Dear Parent or Carer,
The Wick Junior Triathlon
The Wick Junior Triathlon will take place on Sunday 11th. September at
Wick High School. Competitors should gather for registration in the Wick
High cafeteria at 1.00pm. Spectators should arrive for 2.00pm.
Thank you to all those taking part and the best of luck for your events.
School Car Park
The school car park is for staff and official school visitors only.
Parents are not allowed to use the car park unless they have a disabled
child when they are allowed to use the space provided.
In the interests of health and safety children are not allowed in the car
park at any time and should only enter the school by the designated gates.
Let me thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
Children in P6 or P7 are entitled to apply to become Playground Buddies.
If accepted, they are issued with a special Buddy Hat which they will keep
as a reward for giving up some of their playtimes.
Being a playground Buddy is a very important and valuable job and is an
important part of our anti bullying strategy. Buddies help school staff to
ensure, as far as is possible, that the playground is a safe and happy
place for all our children.
Buddies help children who are friendless and give them someone to talk to
during breaks which otherwise might be a very unhappy time.
Buddies also look after children who have hurt themselves and make sure
that they are taken to the support base where they will be given
appropriate First Aid.
Over the last few years the help playground buddies have given us in the
school has been invaluable and has helped, together with the work of the
playground supervisors and the school Positive Behaviour Policy, to cut
the incidents of bullying considerably.
As you know the first Parents’ Evenings of the new academic year will
be on Thursday 15th. and Thursday 22nd. September. These meeting are very
valuable and are an ideal way of getting to know your child’s new teacher
and finding out what will be required in their new class.
Do not hesitate to discuss with the teacher anything which has puzzled you
or anything which is concerning you or your child.
I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Parents’ Evening.
Our breakfast Club is going from strength to strength and about forty
children on its books which is excellent, but I would like as many
children as possible to benefit from this excellent club, so if you have
not tried it yet why not give it a go?
All of the children had a very enjoyable time being introduced to some
very interesting animals and finding out about their life cycles. The
cockroach and the snake caused the most interest followed by the cute
