‘Totally Awesome Schoolbag’ Success

Primaries 6/7B and 7R worked in teams to create a “Totally Awesome Schoolbag.” This enterprise competition was organised by North Highland College. It gave the pupils the opportunity to develop life skills and skills they will need in the future for working. They had to consider – the four P’s – Product, Price, Promotion, Place.

Each school in the Wick area was invited to have three teams compete in a Dragon’s Den style presentation at the Norseman Hotel. All the teams delivered their sales pitch to Mr Budge at school and the top three wee selected to go to the event in the Norseman. The lucky teams were “SBA”, “Zuch” and “Kit Bags.” There were eleven teams competing altogether at the Norseman. The standard of presentations was very high and the judges asked the children some thought provoking questions, which were answered very well.

The winning team ‘Zuch’ was made up of Keira Gunn, Freya Lamb, Eilidh Fleming, Rory Miller, Alisha Mackay and Leah Sinclair. They received three out of a possible four awards – Most Enterprising, Most Creative and Overall Winner! A very successful project which the pupils enjoyed taking part in. Below are some photographs of the children involved.

Parent ‘Learning’ Visits

We have had the first of our parent learning visits this week into some of the classes. All the parents, staff and pupils involved have really enjoyed it.  The children have loved sharing their learning and showing their parents some of the activities they do in school.

If you haven’t yet signed up to visit and you would like to come, just get in touch with your child’s teacher on Dojo or phone the school office.

Below are a selection of photos of some of the parent visitors we have had this week and we look forward to seeing many more of you over the next few weeks.
