P5 and P6 Highland Show

Grant Mackie of Greenspan Energy sponsored our recent visit to The Royal Highland Show. Pupils had a fantastic day, leaving at 7am and not returning until 10:30pm!

We had a super time exploring the huge farm machinery and learning all about Salmon Farming and Potato farming in the RHET Discovery Centre. Pupils took part in a cookery demonstration with chef Rylee cooking some delicious puddings!  Then we had some free time to explore the various stalls and have some fun on the inflatable assault course.

Some groups also managed to visit all the livestock. Thank you to all our parent helpers who gave up a very long day to support the pupils!  Thank you too, Greenspan Energy who enabled us to have such a fabulous experience.



Children’s University

Rylee Gray and Mayah Herlihy achieved success in graduating from The Children’s University on Saturday 24th June at Elphinstone Hall.  Rylee Gray was awarded a Gold Undergraduate Award for 100 hours of learning activities.  Mayah Herlihy was awarded a Silver Undergraduate Award for 65 hours of learning activities. 

 

We are very proud of our first 2 pupils from St Fergus Primary who have graduated.  Next session we hope many more pupils will take the fantastic opportunity to get involved in this prestigious event.

Bouncy Castle Fun!

P6/7 pupils used their profit from a recent maths exercise where children had to create an enterprise to make a profit. Their ideas ranged from iced smoothies and fruit kebabs, these were made and sold to pupils then profit and loss were calculated.  They decided to order a bouncy castle and a disco dome to share with the school.  A fantastic day was had by all!



Visit from Kim Little

Our senior class were delighted to welcome a celebrity into school last Monday.   Kim Little, who is the leading goal scorer for Scotland’s Women’s National Football Team gave them a talk about her life and career in football.   Kim, who was brought up in Mintlaw, was voted BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year in 2016.   The class had prepared questions for Kim and were especially keen to hear about the years she spent playing in the USA for Seattle.   Kim presented pupils with a pair of signed football boots and these will be raffled at the start of the new session.
