End of term achievements and a spooky performance!
This week we had our last assembly for the term with a special 50 things presentation!
But first, to start assembly this week we talked about World Autism Awareness Day, which will take place next Tuesday, 2nd April. Even though we will be on holiday next week, there are a number of activities that we are taking part in this week to celebrate the day. Firstly, Jack and Jason read to us their ‘Just Because’ poems about challenging stereotypes. We also have cakes for sale and in our classes we will be doing some research into famous autistic individuals.
We then looked at some of our pupils latest achievements as part of our 50 things presentation.
In Islay Class, Sam demonstrated using a pencil and participated in a joint activity in Food Tech. A number of pupils also engaged in work experience. Jack worked at Makers over the February break, Ben set up his own car wash, Jamie successfully secured the position of Laundry Manager at the school and Jason started work as our Music Room Manager!
Jura class have also been working hard on their ’50 Things’ this term, which has included joining groups and developing strategies to reduce stress, as well as selecting their own target, developing cooking skills and being active for 20 minutes a day.
We also watched a clip of Ross in Barra class mastering a new skill in sensory circuits – well done Ross!
Skye class have also been busy achieving some of their ’50 Things’ this term, such as loading the dishwasher, being active for 20 minutes a day and crossing the road safely.
Our Eco-Schools group have also been busy this term, improving our local community and making it beautiful by litter picking on a Wednesday and during our Daily Mile.

On the last day of term we also held our school performance of Rabbie Burns and Tam O’Shanter for friends, family and staff. This spooky performance featured music, puppetry and lots of audience participation. Well done to all of our pupils who have worked so hard to build sets, make costumes and learn lines in preparation. The performance was enjoyed by all who attended!
