John Muir Reward

P4-7 have started work towards their John Muir Reward. We have found out about John Muir – What excited him, worried him, what he stood for. Many of our questions got answered at John Muir’s Birth Place.
We discovered our wild place behind the school, Peffer Burn. We used all our senses, looked through our legs like John Muir, and saw many things we liked. Unfortunately we also noticed lots of dog mess and litter. Monday the 8th we will explore the burn with the ranger. Exciting!

Food Bank East Lothian

The Fundraising Group organised a food collection for Food Bank East Lothian. Peter Dicker visited our school and explained to all children how the food bank helps people who really need it. We were warmly welcomed when we dropped off  81 kilo’s of food.

Thank you very much for all your donations.

World of Work Week – Workers Wanted!

We are holding a World of Work Week starting on Monday 6th February. Our aim is to raise awareness of the jobs people do and of the qualities needed to do those jobs. We are looking for parents or other members of the community to tell us about their working life. We are especially looking for people who work in a science, technology, maths or engineering field. If you are able to come in, answer a few questions and inspire some young minds please call Mrs Cameron on 01620 880241. Thank you!
