In common with many schools around Scotland and the United Kingdom, we have recently become aware of a number of Tik Tok videos created by pupils.

The content of some of these Tik Toks included images of staff used without their permission and, in some cases, wholly inappropriate comments about staff and pupils.

If you are aware that your son or daughter is using Tik Tok please reinforce with them what is acceptable and what is unacceptable content. If you are not familiar with Tik Tok the attached checklist might be helpful

Bidh sgoilearan AS1-4 a’ gabhail pàirt ann an iomairt airson cleachdadh na Gàidhlig a bhrosnachadh le #GàidhligSaMhàin no #gaelvember a-rithist am bliadhna. Gheibh a h-uile sgoilear cunntas ClasDojo is bidh aca ri ‘stampaichean’ fhaighinn airson gnìomhan sònraichte co-cheangailte ri Gàidhlig m.e. ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig do charaid, a’ cleachdadh Gàidhlig air na meadhanan-sòisealta no a’ cruthachadh podcast anns a’ Ghàidhlig. Gheibh an sgoilear leis an àireamh stampaichean as motha duais £25 agus bidh trì duaisean eile ann luach £10.

After last year’s success, S1-4 Gàidhlig pupils are be taking part in a competition to encourage the use of Gaelic across the school. Based on the social media campaign #gaelvember, pupils will each receive a ClassDojo account which they should aim to fill with ‘stamps’ earned for completing tasks which promote the use of Gaelic e.g. creating motivational Gaelic posters, writing a Gaelic social media post, creating a podcast in Gaelic, teaching a friend/family member some Gaelic. Evidence should be presented to a member of the Gaelic department staff to earn a stamp. The pupil with the most stamps at the end of November will receive an Amazon voucher worth £25 and three runners up will each receive £10.

Dear All

 

Our next Virtual Pines Session with Thriving Families and Alison Footitt from the National Autistic Society is on Thursday 2nd December 2021.

 

Christmas can be a very stressful time for families and having some strategies to support your young person might help. Shona MacPherson from the Pines Speech & Language Therapy team has lots of ideas!

 

The session will run on Microsoft Teams, and is easy to join from a computer or mobile device, you don’t need to speak if you would sooner not, or have your camera on.
