Pompom Workshops for Knitfest

IMG_1131[1]IMG_1123[1]Primary 5 and 6 have been busy this term making pompoms during Golden Time.  Over 40 children have volunteered to take part in this activity over the past 5 weeks.

They were making pompoms to help create flags for the Loch Ness Knitfest which celebrates different countries.  Meg is a local librarian who has helped organise the workshops alongside Brenda from Loch Ness Knitfest. We were asked to make the Scotland flag out of blue and white pompoms.  This will be displayed in the Ice Centre where the Knitfest takes place this month.

Many thanks to Meg and Brenda for all their help and advice on pompom making!  The pupils thoroughly enjoyed themselves. 🙂

Today we had a photographer who took a photograph of 2 representatives from each of the P5 and P6 classes who had been involved in the workshops.  Keep an eye out for our photo in the Inverness Courier and also the Highland News over the next few weeks.

Inshes Primary Shoebox Appeal

New-Box-All_website (1)

We have teamed up with the Rotary Club to take part in the Shoebox Appeal to provide gifts for people in Eastern Europe.

“The gift of a shoebox that contains toys, toiletries, educational items or household goods is a drop of happiness to the people of Eastern Europe who live in a world of poverty. For many, it will be the first present that they have ever received and it lets them know that somebody, somewhere cares. “

Rotary Club Newsletter

We hope that by supporting the campaign the children can learn about Global Citizenship and Children’s Rights by helping real families who are in unfortunate circumstances.

We would like you to donate a small item to help fill a shoebox in your child’s class.  Each class is collecting items as follows:

Nursery Baby Box
P1 Boys and Girls
P2 Boys and Girls
P3 Families
P4 Families
P5 Families
P6 Teenagers
P7 Teenagers

Our deadline is Friday 27th October 2017.  Thank you for your support.
