Gergask School Rules

The pupils at Gergask made the school rules in 1997. The pupils and staff go over the school rules at the beginning of every year. The school rules are displayed in both classrooms and the entrance hall so nobody can forget them. We have school rules to keep us safe and happy.


Gergask Primary School is a small school but it is a very happy school in the Highlands of Scotland. This year there are 29 pupils in the school in 3 classes. You start in nursery and leave after P7 when you go to Kingussie High School.

We do lots of different things at Gergask and we would like to tell you about some of them.

Quite a lot of people like Maths and I like Maths too. I like doing times tables best of all.


We are lucky enough to have a Tuck shop at Gergask. We have cereal bars, chewy bars, lots of fruit, juice, Hot Cross buns and my favourite is Flap Jacks.

Every Friday we go up to the village hail to do P.E. I enjoy doing P.E because we do lots of different activities.

We have personal project time at Gergask. We have 15 minutes. If we have worked hard we get 15 minutes but if we haven’t we might lose 5 minutes! We do what we like for our personal project. I’m doing lop-eared rabbits this term.

Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday we have homework and we have a night off on Friday. If we earn 10 stamps we get Thursday night off too!

Sometimes we do story writing and sometimes non-fiction writing but I really like making up my own stories best of all.

Finally we have a very happy playground. We like playing catchy and other games too.


All the schools in Highland are trying to become Health Promoting Schools to improve the schools health. We have a Sports Club on Wednesday to keep us all fit. It includes sports like, football, rugby and hockey.

In the classroom we learn about mental and social health, which is also healthy even though it is not physical. The schools in Badenoch and Strathspey are doing a challenge to win Gold, Silver and Bronze awards for the amount of litter per pupil collect and recycle at home or at school. Also about once or twice a year we go lifter picking to keep the community healthy and clean. We have a wheel of responsibilities which keeps us happy and healthy.

Playground Friends, which is one of the jobs, makes sure that nobody is left out. Friends make us happy and healthy! We play together outside in the playground with all our friends at lunch and breaktime. We have a box of toys and some game cards. We also play Catchy, so you’re never bored at Gergask. Looking after the birds is social health and is another one or the duties on the wheel of responsibilities. We have to feed the birds by putting bird seed into the bird feeders when there is no more bird seed left in them. We have got water bottles in our classroom now. You can drink the right amount of water according to your weight, which is another way to be healthy. We have different teachers in the classroom through the week for different subjects, such as, art, music, R.M.E., P.E. and sometimes drama.
