Dear Parents and Carers
We’ve added a message from James Wylie, Executive Director, to the homepage of our website: http://www.kgsorkney.com/
We are incredibly proud of pupils every week, but over the last 5 days we have seen their kindness and support for other shine even brighter. Covid-mitigations have meant that lots of our usual activities for Children in Need had to be postponed, but they were determined to find ways to raise money for this important charity. One activity that brought lots of smiles was seeing pupils and staff dress up as TV and film characters – definitely a sight to behold and it raised lots of money too! You can see some of the staff photos on our Facebook and Twitter with more to follow very soon!
Please remember to email Mrs Watson (firstname.lastname@example.org) with details about your child’s successes out with school. We love hearing about their achievements, and we want to recognise them in school too. (House points, chocolates and other prizes are up for grabs so we’re sure it’ll be worth it!)
We received fantastic news this week regarding pupils who had entered a Data Visualisation Challenge, set by Orkney Auction Mart and Orkney Science Festival. Well done to Lev and Sophie who received prizes for their submissions!

Do you know a sports person who has continued to work hard through this past year and achieve their goals or a coach who has gone above and beyond to help a sports person, team or club overcome the hurdles of this past year, a volunteer who has worked tirelessly supporting their club or a official who has been pivotal to making competition happen or achieved a officiating qualification? If you do please nominate them so they can receive the recognition they deserve. More information here: Orkney Sports Awards
Finally, please don’t forget that we have a questionnaire about our strategy to promote ‘positive relationships and behaviour across the school’ on the homepage of our website. We’d love to know what you think!
We hope you have a fantastic weekend,
Miss Claire Meakin
