all the best on the next step of their learning journey.

Mrs Campbell also joined the graduates as Friday was her last day with us. Mrs Campbell has been an asset to our Nursery team this session and we are all very sad to see her go. We know she won’t be a stranger and will no doubt receive a very warm welcome when she pops in to say hello.

Last but not least, Miss Crew prepared a superb P7 leavers assembly on Thursday afternoon as a tribute to the children moving onto secondary. The children enjoyed a special fun day on Tuesday named “I’m a P7 Leaver, Get me out of here!” where they took part in various challenges to earn stars for their team. The girls just trumped the boys in the end after winning the celebrity cyclone task.

We wish the children all the very best as they transition to Invergordon Academy. We have no doubt their years there will be every bit as successful as their time at Milton.

We hope you all have a lovely, well earned summer holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back in August. Take care and stay safe ❤
