We had a fantastic presentation by Gregor’s Mum at our weekly whole school assembly, explaining how the Village Gala Committee desperately needs more helpers for this year’s Gala to go ahead. As part of her powerpoint display, she showed us some wonderful photographs of Galas in the past and the children loved pointing out pictures of their family, neighbours, friends and even themselves! Please make sure we have a Gala this year and respond to the Committee’s plea for help! Look out for this leaflet sent home on Friday.
All of the children in every class from Nursery to P7, turned their frosty fingers into green fingers today in a whole school tidy up for Winter. From picking up litter and weeds, to planting bulbs for Spring, everyone worked as a team to maintain our wonderful school grounds. Appreciation to all of the parents who wrapped up too and came to lend a hand. They also turned their frosty fingers into green fingers! Thank you!

We are always very eager to encourage our children to be confident individuals and this has been very much proved this year already, by pupil committee representatives presenting information to parents, other committees and members of the public, both at meetings in School AND in the Community…… AND out of school hours!
Our Fairtrade reps addressed a packed hall at a Co-op Members Evening, held in the Village, by showing them an excellent powerpoint presentation they had specially created, to tell everybody what we have done so far here, at East Linton Primary School, to raise awareness about Fairtrade. They were given a great reception by business managers, invited guests and other members of the community.
Our Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) most professionally addressed The Parent Council on Tuesday night. With the ongoing help of Zoe McCarthy (thank you, Zoe!), the boys have been continuing to plan activities to encourage Road Safety etc. throughout the School and requested financial help to promote this (and, as usual, The Parent Council was very generous……. thank you!)
Well done and congratulations boys! You were a credit to the School!
