A huge THANK YOU to Erica and Debbie from Tranent Parish Church, who came along to our Easter Assembly today. We really enjoyed singing with them and acting out the Easter story with them.
Also a massive WELL DONE! to all the boys and girls who took part in the assembly. From messages of thanks, to Easter traditions around the world, and a super song about new baby chicks, the children did really well and everyone was very proud of their performance.
We had a brilliant time this morning searching the playground for Easter Eggs.

Most of the campers had a better sleep last night – we tired them out! An impressive third shower for some then breakfast and a Happy Birthday to Huw. Packing presented a challenge – how on earth did Mum fit it all in and just how do you get a sleeping bag in its bag?
Final activities before lunch and home-scavenger hunt in the sleet and fencing. School will text out estimated time of arrival. See you all soon- get the washing machine prepared for action!
A fantastic afternoon on the water despite the cold! All survived with only two wet campers! Tuck money spent and mostly eaten followed by well earned dinner. Now all wrapping up again for climbing in the dark. Can’t believe day two almost done.
After a surprisingly quiet night, the campers were up and about early. More showering plus room tidying-teachers remain impressed!
Activities so far have been low ropes and blind trail. Weather is dry but very cold. On the pond this afternoon for canoes and kayaks.
Sorry no photos although we’ve taken lots. The wifi here is very restrictive. They will all be uploaded once we’re back.
After an uneventful journey P6/7 arrived safely at Lockerbie. They have already had the chance to abseil and go on a zip wire! All now in bed – well nearly- Mrs Hamilton and Mrs Berry very surprised by the arguments over who went in the shower first. Hopefully lights out by 10…!
