Fantastic legacy for the school

I am delighted to announce that the school has received a very generous donation towards the provision of the new Heinemann Active Maths resource.  This has been gifted by a family in the school in memory of their mother who was a mathematician.  Money has also been given by the Parent Council and we have ordered the resource for Early and First levels of Curriculum for Excellence which will complement Second level which we already have.  This will be in place for the beginning of the new session and all the children in the school will benefit.

Thank you!

Get Going!

Celebration Open Day Tuesday 3rd July Mussselburgh Sports Centre 2-4pm Do you want to know more about Get Going? This family healthy lifestyle programme aims to encourage children to get active, eat well and work towards a healthy weight. This is a fantastic opportunity for families, particularly those with any concerns about healthy weight, to come and learn more about the programme and ask questions in a very relaxed atmosphere. During a fun packed couple of hours you will get to take part in lots of fun activities as a family and individually, look round the market place, make smoothies, enjoy fruit tasting and leave with lots of goodies from water bottles to a 5 a day fruit bag. Come as a family and enjoy the start of the summer holidays with a healthy kick. Places need to be booked in advance and tickets will be sent out prior to the day. To book your place, please contact:- Caroline Kaye Tel: 01620 828 760 / 07530 311 852 Email: ckaye@eastlothian.gov.uk by Friday June 29th Remember to wear comfortable clothing and suitable footwear for taking part in physical activity.

Face Britain

Today is the launch of the projection onto Buckingham Palace.

Projection and Nationwide Digital Display

Every child’s self portrait will be used in a very special montage portrait of HM The Queen to be projected onto Buckingham Palace between 8.30pm – 11.15pm from 19th – 21st April. We are inviting everyone who has taken part in Face Britain to come and see the projection, which will be a spectacular sight, and are particularly keen for people to come to the switch on night on Thursday 19th April.

We realise that for the vast majority of those that have taken part in Face Britain it will not be possible to visit the projection in person. We are therefore delighted that the montage portrait of HM The Queen will also be simultaneously showcased on the national network of BBC Big Screens in town centres and via the network of JCDecaux digital advertising screens in train stations across the UK..
