Thank you so much for such a special Elphy send off! I’ve really enjoyed working at this wonderful wee school and will miss the children lots. It’s not many retiring teachers that can say they were dressed as a pirate and played a football match against the P7’s……and won! A great memory to finish on!
Thank you parents and children for all the lovely gifts, beautiful cards and very kind words! I was overwhelmed by your generosity! What a lovely class and school to end my career on. It’s been fun and I’ll miss you all! Have a great summer. I promise to visit you sometime.

Following many requests for a talent show, the pupil council discussed running this event at the end of term. They placed posters around the school and encouraged people to sign up with their acts. The P7’s, Jessica and Leon, organised the event. They both did a fabulous job taking turns to compere the afternoon. The rest of the pupil council members were judges. When they were impressed with a performance, they rang their individual bells to show their appreciation. The judges gave positive and often cleverly worded comments. They were much more respectful than Simon Cowell!
Well done also to all the participants in our ‘Elphy’s got Talent’ Show! The performances were very varied with all ages of children from P1-7 entertaining us with their amazing talents. What a wonderful afternoon!
The audience were treated to an array of dancing; highland, tap, and disco. There were synchronised indoor and outdoor gymnastic displays, and several children chose to sing solos. The audience clearly enjoyed the wide range of songs.
There was also great applause for incredible animal impersonations, some funny jokes, a lively puppet show and super Power Ranger moves!
In the last act, the children encouraged the audience to join in with the dancing- Gangnam style!
There is an abundance of talent at Elphinstone Primary!
Thanks to Megan and her team as well as all the pupils who were sponsored……..the final amount raised from the Mini-Mudder was an amazing £915. Well done all!

Pictures of another successful mini-mudder! Thanks to all parents who organised this and set up all the obstacles.
We enjoyed the mini mudder today with some tricky obstacles and LOTS of sunshine. Tired out but happy we then finished our morning with a picnic snack!
Having won the cluster ‘Little and Large’ cooking competition Euan and Lauren were through to the final. They did fantastically well and were awarded second place! Well done! All of us at Elphinstone Primary are very proud of you!
