‘Wear Red to Remember’ at Aberlady


Last Thursday, to commemorate Remembrance Day, the Charity Committee encouraged everyone to wear something red to remember  those who have fought in the wars for us. We also ran a competition to design a poster reminding us of the importance of Remembrance Day. K. won the competition with a brilliant poster. 

We raised over £120 for Poppyscotland. Well done, everyone

Last Day at School 2010

We finished school on Thursday with a fabulous Talent Concert. We have so many talented children in Aberlady – dancers, singers, acrobats. Is there no end to these children’s talents?

At 3 o’clock, our leavers left the school through the ‘walk of honour’. We wish all our leavers the very best of luck in their new schools – and a great summer holidays for everyone!


Celebration of Achievement Assembly

We had lots to celebrate at our special assembly this afternoon.

Firstly, Miss Curran told us about the huge amount of donations we have collected for The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home. We have collected food, toys, blankets. chews, bowls and treats for cats and dogs. Each pupil who donated was given a raffle ticket and the names of eight children were drawn to go with Miss Curran to deliver the donations next Monday. The lucky pupils are: Connor (P5), Kirsty A. (P5), Ruth (P4), Holly (P4), Lauren (P1), , Katie, Rex and Alexander (Nursery).

Next, Miss Curran announced the good news that F. had won first prize and V. was one of three runners-up in a writing competition run by a book publishing company. They had to describe their favourite Scottish mythical creature. F. wrote about a Loch Nymph and V. wrote about a Gormflurry. We are very proud of them both. They will both receive special signed copies of books, and F. will be guest of honour at a reception at her local library.


Then Miss Curran congratulated pupils who had won swimming prizes. They had won medals, and a quaich and a huge trophy. Well done, everyone.

Next, we voted for the positions of captains and vice-captains of our School Houses for next year. Everyone gave very good speeches and the voting was close. The following positions were decided.

Pefferburn House: Captain: Rory, Vice-Captain: Iona
Gosford House: Captain: Davy, Vice-Captain: Eli
Craigielaw House: Captain: Stuart, Vice-Captains: Freyja and Ben
Luffness House: Captain: Ellis, Vice-Captains: Eve and Ellen


Next, we sang ‘You Are A Star’, led by Rory, Davy and Jamie, to celebrate everyone’s special successes.

Finally, Miss Curran revealed the new compost bin that H. had designed. It is very colourful and will certainly encourage everyone to compost waste matter such as apple cores and banana skins. Well done, H.!
