We would like to tell you about a new wildlife education club we have recently set up for young people aged 10-15 in the Inverness area. The club is called “Inverness Wildlife Watch” and is a junior branch of the Scottish Wildlife Trust, also affiliated with Highlife Highland. Our next meeting is taking place next Monday evening (26 Feb) and we would be really grateful if you could advertise the club on your school website or elsewhere within the school. We’ve included a short text below that could be posted on your News page or similar. If you would also be able to share the attached poster (either digitally or by posting up around school) that would be fantastic.


If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you so much for your help.

Willow May, Andy McMahon and Philippa Gullett

An-diugh aig co-thional, dh’ionnsaich sinn beagan den òran a sgrìobh buidheann Comhairle nan Sgoilearan mu Amasan BSGI. Cuideachd chuala sinn mu Là Mòr na Leabhraichean a tha air a chiad latha den Mhàirt. ‘S math a rinn a h-uile duine a fhuair teisteanasan an t-seachdain seo, agus dha clas a h-aon a fhuair duais airson ‘Cloakroom’ sgiobalta.

Today at assembly, we started learning the song that the Pupil Council wrote about our BSGI aims. We also heard about World Book Day, which is taking place on the 1st March. Well done to all those who won certificates this week, and to P1 for winning the prize for the tidiest cloakroom.

JRSO C1-3 5.2.18

Bha sinne ag ionnsachadh mu ciamar a bhios sinn a’ coiseachd tarsainn na rathaid gu sàbhailte. Rinn sinn solais-trafaig agus daoine trafaig airson ar n-ionnsachadh a shealltainn. Cuimhnichibh na solais trafaig a chleachdadh nuair a tha sibh a’ coiseachd dhan sgoil!

In our committee group we were discussing the different ways of crossing a road safely. We made traffic lights and traffic people to show our learning. Remember to use the traffic lights when you’re walking to school!
