1. VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY REQUIRED!
‘DIG IT UP FOR THURSDAYS’
We need your help to make our school garden great again!
Our aim this year is to create a wildlife haven for butterflies, bees and birds.
To do this we will have to prepare the soil in our garden.
The first ‘Dig it up for Thursdays’ will take place on Thursday the 6th of March 2017 at Dunbar Primary School (Lochend Campus). The Eco-Committee are lucky to have volunteers from ‘Dunbar in Bloom’ to help and give advice on these days.
If you have a spare half an hour to an hour to help all you need to do is turn up on the specified date with a warm, waterproof coat, wellies or boots and a spade!
We will start at 12:45pm.
We hope to see you then!
2. LITERACY EVENT
Dear Parents and Carers
Reading, Spelling and Dyslexia for Nursery – Primary 7 Parents and Carers Event.
I would like to invite you to a Literacy Event at Dunbar Primary School – John Muir Campus on Wednesday 1st March 2017 6.45pm – 7.30pm in the main hall.
This session is specifically focused on Reading, Spelling and Dyslexia and is aimed at laying out the key principles from the new East Lothian Local Authority Guidance paper (Reading and Spelling), concerning good practice in the teaching of reading and spelling together with the new guidance regarding the identification of dyslexia.
The session will be delivered by representatives from the Educational Psychology Service – Lynne Binnie, Principal Educational Psychologist and Sarah Williams, Educational Psychologist supporting Dunbar Primary School.
This session has already been delivered to all of the teaching and support staff team at Dunbar Primary and we would like to ensure that parents are aware of this new guidance and how it will impact in our school.
I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 1st March.

5. KIDICAL MASS GOES TO THE STORE
Kidical Mass Goes to The Store on Sunday 26th February
10am-1pm: meet at the Bleachingfield Centre
Join members of Dunbar Cycling Group for a family bike ride to the Store at Belhaven Fruit Farm – there won’t be much fruit but the cakes are great! We can stop for some refreshments and a run around at the playground.
This gentle paced ride will use the cycle paths and quiet roads, with a different route home if we want to avoid the hill! We’ll cover around 6 miles and make sure we don’t leave anyone behind.
Please let Suzanne know if you can make it by leaving a message here or emailing email@example.com
