This is a social event for parents hosted by the Head Teacher and allows parents to have an opportunity to offer support to each other as well as to the school and also to raise concerns with the Head Teacher in an informal manner. The dates of the future Chat n’ chill are contained on the Events page.
The final day of the Kinloss Primary School Summer term began in traditonal style with the P7 Assembly. The children and their teacher, Miss Mair had worked hard to write and produce a varied and entertaining program of drama, singing, heartfelt memories of schooldays and demonstations of the skills and talents of this year’s P7 pupils. At a wonderful assembly the P7 leavers shook hands with the rest of their school. Good Luck P7 at your new secondary schools in August 2013. We hope everyone has a restful holiday and returns refreshed ready for a new exciting Autumn Term at Kinloss in August 2013
On Tuesday the children,staff and parents had another enjoyable Sports Day. The weather stayed dry and all the races went smoothly due to the organisational skills of Mrs Bichan (the PE specialist) and support of Kinloss Staff and the children who took part. Kinloss parents had their own opportunity to join in with the Mums’ and the Dads’ obstacle races. Finally when all the marks were added up for this event and few others held through the year it was Aigan House which got its name of the winners cup for the first time for many years.
After the successful event a group of enthusiastic group of parents supplied a waiting crowd with delicious home-made baking and refreshing tea, coffee or juice.

Today the whole school took part in an Enterprise afternoon. Parents were invited to come into the school and to see what the children had made.The planning began a few weeks ago when each class had to decide what they could make and then sell. Once they had decided they had to collect together the resources and equipment to make their chosen products. Some of the classes wrote to local businesses to see if a business would donate what they needed. Other classes bought the resources locally or through specialist catalogues.
The school bustled with activity throughout the afternoon. Most of the classes were able to sell all their products during the afternoon. The children enjoyed meeting new people and using their selling skills to make a successful sale.
Today the Olympic flame came to visit Kinloss Primary School.. Abi O’Grady came with her torch, which she had carried on the torch relay. She ran with the flame in Grantown. The children could hold the torch and learn about what it was like to carry it from Abi. It was a very interesting visit.
On 15th June a group of Stunt Riders (the Riderz) visited the school. The team is based in Scotland and they travel around the country performing their display.
Three hundred P5-7 pupils from local schools cycled here led by the Active Schools Co-ordinator, Chris Thompson. The schools included Applegrove, Andersons, Dyke Primary schools. The children brought a picnic lunch. Afterwards they watched the display and then after the visiting schools had left to cycle home Kinloss pupils took part in a slow race competition. The winner was George Hurst and he won a T-shirt.
