House Captain Elections

As part of their Scottish Parliament topic, P7 held an election to select new house captains for 2018/19. Through this we explored what democracy is and how important it is to have a vote, campaigning and persuasive speech writing.

The candidates worked extremely hard and were supported well by their campaign managers.  On the election day, the candidates confidently presented their speeches and everyone in P7 supported the rest of the school in the voting process.

 Here are some pictures from the day…

 

Congratulations to our new House and Vice Captains, I am sure they will do a fabulous job. Well done to everyone for taking part!

Meet our road safety helpers

We’re helping East Lothian Council roads staff to trial a new approach to keeping us safe around the school.

These colourful characters are taking our road safety messages right to the side of the roads around our school, where drivers can’t miss them. And they seem to be doing a good job – it’s now planned to extend the idea to other schools.
