Etape Loch Ness volunteers needed!

Are you a morning person? Etape Loch Ness needs your help!

Primary 6/7 ~ 2020/21 ~ Miss Mullin

Calling all Morning Larks!

Help is needed for Etape Loch Ness on Saturday 22nd August.

Several volunteer marshals are needed to cover between the Clansman Hotel and Urquhart Castle from 5am-9am.

Each marshal will earn a £20-£25 donation to their choice of group (e.g. Glenurquhart Primary School)

The organisers are minimising contact on the event but the marshals generally have little to do with the cyclist other than directions and making sure spectators are not in the way. 

Police will be in the village, marshals radio/call in IF there is a problem.

It is a CLOSED road – unless escorted no vehicles on or cross the A82.

All gear needed for the day will be provided.  Marshals will be provided with information sheets with contacts, their marshal point, how to use the radio and any other information.  3 locations require a flag and whistle, that will be provided (these…

As we close for the Summer break, we would like to wish our P7 children the very best for their move up to High School and wish all our families a wonderful Summer break. We look forward to welcoming everyone back and hearing about all your adventures on Tuesday, 17th August.


Since we returned from lockdown, we have had a relaxed policy on uniform within the school to support families as much as possible. Following the summer break we would like to ask the children to come to school in school uniform again. Glenurquhart Primary uniform colours are red and black. These can be with or without our school logo. Red check dress are also worn by some. For the bottom half, these should be comfortable and these and shoes should be suitable for outdoor learning. More information, including where uniform can be ordered, can be found on our website here; http://www.glenurquhartprimary.org.uk/for-parents/school-uniform/

Information on how to apply for assistance with clothing can be found here; https://www.highland.gov.uk/info/899/schools_-_grants_and_benefits/10/free_school_meals_and_assistance_with_clothing

Thank you for your support with this.

Prize giving and leavers’ gifts

Many Congratulations to our prize winners and best of luck to our P7s as they prepare to move on to S1.

Primary 6/7 ~ 2020/21 ~ Miss Mullin

This afternoon, each of the P7s were gifted with a scientific calculator from our Parent Council. These are recommended by the maths department at Glen Urquhart High School and will be very useful to our P7s throughout their secondary education.

The Parent Council and Primary School Staff wish our P7s all the best as they move on to S1.

All set for S1 STEM subjects!

Three of our P7s wanted to thank the Parent Council on behalf of all the P7s.

Each year, the P7 Citizenship Cups are awarded to 2 pupils who have made significant contributions to the life of the school. These are voted for by all staff and P7s.

This year’s recipients are Meadow and Joshua. Many congratulations to them both!

P7 Citizenship Awards

In memory of our much-loved “Miss Duncan” we also recognise pupils who have made an outstanding effort throughout the year…
