There will be an Annual General Meeting for the Cockenzie Gala Committee on Wednesday 24th September at 7.00pm in Port Seton Community Centre.
The Gala is an important part of the village’s heritage and is enjoyed by many children throughout the school. In order for this historic event to continue again this year it is vital that we have support from the local community. Many of you will remember having older children take part in the Gala, or indeed being involved in it yourself.
The Committee are looking for approximately 16 people to be involved with planning and fundraising throughout the year. The more helpers we have the better - more hands make lighter work as they say! It will also help us forge stronger links between the school, the Community Centre and wider community in general.
If you are able to attend all or part of the meeting and feel that you might have some ideas / services / skills to offer (no matter how small), we would be delighted to see you at the meeting.
The Primary One trial lunch will take place this Friday 29th August at the following times:
- P1T – Miss Letchford 11.00am
- P1B – Mrs Barnett 11.15am
- P1/2 – Miss Clarke 11.30am
If you/your child has opted to trial the school lunch, please arrive for the appropriate time (noted above) by the main door. We would be obliged if you could leave school by 12.10pm.
Primary 7 uniforms are now available for collection from the school, having arrived on Friday afternoon. You can pop into school first thing on Monday or pupils can collect them from the dining room during morning break. Once again we apologise for the delay.
Primary One children will start tomorrow, 21st August, 9.30am until 11:30am. During this time, Parents and Carers are more than welcome to join Mrs MacKinnon in the assembly hall where two workshops will be run on phonics and numeracy.
On Friday 22nd August, Primary One children will attend from 8:45am to 11:50am. The following week (25-29 Aug), the children will attend 8:45am to 12:00noon prior to attending full-time from 1 September.
The staff at Cockenzie Nursery and Primary School would like to wish you all a lovely summer holiday. School re-opens for pupils on Thursday 21st August 2014.
Sam Hawthorn from Roots and Fruits will be running a gardening club for children accompanied by an adult during the summer holidays starting on 15th July, on Tuesdays (3.00pm to 5.00pm) and Wednesdays (10.00am to 12 noon) in our Outdoor Classroom/Garden area next to In Bloom.
Please note that the children will be the responsibility of the accompanying adult.
This is part of the Garden Plate project being run by Roots and Fruits.

We are hoping to start an after school club/session in our Outdoor Classroom/Garden area next to In Bloom.
Worshops are being led by Sam Hawthorne from Roots & Fruits and the next one will be held tomorrow, Thursday 3rd July from 3.20pm – 4.20pm. If your children wish to attend, they must have an adult with them. Green fingers not required!
Hopefully some of the families might have some time over the summer holidays that they could commit to helping with watering and weeding, etc. but this could be discussed with Sam if you are able to attend tomorrow night. Also, the group could continue into the start of next session – further details will be provided in due course.
Active Schools is responsible for running a number of activity clubs offered to your child in the local area. We would like your views on a variety of activities that your child could participate in, so that we can focus on activities that parents would like their child participating in.
The survey should take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.
- Responses to this survey can remain anonymous.
- Results of this survey will be published on the school website as well as the Active East Lothian website.
Your help will be invaluable and greatly appreciated
