Sports Day

The date  of Sports Day has had to change from the one shown in the recent newsletter. It is now one week later, Wednesday 10th June.

Raise funds for Malawi

On Saturday 23rd May North Berwick High School is running a car boot sale from 1.00-4.00pm.  The funds raised will go towards sending a group of senior pupils and staff to Malawi in June 2016. To book a place for your car, email or ring Carol on 01620 893611. The cost is £12 per car.

Sainsbury’s tokens count up

We know that we have over 500 tokens already. The shops have now stopped giving them out. Please bring in any you have sitting at home, and next week we’ll do the grand count!

Appeal for help on Thursday 7th

Thank you so much to all the parents and grandparents who have offered to help with our Garden and Grounds day tomorrow. We now have lots of people to help with the nursery and quite a good number to help with P1-3.

We are would really appreciate if any parents were free to help P4-7 between 11.00 and 12.30. P4-7 have some heavier task to perform which will require careful supervision.

Has anyone got some small shovels or a spade we could borrow?


Grass cuttings: can you help?

On Thursday, as part of our Grounds Improvement Day, we will be mixing some ingredients to make some good compost. We already have most of what we need, but really need some grass clippings to get the mixture going. Are you about to mow the lawn? Some bags of grass cuttings would be much appreciated! 🙂

If any parents are free on Thursday, we still need helpers!

The nursery will be in the garden 9.00 – 10.00.

P4-7 at 11.00 – 12.30

P1-3 at 1.15 – 2.15

Sainsbury’s tokens

Many thanks to all the Sainsbury’s shoppers who have been handing in Active Kids tokens. We are building up a good collection. The last day they are being given out is Tuesday 5th May. After that we will start counting them up, so please do hand in any you may have collected for us. Thank you!
