Visit to Tranent Parish Church

Today we had an amazing visit to Tranent Parish Church for a Summer Blessing. It was a wonderful interactive service which all the children REALLY enjoyed. Thank you to Erica and Debbie for being so welcoming and planning such a great morning for us.

Mini Mudder

What a fantastic day we had yesterday for our annual Mini Mudder! Everyone had a wonderful time even though some of us were soaked by others in the burn!!

We are still getting all our pictures uploaded and sorted but will have LOADS more asap!

A huge THANK YOU must also go out to all the parents and carers who came along yesterday to lend a hand. We couldn’t have done it without you, especially Megan and her team who organise, set up and tidied up the whole event.

Daily Mile

Today everyone who has managed to run 8/9 laps of the playground consistently took park in our first official individually timed 1 mile run. Our fastest finisher today was Huw, with an impressive time of 8mins 38secs. He was closely followed by Oli and Alistair. However, there were a huge number of children who worked really had to pace themselves and complete the course in a super speedy time. Well done everyone! What a fantastic effort.
