Bedtime Stories Party – Thursday 21st November

To finish our Book Week celebrations, pupils are invited to come dressed in pyjamas to take part in our bedtime story party.  We will be coming together to watch an Authors Live Event hosted by the Scottish Book Trust which is based around ‘The Gruffalo’ in Gaelic and Scots.

Book Swap – Thursday 21st November

We will be launching our BIG BOOK SWAP

An opportunity is being offered to all staff, parents, families and chaplains to have a tour of Stornoway Masjid on Wednesday 20th November, anytime between 4pm and 7pm.  Yasmin (Halima Aziz) who has chaplaincy responsibility for Muslim families in Stornoway Primary School, will be conducting the tours.  She will also be able to answer any questions relating to the mosque.


All families are welcome to this open informal family learning event.  Tea/coffee/juice and fruit will be available for all visitors.


The canteen menu remains the same as last session and is available on the website.

Please note that at Stornoway Primary we have pupils who have a severe allergy to nuts, we request that you check all snacks (Snickers, Topic bars, Kinder Bueno bars etc) sent in as play pieces and in lunch boxes. It is imperative that no eggs and no snacks containing nuts are brought in.
