Important Reminders

Parking
For the safety of all pupils we must again insist that when collecting or dropping off pupils that nobody parks on the double yellow lines outside the main school gate. This illegal parking is a safety hazard for the pupils. Also, as parking is limited, please park outwith the school grounds when dropping off and collecting pupils from nursery and school.

Smoking
Can we remind all parents/carers that smoking within the school and surrounding grounds is not allowed as all council premises are smoke free areas.

Leavers’ Assembly at Loretto Chapel, Thursday 2nd July 2015.

We had a our whole assembly at the church this morning after a beautiful sunny walk there where older classes had buddied up with their younger classes whom they have worked with this session.

We would like to thank the P7 teachers for working with the children to create an amazing published yearbook, printed for each child which were all presented this morning along with certificates awarded by Mrs Ogden,  to celebrate the children’s attainment and wider achievement,  over the course of their school year,  and Pinkie career. The Pinkie parents kindly funded the cost of these books to enable every child to have as a special keepsake. We would also like to thank Ms Gray and Ms Smith and the Pinkie Strings for a super performance and their hard work over the year. The Reverend Andy Keulemans provided a very engaging talk to pupils of P7 and in a fun way, stressed the importance of moving forward; What do we want to project ourselves to be? Beau Mangan from primary 4a also sang a solo, ‘Thinking Out Loud’ which was amazing.

We would like to thank all representatives of Windsor Park Tenants and Residents Association for providing and supporting trophies of achievement and to Anti-bullying East Lothian for attending our assembly to present an award to celebrate the demonstration of outstanding skills and qualities,  awarded after selection from nominations across East Lothian.

Trophies awarded were:  ‘Upholding our Pinkie Values’ of Responsible, Respecting, Resilient, Achieving and Nurturing: Jamie Macintosh,  Best progress P1-3 Moffat Trophy: Connie Blakeney, P4-7 Windsor Trophy: Abbie Higgins, Pryde Trophy: Music: Ella Gallagher and the Anti bullying East Lothian, ABEL, Quaich award,  to a pupil displaying outstanding qualities: Anna Reid. Sports Champion medals went to Callum Abbot and Dannuelle Anderson. Well done all!

Finally, many thanks to all parents and carers who helped today and for all parents who came to join with us, at this end of year assembly to celebrate success and say good bye to a most wonderful Primary 7 year group, who we most sincerely hope, will do well and pop back in to see us all. Aim high P7. We want to hear great things about you all!

We had a great  visit from the honest lad (Kieran Davidson) and lass (Mhairi Braby) and their attendants (Claire Colver, Jamie Cameron and Hope Hardie) on Thursday morning.

Pinkie pupil, Victor (P1) presented Mhairi Braby  with an Amazon voucher and  Benjamin (P7) also presented Kieran Davidson with an Amazon voucher.

The whole school lined the drive as the party left with a clapping and cheering send off!

We would like to wish everyone associated with the Honest Toun Association and our community a great festival week and year ahead.  More details can be found out about at the Honest Toun Association website.  Hope everyone can go to a whole range of events planned for.

Instrumental Music

Following recent testing, all spaces for violin/cello lessons have been filled. If your child did not receive a letter offering tuition in either instrument on this occasion, there may be opportunities to begin at a later date if spaces become available. There will definitely be further opportunities to be considered for instrumental music tuition when children transfer to secondary school
