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.


Elphy’s World of Work Conference

P3/4/5 are organising a conference in school to discover more about the world of work and positive destinations after high school.  They have persuaded staff from Ross High, Edinburgh University and QMU to attend as speakers!  The conference is for the children only but we do need some help from parents who might like to share some of their (positive!) experiences of training and work.  If you would be happy to speak to the children at the conference about on the job training, apprenticeships or college or university and how this has helped you in your job we would love to hear from you.  The conference is in the morning of Friday 2nd June.
