Lifeboat Theatre Show

All the primary 6 classes had a brilliant visit from Catherine Wheels Theatre Company. Each class also had a drama workshop the week before the show.The show told the true story about two girls from Liverpool and London who were evacuated from Britain to Canada and lost (and then found) their brother Louis along the way when the ship they were on was torpedoed by a German U boat during the Second World War. They had an amazing adventure!!

Charlie’s Challenge

Charlies Challenge on PhotoPeach

Charlie marked the anniversary of the operation to increase his mobility by undertaking a triathlon.  He was supported by family, friends and the local community.  Over £1,500 was raised for Project Play to continue their work to develop the playground at Law.  Well done to Charlie and the boys and girls who took part.

Big Sing

What a wonderful way to end the school term.   We had our Big Sing today where we enjoyed carols, Christmas Songs, festive head gear and being together to raise money for Nordoff Robbins music therapy charity.  There was even a special appearance by the staff dance troupe, The Christmas Jumpers”, a sight that may never be seen again!

All the fun raised £352.40 today, added to the Little Sing money from North Berwick Nursery School and the donation of £200 from the PTA and some private donations we raised £850.

Well Done to the school community.

Fantastic Fair!

The P7 Christmas Fair last Friday was voted a great success by pupils and teachers and raised £1365 towards the cost of transport to Loch Insh camp. We did market research to find out what people wanted to do at the Fair and asked for sponsorship from local shops. The following shops helped us out with prizes and equipment: Stop ‘n’ Shop, Sugar Mountain, Tesco, The Cooperative, Gannon Sports, Semi-chem and Boots. Thank you so much to all those people! We have just done some Customer Evaluation and the feedback was really positive!

Church Services

The church service for P5 & P6 is at 1pm today in The Abbey Church and the service for P3 and P4 is at 1.45pm in St Andrew Blackadder. Parents are very welcome at both services. The first service will finish in time for you to cross the road to the second service if you have children in both. If you want still more Christmas, come and hear P5,6 and 7 singing carols in the back playground at 2.45pm!

Christmas Jumper Extravaganza! for SAVE THE CHILDREN

On Friday 12th December many children and teachers, from all different year stages, wore a Christmas jumper to school to raise money for Save the Children with some even creating their own jumper designs. Everyone who wore a jumper made a £1 donation and we made £186. The great news is that the Government will match the donations made through fundraising. A big well done to everyone who participated on Friday, the Charity Committee are delighted! In addition, the overall winner was given 100 house points and class winners got 50 house points each.
