We are really looking forward to welcoming all of our pupils back to school this week.
Have a fantastic summer holiday when it comes! See you again all in August.
Stockbridge Primary Nursery have a drop in “Open Morning” for prospective parents on Friday 7th June. If you are interested in your child joining our fantastic nursery after the summer holidays, please feel free to pop by between 9am and 10am!
Let’s get our steps up, Stockbridge! May is National Walking month. Make an effort to walk to school in spite of the lack of sunshine…! 🙂
Over the past few years the school has been successful in getting grants for various projects from the Aviva community fund – we have had 4 different grants in total worth £4000 awarded over 3 years for iPads, playground markings, playground stage and some new playground equipment (still to be purchased following the building work). The Parent Council and Friends of Stockbridge School are applying for a grant of £1000 each this year with one to fund new iPads and the other for STEM equipment.
WE NEED YOU TO VOTE TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN GETTING THE FUNDING!!!
Voting is easy, and takes only 2 minutes, or even less if you’ve previously voted and have an Aviva login. The links to the 2 different projects for voting are below, or within the Aviva Community fund site if you search for ‘Stockbridge’ you will find the 2 projects.

Stockbridge digital skills for life: New ipads – https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/voting/project/view/4-2684
Based on past experience we need over 100 people to vote (equivalent to 1000 votes) for each project to be successful so we need as many people as possible to vote, and all your friends and relatives can vote as well. Please help us by sharing the links to family and friends to help us secure this funding.
We will send out further reminders before voting closes in about 4 weeks and will also hand out flyers to remind people.
Your help and co-operation is much appreciated 🙂

After breakfast, chores and dorm inspections, we met our instructor to get going with our first activity.
We had an adventure packed day today! We started at the climbing wall. We got a bit of practise on the indoor walls but quickly proved how capable we were and so it was off to the quarry! I was so impressed with how well the group supported one another and proud of those that faced their fear of heights.
After lunch we went out canoeing on the Loch. We had great fun playing head shoulders knees and toes and battleships. We all managed to stay fairly dry….apart from Miss Stewart who fell in 3 times!
We tackled the bikes first thing this morning. We learned a few skills such as slow peddling, body weight challenges and bum on a wheel. We did the trails through puddle lane, attempting to get every puddle on the way and seeing who was the wettest and the muddiest! We played fox and hound as well.
We went climbing on the climbing wall this afternoon. We were put through our paces going across the wall using different moves. We all managed to get up to the top of the climbing wall. We all did the abseil down the wall and then some managed the extra challenge of the overhang.
We went orienteering first thing this morning. We started off with a challenge in pairs to draw a map of the library. We then had to use a map of the centre to find letters hidden inside and outside of the building. After managing to unscramble these, we used electronic tags to find different posts outside the centre to and complete the course first! We spent a little time on the low ropes course together with some other challenges.
Wow! What an afternoon we had. Everyone had an amazing time on the mountain bikes and what enthusiasm and energy we had! We loved tearing down puddle lane, going through the mud, racing through the forests and other trails.
We had tea and cake and enjoyed some free time before dinner. We went to the tuck shop and wrote our diaries. We worked with Bonaly in a team game of Cluedo where we had to find clues hidden in the ground floor rooms. Everyone got to sleep really well.
