Premnay Netball/Football Festival- Save the date!
Our annual festival will take place on Saturday 27th June 11am- 2pm.
Parent Helpers
Premnay School parents over the years have run very successful clubs for the benefit their own and
other children in the school. These are an important part of school life which the children enjoy, value
greatly and gain a lot from. For these to continue on a regular basis we need new volunteers to support
these clubs and activities.
In the past the senior pupils in the school have undertaken ‘Bikeability’ training. As a school we would
like to continue to offer this as part of the curriculum at school. With limited staff in school we are
unable to take this on and rely on parents to run the training. We currently have one parent who is
trained and keen to continue but would be unable to undertake this on her own.
Support can be given, in terms of training and organisation, through our Network Active Schools
Coordinator and Bikability Training.
If you can help and support Netball, Football and Bikability training please enquire at the school office.
Sports Day
Sports day will take place on Friday 12th June 1.30-3.15pm (weather permitting!) Parents are all
welcome to come and spectate.
In School this term
We are very fortunate to have Dr. Goodwill back this term to teach Kodaly to the pupils. This takes
place on Monday mornings.
P1-3 topic this term is Senses.
The pupils will be visiting Satrosphere Science Centre in Aberdeen on Tuesday 26th May where the
pupils will participate in a Sound workshop.
P4-7 will be studying Buddhism and Growing.
The pupils will be making a farm visit in June- the date for this is yet to be confirmed. In addition to
this on Wednesday 27th May the pupils will be participating in a Science workshop ‘Fuel Hunters’
facilitated by Generation Science. This will take place at school.
All pupils need to have a pair of indoor shoes for the classroom and come to school with a jacket as playtimes will
be outside even on rainy days.
Please name all your child’s clothing- we are unable to return things to their rightful owner if clothes have not
been labelled.
Pupils should have their PE kits in school all week. The older will try to make use of the park in the better
weather for P.E. so they should also bring suitable footwear.
