Walk a Mile a Day Challenge – as many of you will know this initiative started in Stirling and now being promoted by the Scottish Government was brought to our attention through our Parent council members. Miss Hardie, Miss Mair and Miss Carter have agreed to initiate this within Kinloss commencing Monday 11th January 2016. Forms to register will be issued to interested pupils on Monday 14th December 2015. The challenge will run from 8.30am each morning and the staff are seeking support from any interested parents to allow them to cater for expected numbers of children. Pupils who arrive by taxi and bus and are unable due to this to arrive in school for 8.30am will be offered the opportunity to participate as part of their lunchtime activities. Active Schools have teamed up with the staff and will be awarding pupils who reach milestones over the days, and weeks etc.
This event was held on Friday the 27th November and was full to capacity after a near call off due to poor numbers. The event is held by the Garden Club as a fund raiser for seeds, trays, gardening tools etc over the course of the year and to support any larger work needing done in the garden. The food served is sourced from the garden apart from the meat for the stovies and the children collect and help prepare in the lead up to the event. The ceilidh is compered by the garden club members and they did a tremendous job of hosting. After all expenses covered the event raised just under £250.00 for the Garden Club funds. Our thanks to all who came along and supported the event and a special thanks as always to the effort by the pupils.

Well done to our team for their well deserved success.
All the classes were involved in a Christmas Show based on the theme of A Christmas Carol.
There were four scenes in the show. The Staff, children and volunteer helpers all worked hard to make the show a wonderful display of Kinloss Talent!. Mr Rutherford took charge. All classes were involved in making all the props and working on their costumes.
Tea, Coffee and Mince pies were served after the event.
Every Thursday P5 are cycling to Findhorn to visit the beach and learn more about the local coastline with its varied flora and fauna. Local Charity WildThings have organised a series of six half-day visits once a week to coastline nearby. The children have the opportunity to investigate their local coastline through games, play and hands-on activities. They collected examples of coastal plants on sticky paper and made their own hats. They searched the beach and dunes for as many different plants as they could find. The pieces were stuck to the sticky paper and then the hat was put on. Some collected larger pieces which made less successful hats. Others needed an adjustment in the hat size.
Next week the children are goint to visit Hopeman beach.
A group of six children, Mr & Mrs Sinclair and Mrs Harper cycled over to Coltfield Junction to collect the torch. The torch went on the back of each child’s bike in turn as they made their way to Forres.
