Primary 5/6/7 were delighted to have a visit from two very special guests on Friday 23rd January. SPL star Tony Dingwall took time out of his busy training schedule to visit Milton Primary along with Head Of Youth at Ross County, Steven Ferguson.

The children heard about their favourite books and were able to share their favourite novels with Tony and Steven. P5-7 asked some superb questions. Riley was really surprised to hear how important maths and language skills are to players, both on and off the pitch!

A huge thank you to Ross County, we really appreciated your visit and are delighted with our books (which Tony even signed). Definitely a Friday to remember!

Thank you Staggies!

A massive well done to Keigan today who won the class homework challenge. Primary 3/4 had to design a new Scotland flag which showed what Scotland meant to them. The children cast their votes over lunch time and as you can see Keigan was delighted with the result!
