Maritime World Day (25/09/2014)

Today, we have celebrated World Maritime Day.
The pupils have worked in teams which have been made up of children and young adults across the school. They have developed their knowledge and skills in navigation, knot tying, the role of Scapa Flow in WW1 and WW2, the scuttling of the Fleet and the sinking of the Royal Oak. They have also developed their coordination skills through a battleship activity and undertaken a music quiz. Finally, they have learnt about the St Kilda mailboat, having seen a replica which was launched at St Kilda  and found by Neil Carter after it landed on Papa Stronsay .
It has been a real pleasure  to see the whole school working effectively in teams and reinforces to me the wonderful relationship between the pupils with such a wide age range. A truly unique experience!
