Hillhead Primary School - Newsletter
At Hillhead we aim to make our children successful learners. Our pupils will value themselves
as individuals and strive to achieve their full potential. We will provide them with a variety of
stimulating learning experiences in a caring environment.
Welcome back to the start of another calendar year at Hillhead Primary School. I hope the year will prove to be a happy and healthy one for you and your child. It promises to be another busy term at Hillhead with lots of things happening.
HIGHLAND YEAR OF CULTURE
We have also engaged the services of Mrs McAdie who teaches Scottish dancing to the visitors at Ackergill Tower. Pupils in Primaries 4, 5, 6 and 7 will receive the benefit of these lessons each Friday this term commencing on January 26th. However we are also hopeful that the younger pupils may also get an opportunity later in the year to try some Scottish dancing.
HEALTHY HIGHLAND WEEK
The school kitchen will be providing a special Healthy Highland lunch on Tuesday 16th January which will consist of mince and tatties or if preferred a fish pie.
Look out for details of the school Burns lunch which will be held on January 25th. An alternative of pork sausages will be available to those who donít like haggis.
WICK ACADEMY CHRISTMAS CARD
Two other Primary 5 pupils also did well in the competition. Ashleigh Dunnett obtained 2nd place and Emma Plowman was 3rd in their age group. Both received Wick Academy match tickets.
CHRISTMAS LUNCH PRAYER
Student teacher Miss Fisher is currently placed with Primary 4 and will be with us almost until the end of term.
