Many congratulations to our gardening club who took first place in this year’s pallet garden competition organised by ‘Keep Nairnshire Beautiful.’ The judges were very impressed with the use of recycled materials and the messages around sustainability, they also really liked the rainbow flowers. Very well done to Mrs McLean, Mrs McPhail and all gardening club members – you work hard all year to keep our gardens looking beautiful, thank you so much.
Our P7 pupils were just magnificent this morning, performing their Leavers’ assembly which was called ‘I’m a P7, get me out of here!’ They were very entertaining and showed great confidence and teamwork.
We are very proud of you all – well done.
What a marvellous day our P1, P1/2 and P6 classes had today at Nairn Beach. The sun shone all day and there was a lovely breeze coming in off the sea to keep everyone cool.
P6 Buddies did an absolutely fantastic job with their younger peers; organising games and activities and being so helpful and kind.
Let’s hope the summer holidays bring lots more sunny days for us to enjoy.
Everyone will sleep well tonight after all that that lovely sea air!
Millbank’s junior football team played in a friendly tournament against Rosebank yesterday evening. Millbank won two games and lost two games; everyone enjoyed the experience and lots of goals were scored. For some players it was their first formal playing experience. Many thanks to coach Derek Keir for organising the event.

Thanks very much to coach Mr Riley who trains the team every week and to Mr McPherson who supported the team today in Mr Riley’s absence.
Some of our pupils went to Nairn Academy today to give their views on what the new building should look like. What a great opportunity for them to talk to architects and learn about the design process.😊
Two Millbank netball teams travelled to Inverness on Friday to participate in a friendly competition against three Inverness schools. The red team won all their matches and the blue team won one out of three. At Millbank we are always keen to promote and facilitate involvement in all types of sport and it’s great that opportunities for competition are opening up again. Many thanks to Mrs Pilkington, netball coach and to all parent volunteers who assisted with transport. Mrs Pilkington reports that the pupils were a credit to Millbank – well done.
