Family Homework Task

A huge thank you to everyone for their fabulous efforts with our family homework task . . .

Box Meeting
We held a whole school assembly on Friday 31st August and we were delighted to be joined by our special visitors, Archie Johnston and Olive Richardson.

The display of learning by pupils at our assembly on Friday was outstanding. There was such a rich variety of learning including singing, dancing, drama and public speaking.

Thank you to our parents and carers for supporting the school and community with celebrating this important local event.

East Lothian Foodbank
On behalf of East Lothian Foodbank, a massive thank you for the generous donations which were greatly received; we were overwhelmed once again by the amount of donations. This was very much appreciated.
