Walkie-Talkies!

Image result for walkie talkie

It has been brought to my attention that an increasing number of pupils have been bringing walkie-talkies into school from home which are causing a few problems around the school grounds.

For some reason, it appears that on a few occasions, a child’s walkie-talkie has managed to pick up the radio frequency of walkie-talkies within the local area! This has included picking up conversations being held on the nearby building sites with adults, as well as picking up live broadcasting of MFR!

Obviously, this could lead to pupils over-hearing adult conversations that they shouldn’t do, as well as creating the potential for unknown adults to communicate directly with pupils without anyone being aware.

With this in mind, I would be grateful if you could keep all such devices at home (but also, keep an eye on any unwanted frequencies that they might be able to access even here).

Well done the team, a huge thank you also to coaches, staff, parents and pupils who were there to support throughout the event, and congratulations again to the team. More news and photos from the day to follow soon.

 

Network issues

We have continued to have network issues at school throughout the day meaning that we have been unable to access emails and provide updates on the blog as usual. We apologise for any difficulties this may have caused but hope we will be back up and running as usual on Monday. Have a good weekend!

P7 ski trip

Please note that the P7 ski outing will not be going ahead on Monday 18th. It has been difficult to plan with the uncertain snow conditions this year. P7 teachers will confirm plans for skiing for March 25th early next week. Thank you.

Telecoms problems

We have been experiencing lots of different network problems this morning as well as with the phone line. If you need to contact the school please hold on to be put through to one of the office team as we are not able to access phone messages. Thank you

Nifty Ninja!

Have a look at the yellow belt Martha recently secured in Taekwan-Do. Having shown exceptional Ninja skills and exemplary blackbelt attitude at Little Ninjas, Martha has now moved up a level to Nifty-Ninja – great work Martha, keep up the Ninja moves!
