A few reminders for P7
- Pupils in the ‘Alice The Musical’ chorus should bring a white pillow slip to school as soon as possible. P7 – please ask permission before taking one as these are going to be turned into your costume and so will not be usable after the show!
- All books must be returned to the library as the library is now closed. Please bring into school any books you still have at home.
- We are on the hunt for ‘animal themed’ onesies! If anyone has one at home could you bring it into school as it might come in handy for the show!
Remember your packed lunch tomorrow – hopefully the weather will be kind to us for our trip to Lauderdale Park!
On Friday 12th June the rugby communities of East Lothian celebrated the arrival of the Webb Ellis Cup at North Berwick Rugby Club with a festival of youth rugby and nine of our P7 pupils took part.
Teams from Dunbar, Haddington, Tranent, Musselburgh, Prestonpans and North Berwick took part a festival of 7s for U16, U14 and P7s.
Guests included former Scotland International and SRU Rugby Ambassador Chris Patterson, Scotland rugby coach, Vern Cotter, Scotland 7s player, Chris Dean and Lochie, the Scotland team mascot!
We have trips coming up & show rehearsals at John Muir Campus. The P7s will require a packed lunch on the following days:
Wed 24th June (Lauderdale Park Trip)
Thurs 25th June (Show Rehearsal)
Mon 29th June (Dress Rehearsal to P1 – P6)
Wed 1st July (Final Performance to Parents)
A reminder that P7s will only be dismissed from John Muir Campus after the performance on Wed 3rd July at 3.30pm. On all other dates they will be dismissed as normal from Lochend Campus.
If your child receives a free school meal then a packed lunch will always be ordered for them. Thank you for your continued support!

P7A having fun at the Dunbar Reads Aloud celebration!
We started rehearsals for Alice The Musical yesterday and the P7 pupils are very excited! We have actors, singers, artists, backstage crew and a fantastic chorus raring to go! You may hear some of the songs at home as they are very catchy!
Wednesday 1st July (1.15 – 3.30pm) – P7 ‘Alice The Musical’ performance & leavers presentation
All P7 parents/carers welcome. Please note this will take place at John Muir Campus because we will be using the stage. P7 pupils will be dismissed from John Muir Campus at 3.30pm.
Alice’s adventures begin when she follows White Rabbit down a rabbit-hole and falls down, down, down. Alice is an ordinary little girl who lives an ordinary sort of life, until the day she finds herself in the most wonderful world of mad tea parties and remarkable characters like the Mad Hatter, the Duchess, the Cheshire Cat and the Mock Turtle. As everything grows ‘curiouser and curiouser’, Alice is delighted to find that nothing in Wonderland is the least bit ordinary!
Our literacy focus at the moment is based on this very famous story by Lewis Carroll. This will provide a valuable opportunity to build upon the textual analysis skills gained during our ‘Holes’ novel study.
