On Friday Class 13 went on an all day trip to the Burn o’Vat near Dinnet.
We had a wonderful day out and the weather was excellent for exploring and walking.
There was also an information station on site which we found very interesting and informative.
We had a picnic, albeit on the bus, but we tidied up well afterwards!
A very pleasant day out was had by all!

Thanks to everyone that has sent in items for our Clothing Exchange. Please remember that you’re welcome to pop in and browse any time. It’s a great way to save money and help the planet by passing things on that our children and young people have grown out of.
We’ve got clothing in a wider range of sizes now. All sizes of clothing are welcome as our pupils go from age 3-18.
We are pleased to announce that we now have a Uniform Exchange in the front reception area of Orchard Brae. We have a small stock of clothing at present including footwear, trousers, school sweatshirts and polo shirts. We also have some bodysuits in smaller sizes. Free sanitary products will be available at all times.
You are welcome to come in and browse at any time, taking what you need for your child.
Donations of clothing (footwear, outdoor jackets or trousers, school uniform) are welcome and can be sent in with your child – please pop a note into the diary so that we know they are for the Uniform Exchange. Our pupils are aged 3 – 18, so all sizes are welcome including adult sizes.
Let’s help ourselves by saving money and passing on clothes that our children have outgrown, and help the environment too by re-using good clothing.
Room 12 are holding another doll raffle, to be drawn at the Christmas Fair on 30th November 2019, all proceeds to Orchard Brae.
Included in the prize is a beautiful wicker basket bed, bedding, the doll and several outfits – from a bride’s dress, to clown’s outfit to pyjamas and matching dressing gown and more. Doll donated and bedding and outfits beautifully made by the mum of one of Room 12’s class teachers.
Tickets to win all this are £1! Come and see us at the fair to buy your ticket!
There will also be many dolly clothes at our stall available to buy separately. These are unique, handmade and better than any dolls clothes you’ll see in the shops!
Everyone enjoyed the Potted Sports organised by our PE Department on Wednesday. Thank you to everyone involved for the hard work that went into this, including our Howes Hoose pupils who supported at the stations. We all had a great time moving around in our class groups, finishing up with a running ‘marathon’ for any Secondary pupils wishing to participate. They were well supported by those opting to spectate.
At the end of May we set off on public transport to explore the Punch and Judy exhibition at the Maritime Museum.
The exhibition told us the history of Punch and Judy and how it developed in this country especially in seaside towns like Aberdeen, Blackpool etc.
There were also many props for children to try on and hold as you can see from the photos.
As part of our Interdisciplinary theme ‘Our World of Rights’, one of our pupils has been out and about on public transport locating the Nuart in the city centre.
He has seen how the art work is carried out using “cherry pickers” for the artists to reach the highest points of their art work.
He will keep a photographic progression of the art work and exhibit his findings on a notice board in the school for all to read, enjoy and gain information from.
