24/11/2017 “Be Safe Be Seen” Assembly
After two weeks of preparations, we held our “Be Safe Be Seen” assembly this morning. Hometime is getting darker and darker so we wanted to remind everyone in the school how to keep themselves safe when walking or cycling to school in the dark winter months. We discussed how wearing bright colours, reflectors and lights and torches help us to be seen by car drivers. We sang “Be bright, be safe” and then showed the school our powerpoint presentation: Be Safe Be Seen Assembly Nov 2017

With thanks to ROSPA for the song.
30/06/2017 Thank you to outgoing JRSOs
A huge thank you to our P7 JRSOs who are leaving us today: Darci, Ewan, Hannah, Jamie, Sarah and Imogen. We really appreciate all your hard work over the past three years. Freya and Grace will continue as JRSOs next session (ably assisted by Eilidh and Sam.) Two new JRSOs will be selected from new P6 applicants next term.
30/06/2017 “Go For It” Incentive Scheme Update
Well done to all those who received prizes for completing 25 journeys to school over the last seven weeks.
Huge congratulations to the twenty five pupils who completed 50 journeys! Your Reward Cards were delivered this morning. Miss Mullin will post/deliver them to you so that you can use your cards in the summer holidays.
The scheme will run again next session and we are hoping that an even bigger number of pupils will achieve 50 journeys before the October holidays.
12/05/2017 “Go For It” Incentive Scheme Launched
At today’s assembly we launched the “Go for It!” incentive scheme. “Go for It!” aims to encourage more children to walk to school. There are some great rewards available to those who manage to walk to/from school on 50 occasions – these include a day pass for one to Landmark!
Following the assembly, children were sent home with a special permission letter to allow them to take part.
Next week is “Walk to School Week.” Here’s hoping that you can walk, cycle or scoot to & from school every day next week (earning you 10 journeys in the first week!)
For those who live further away, you can still earn a journey if you get dropped off at the car park at the shop/play park etc. (There is a map with the permission letter.)
28/04/2017 Meeting with Craig Ireland
This morning, we met with Craig Ireland from the Highland Council Road Safety Team. We planned next month’s “Walk to School Week.” We are going to start an incentive scheme to encourage more pupils to walk, cycle or scoot to school.

19/12/2016 Parking Banners are here!
On Monday afternoon we helped to put the parking banners up in the car park to encourage people to drop and go. We have just finished a powerpoint for our next JRSO assembly (date to be confirmed.)
Stay safe over the holidays everyone!
24/11/2016 Latest Campaigns
Hello, we would really like to share our latest campaign with you. This term and next term we are focusing on “Be safe be seen”. We will shortly be receiving the new JRSO Bold banners, from the competition we held before the end of last term. Our wonderful winners’ bold banners will be displayed on the fences beside the car park, so you will know where to park. Finally, we have received three offers of help with our bikeability training which we hope to put in place during the final term.
Sarah, Hannah and Freya.
