News from the Junior School Week 8

Cross-Country Success

Cross-country Success   Cross-country Success

Last week, twelve children represented the Junior School at the Moray Primary Schools’ Cross Country Race, competing against 18 other schools. The race took place around the school campus and there was some strong competition from the runners! A special mention for Louisa P who came second overall in the P5 girls’ race, and Will C who came second in the P7 boys race. Overall, in the team event, the P7 team came second place which was fantastic. These results are a great achievement considering each race included around 36 competitors! We were incredibly proud of the commitment and energy shown by all of our runners and we would like to congratulate everyone who competed on behalf of the school.

Save the Children Quiz Night

The Question master   The Scorers

Last Friday evening, the Junior School hosted its annual Quiz Night in aid of Save the Children. Once again, the quiz proved to be a great success. Everyone enjoyed the evening with challenging questions and superb company, all whilst raising money for a fabulous charity. A huge thank you is due to everyone who contributed towards, or came to support, this event. Without your support, these events would not be possible. We would also like to thank all of our Year 8s who competed in the quiz and all of our helpers who helped to ensure the event ran smoothly. We will keep you updated regarding the total money we raised.

Inverness String Performance

The Junior School String Group travelled to perform in the Inverness Music Festival against the Inverness School String Orchestra. They managed to win in their age category with a piece called It Don’t Mean a Thing by Duke Ellington. What a wonderful performance! Superb work from everyone who represented the school and a big thank you to Mr Csenki and Miss Reynolds for organising our entrance into the competition.

Year 2/3 Feeling Blue

But don’t worry, it’s only because they have been looking at Blue Whales in Science! As well as designing their own whale to go on display in their classroom (pictures to follow in a later issue), they have been learning about what Blue Whales eat and where they live. They also      focused on what dangers humans might pose to them, such as sea pollution. It was also of crucial importance to find out how big Blue Whales truly are! Mrs Csenki and Mrs Macpherson took the children outside to measure out the average size of a Blue Whale! Wow! Thank goodness there isn't a real Blue Whale on the Aberlour field, where would we play all of our sports?
