Health & Wellbeing
‘Buddies’ is a well-established system used in Sgoil Bhaile a' Mhanaich. Pupils in P1-3 meet with a ‘buddy’ from the upper stage classes for 1 hour a week and become friends. The buddying system encourages younger children to use their ‘buddy’ as a source of support and information both in school and out in the playground. Pupils take part in a range of activities during ‘Buddy’ time including paired reading, active play, art & craft, board games etc. In the Gaelic class, pupils converse in Gaelic therefore strengthening the use of the language in a natural and informal way.
Every Friday the whole school comes together to celebrate pupil achievements. Certificates are awarded to a Sgoillear na Seachdain (Pupil of the week) and Rionnag na Gaelic (Gaelic Star) in each class.
