15 December 2020Win a Robertson’s Larder Goodie Bag!
We have been gifted a beautiful bag filled with goodies from the fantastic people at Robertson’s Farm Shop in Beauly.
We are going to run a 100 square for the chance to win. Please email the school if you would like a square and we will get your child to choose an available square for you. It is £1 per square. We will be choosing the winning square on Thursday at 2pm and would love to have all the squares filled if possible! Proceeds from this will go towards our fundraising efforts for Cash for Kids.
We have already raised over £200 from over the 2 schools which is an amazing achievement!

17 November 2020Speed Limit at Mulbuie
I am delighted to report that after some years of persistance, the speed limit outside Mulbuie Primary is now 40mph.
This will certainly go some way to making the road at the front of the school safer. Thanks to all who supported with this and made this happen.
Please keep to the safer speed of 20 mph at times when there are children out and about.
17 November 2020Parents Meetings

17 November 2020Parental Engagement
Message from the Local Authority
Parental engagement/evening update:
As an Authority we are working with our schools to ensure they feel supported in a time of great uncertainty. The Health and Wellbeing of our staff is paramount right now. Parental engagement is key. However, many factors need to be taken into account this year where face to face consultation is not possible.
Following consultation with union representatives, it has been agreed that Highland Council will proceed with a small number of schools to take part of a virtual parent engagement/evening trial. This is to make sure that a preferred system/platform works well and that there are no issues from either school or parent perspective. A mixture of primary and secondary schools in Mid, South and West areas have agreed to take part in this trial throughout November.
Once this trial has been completed further engagement with Head Teachers, parents and Unions will take place, with a decision made in how to move forward with virtual parental engagement. The timing of this pilot may mean that this type of school engagement may not take place until term 3.
Schools will have different approaches to parental engagement and these will vary between schools. This decision lies with the individual school and is supported by Local Authority.

Please place orders through the school office. There are a limited number so they will be sold on a first come first served basis.
All orders will be quarantined before dispatch so do not worry if you do not get your decorations immediately.

27 October 2020October Dress Up Day
On Friday 30th October, we are having a halloween day. We would please ask all children participating to bring their facemasks (safety for non-cook baking!). If you have them, please bring safe children's pumpkin carving implements. If they desire children may come to school wearing a costume. However, please don’t wear any scary or gory costumes, as the nursery and some little ones may be frightened. Face paint is allowed.
Sincerely, the Pupil Leadership Team at Mulbuie
