We were delighted welcome two special guests to assembly today – Heather Campbell from East Linton Library and East Lothian’s Provost Councillor John McMillan.
Heather congratulated those pupils who completed the Summer Reading Challenge and Provost McMillan brought us a very special certificate from the Lord Lyon to thank us for contributing to the competition to design a flag for East Lothian.
We also celebrated all of the winners from the East Linton Flower Show – what a lot of talented people we have in our school!!
Today Allison and Ann from Dunpender Community Council consulted with P7 around what was good about living in East Linton and what we could improve upon.
