Scottish Love in Action Fundraising event

Primary 1 and Primary 1/2 did an excellent job of setting up and selling a selection of homemade Christmas crafts to families and friends to raise funds for Scottish Love in Action.

P1 and P1/2 Fundraising Fair on PhotoPeach

A huge thank you to everyone who attended and bought the pupils’ products and to staff who gave their time and contributed to the success of the event.


Lots of fun at P4 camp

Fun and learning with Activotes

Watch the video clip of an Environmental Studies lesson where the pupils submit their answers using the new hand held voting devices called Activotes. 

The lesson was filmed using the new Flip video camera. With Guitar Hero in full swing in P7 we are becoming the hottest (and coolest!) school for technology!!


Want to learn to play the bagpipes??

At last Friday’s assembly, Richard Fairnie showed up in full Highland dress and entertained us with his bagpipe playing.  He told us that he would like East Linton to have it’s own Pipe Band and that they are keen to recruit young people to start learning how to play the bagpipes, starting first with the chanter.

Children who are keen to learn should come along to the Community Hall on a Monday night from 6 to 7pm.  They must be at least 7 years old and be acccompanied by a parent/carer.  Good luck to anyone who gives it a go!

The Big Read




All classes took part in The Big Read yesterday – pupils and teachers enjoyed some quiet reading time as part of the national Send my friend to school 2009 campaign which highlights the fact that 40 million school age children round the world don’t have the opportunity to get an education. Pupils at East Linton learnt about this issue and wrote to Gordon Brown to pledge their support for change.
