School Fair News

The sun shone and the crowds came and a fantastic school fair was had by all.
We would like to say a very BIG thank you to all the teachers involved both in preparing in class for the big day and those who were able to come along and help on Saturday. The year group stalls were a great addition. Special thanks to Miss Eeles and Mrs Brennan for coordinating the staff  and pupil’s stalls.
We would especially like to thank all the Parent Council members and other parent helpers who gave up their own time to help set up on Friday and Saturday.
A very special thanks to the parents, children and community of Dunbar for turning up on such a glorious day to support our school.  You helped raise over £3,500 for your children. Well done to you everyone.

Walk to School Week


Many thanks to all the parents and children for making an extra special effort to walk/cycle/scoot to school this week.  We are very proud to be a school where very few of our children even consider getting the car to and from school. Keep it up.


We also are rewarded for promoting healthy ways to school. Today sees the arrival of the bicycle storage Pod at Lochend Campus. This was our prize for all your wonderful efforts during “The Big Pedal”.
