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.
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.

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.
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.
This morning we sent a team to the Inter-school sports at Elgin High School. We were competing in the ‘C’ category for schools based on our size of school.
