Garden Plate Gardening Club

GardenSam Hawthorn from Roots and Fruits will be running a gardening club for children accompanied by an adult during the summer holidays starting on 15th July, on Tuesdays (3.00pm to 5.00pm) and Wednesdays (10.00am to 12 noon) in our Outdoor Classroom/Garden area next to In Bloom.

Please note that the children will be the responsibility of the accompanying adult.

This is part of the Garden Plate project being run by Roots and Fruits.

All Welcome

The Garden Plate Project – School club/sessions

We are hoping to start an after school club/session in our Outdoor Classroom/Garden area next to In Bloom.

Worshops are being led by Sam Hawthorne from Roots & Fruits and the next one will be held tomorrow, Thursday 3rd July from 3.20pm – 4.20pm.    If your children wish  to attend, they must have an adult with them.  Green fingers not required!

Hopefully some of the families might have some time over the summer holidays that they could commit to helping with watering and weeding, etc. but this could be discussed with Sam if you are able to attend tomorrow night.  Also, the group could continue into the start of next session – further details will be provided in due course.


Active Schools Parents Survey

Active Schools is responsible for running a number of activity clubs offered to your child in the local area. We would like your views on a variety of activities that your child could participate in, so that we can focus on activities that parents would like their child participating in.

The survey should take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.

  • Responses to this survey can remain anonymous.
  • Results of this survey will be published on the school website as well as the Active East Lothian website.

Extra In-service day – 20th August 2014

East Lothian schools are being given a 6th In-service day on Wednesday 20th August 2014. This means ALL children in P1-7 will start school on Thursday 21st August. P2-7 will start at 8.45am as usual. Our new P1s will start at 9.30am and their timetable will run as planned already, apart from not being in on the Wednesday. We apologise for any inconvenience. The extra In-service day is to give teachers more time to develop the Curriculum for Excellence.
