Last week, our very own Mrs Douglas had an interview for the permanent Head Teacher post at Abbotswell, unfortunately her holidays didn’t begin until it was completed.
The outcome was that Mrs Douglas is the preferred candidate for the permanent Head Teacher post at our school, Abbotswell School!!!!!
We, as a school, are absolutely delighted with the decision as she has been a dedicated leader since taking up the role in November 2019! She has lead us as a community through the final term of school this year during the Lockdown with incredible professionalism and we are excited for the new term to begin in August!
Please join me in celebration and congratulations!
Mrs Tysom set a challenge for the whole school to take part in over the month of June. The challenge was to try and recreate a famous piece of artwork in whatever way that you can, using whatever you wanted!
Have a look at the masterpieces that our participants created. We certainly have budding artists in our midst!
Thank you all for taking part in this challenge!
Week 10 = 40 responses!
The final Bonus Ball survey for this school session focused on skills for the future.
I can hardly believe that it is that time of year again when we celebrate all the amazing things the children have accomplished this year.
With being on lock down things are going to be really different as we are not in the nursery.
The whole school picnic is on Wednesday and we are hoping that you and your family join in and have a picnic of your own. All the staff who are in school that day will be participating in a socially distanced picnic and will post the photos on the school twitter feed.
This year we are supporting CHAS (Children’s Hospices Across Scotland) and are encouraging everyone during their picnic to wear a colour of the rainbow or even all of the colours of the rainbow – be as bold as you want to be!
The children can also use their great skills to help make their own snacks/ food for their picnic. We would love you to share any photos on your ILD or on our twitter feed @abbotswell
Teddy Bear Picnic
We have arranged for the Nursery to have our Teddy Bear Picnic Virtually on Thursday Afternoon.
We have sent out Google Meet Invites with the link for you to come along to our picnic with your Teddy – remember to bring a snack!
We hope you can make it to the Google Meet and can’t wait to see you all and your Teddy Bears!
P3/4 should have been going on their summer class outing this week so instead we headed off for a week of virtual fun at Disney World In Florida! Our whole week has been Disney themed activities and we have also been enjoying lots of outdoor fun in the sunshine too this week! Here is a snapshot gallery to show what some of us have been getting up to!
Once again we’re encouraging everyone to take part – children, teenagers, adults, families, even teachers! Aberdeen Reads runs from Saturday 27 June to Saturday 24 August
You can sign up for the Challenge online from Saturday 27 June 2020.
