Ross Rocks Reading!

On September 9th 2014, P7 took part in the launch event of Ross Rocks Reading at Ross High School.  They decided to talk about P7′s favourite books by hosting an episode of “The Book Factor!”.  Ewan and Connor were fantastic hosts (Ant and Dec should be worried!), our contestants gave excellent auditions and our judges were book-tastic! Also thanks to our behind the scenes art and design team who created great book covers for Gangsta Granny (David Walliams), Tribes (Catherine Macphail) and Tom Gates’ Excellent Excuses (Liz Pichon).

Macmerry Welcomes the Queen’s Baton!

Macmerry Welcomes the Queen’s Baton on PhotoPeach

Macmerry pupils, parents and staff were absolutely delighted to welcome Clyde, the mascot, and The Queen’s Baton to our school. Having come from Tranent, the baton and Clyde decided to come into school and show all the boys and girls the beautiful baton that is currently making its way around the country. In preparation for this exciting visit, the children made their own batons, designed Clyde masks and coloured different flags from the Commonwealth. We sang songs for Clyde and asked him a range of questions about the Commonwealth Games.
What a great experience that was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
