Welcome back

Mrs Gilmour and Theresa are delighted to welcome back all the familiar faces from last year. We think they are all glad to be back! We have also been welcoming our new children, who have settled in very quickly and are learning all about Nursery life. Everyone has been very busy.
Dottie and Goldie the Nursery goldfish, have also returned from their holidays. They went to sunny Tyninghame for 7 weeks, they came back ready to meet our new children and are glad to be back in Nursery.

Happy Holidays From The Parent Council

The Parent Council hopes everyone has a great summer – relax and enjoy the break whatever the weather!

If you’re having a clear out during the holidays join us at the Table Top Sale in the Community Hall on Saturday 9th August – we have booked two tables for this event and hope to raise some funds for school. We are also planning to produce a School Calendar next term and need someone to help us produce the artwork for this project – contact Kay on 860074 if you’re able to help us out.

See you in August!

P3 on the seashore.

As part of our Seashore studies, we visited Yellowcraigs and the Scottish Seabird Centre. The Ranger took us out to the rockpools where we found lots of interesting creatures. Afterwards we had a picnic lunch at North Berwick and went to the Seabird Centre. We watched puffins and other birds on the cameras and also made craft rockpools in the Education Centre.Many thanks to all our adult helpers. We had a great time! > [rockyou 115753845]

P4 Enterprise

The children in P4 have been very busy over the past weeks preparing for ‘ A Musical Sing Song’. They enthusiastically performed on 11th June, to a tremendous turn out of Senior Citizens from the local community and again to their proud parents on 13th June. The children and Miss Wallace are indebted to Joyce Murray (better known as Granny Joyce to pupils) for her immeasurable help, inspirational guidance and outstanding piano playing.Thanks also to the Parent Council who kindly agreed to serve refreshments whilst the pupils chatted eagerly to their audience. >[rockyou 115071416]

P1 Assembly

We have been finding out about minibeasts and decided to show other classes what we have learned. We produced and performed our own show where we had a dancing caterpillar and sang lots of songs. >[rockyou114829627]

Thank you to everyone for supporting the May Fair – we raised around £900 but we are already planning fundraising events for next session so if you have any suggestions or would like to help us out, please let us know. We still have a small unclaimed raffle prize – if anyone knows ‘ S Berry ’ please contact the school office.

East Lothian Council are running a Target Literacy Conference on 12 June in the Brunton Hall, Musselburgh and are looking for parental representatives – if any parents/carers are interested in attending, please contact me and I will forward the relevant information.

The East Lothian Association of Parent Councils will be meeting up on 5th June so it will be interesting to hear ideas and opinions from other Parent Councils.

Please think about joining our 50/50 Club – a monthly prize draw costing only £2 per month and an easy way to raise funds for school. Money raised each month is split between winners and school fundraising so more members means more prize money and more funds for school. Forms are available from the school office.
