Keep up to date with what is happening at Kinloss Primary School and Nursery via our Twitter page and our regular tweets.
The ski trip took place between Tuesday 16th – Friday 19th February.
Primary 6 and 7 pupils from P5/6M, P6/7R and P7T went to on the trip.
Twenty seven Pupils and three staff (Mr Rutherford, Mrs Sinclair and Mrs Welsh)
This year we stayed in the house. We were joined at the school by a Catholic school from Stoke .
On the first day we skied on the dry slope then had nearly three full days skiing at the Lecht. Conditions were good. Weather varied from very cold with snow showers to beautiful blue skies and sunshine.
Excellent trip and every child progressed to managing the tows and skiing down the Robin, Wren, Kestrel and Eagle runs.
Thanks go to the excellent staff at the Abernethy Centre, the Lecht Ski Area Staff and especially to the three Kinloss Staff members Mr Rutherford, Mrs Sinclair and Mrs Welsh who accompanied the children on the trip.They took part in all the activities too and made sure everyone had a safe and enjoyable Abernethy Experience.
On Friday the whole school gathered in the hall. Many of the children had chosen to dress up in a character from a book. For example in P6 there was Frodo Baggins, Willy Wonka, Bella Swan, Gangster Granny, Scooby Doo, Ratburger, Dorothy, Matilda, Amanda Thripp, Junior Executioner, Ghost rider, Wally, Harry Potter, Horrid Henry and Sully. Each class went up one by one for the character book parade.
In P6 Sam (as a warrior from War Horse) and Alyssia (Willy Wonka).
P6 pupils took part in the Social Enterprise by creating and selling Fruit Sorbet raising funds for developing education in third world country. The activity followed on from the P4’s Taste of Scotland and their Coffee Morning and the P2- P7 Christmas Cake sale which started the ball rolling for Social Enterprise. We intend to continue to develop this next session with more classes and more pupils getting involved in a variety of pupil-led activities and events.
During the day the older pupils looked after the younger pupils in the school. They did a variety of activities including litter picking, healthy picnics, creating a water saving poster, recycling quiz and gardening. They looked for insects outside.
