All Moray schools are involved in WoW to encourage pupils, parents and carers to walk, cycle, scooter or park and stride to school at least four times a week. Children record when they walk to school using an online Travel tracker. Each month, children who have walked, or travelled actively, at least four times a week throughout the month receive a collectable badge. Different badge designs will be awarded each month based around a theme.
For clarification to parents Park and Stride applies from Cumming Hall to the school not from the Drop Off area inside the school grounds. There is a parent app which can be accessed through the App Store and Google Play. Living Streets walk to school app. Kinloss have scored exceptionally high across Scotland maintaining first or second place over the few months and as a result we have been advised we will get a prize – as yet still to arrive!!
We are delighted at the week of health-related activities which we had at the end of May culminating in our Fun Run with parents along too. A big thanks to all who participated. To staff and outside agencies who delivered quality fun and healthy fun and healthy activities across Nursery to P7. A special thanks to parents who turned up on Friday and did the Fun Run.
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.
A Gallery page on this website has a wide range of photographs of the event.
There are a selection of photographs below.
A team of 12 pupils from P4 to P7 represented the school at the Inter-School Sports held on June 7th at Elgin Academy. The team won a range of medals for their efforts and once again demonstrated the supreme athletic, cross school abilities and aptitudes of our pupils. Thanks to the pupils for their outstanding efforts.
Overall our school came third in the “B” category (based on school size).
The boys team gained a silver medal in relay and the girls team a bronze.
P2 pupils have been engaging in the first stage of their Bikeability, which is the Road Safety Unit for the early cycling operated under the auspices of the Police Road Safety Scheme. We are most fortunate that two of our support staff Mrs Sinclair and Mrs Harper are both trained as Trainers in this scheme and are able to deliver the induction and training to our younger pupils. The training has gone well to date and the children seem to be confident on their bicycles.
In May we had a wonderful week of Health and Wellbeing focused-activities including Bouncy castle, Whole School Run, Cycling, Eat Well Plate, Rugby, Skipping, Zumba, Parachute, Kick boxing, Teeth and a Drug Game. The weather was kind and pupils from Nursery-P7 had a brilliant week to allow the focus on health and wellbeing which delivered across the school in an ongoing manner to be highlighted at a time when children and families are preparing for the summer break. Thanks to Mrs Riddell for the planning, management and organisation of this yet again.
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.
