Crazy Creation Day

We are looking forward to taking part in this day that P5 are organising tomorrow. Details are in the newsletter and the children have had a whole school presentation about it and questions answered in their classes.

If they are STILL unsure what to wear they can read the post written by the P5 here.


P5 are holding an event called Crazy Creations day.  This event will be held on the Thursday 14th of December.  We are fundraising for 2 charities this year.  We chose Cancer Research and Save the Children.  We are going to split the money between the 2 charities.Donations would be £1 or if you are feeling generous you can donate more.

The rules would be: clothes and hats but no accessories (antlers etc) or jewellery. (We will accept small earrings). Crazy hair is acceptable but no hair dye or sprays to change the colour.

You can still come in your school uniform or wear a Christmas Jumper if you wish.

We are also holding a parade at assembly on 14th of December to show off your creations.   The teachers (if they want) will be dressing up as well……… this event will be so much fun!

P.S Please do not go and buy a costume just put something really really odd together, the crazier the better and no competition is involved.



Sporting Successes

We sent two teams consisting of P6 and P7 pupils to the recent ELPSSA hockey tournament at Meadowmill, where a great day was had by all. One of our teams made it to the final, where a defeat to Kings Meadow Primary resulted in second place, but a qualification to the Regional Finals at Peffermill in the summer term.

Our other team came in third place on the day, and qualifies for the SHU National Hockey Day to be held in Glasgow in June. What a superb achievement for both our teams.

The team members were: Freya L, Imogen C, Morven C, Amy C, Iona S, Megan F, Ellis M, Anna D, Isla M, Emily C, Freya E, Lily W, and Olivia T.

A team of our P7 girls recently took part in the annual football tournament, an event that we have not had much success in in previous years, being up against very strong opposition from other schools. This year the opposition was of an equally high standard but our girls rose to the challenge, beating every team they played and bringing the trophy back to Gullane. Fantastic job, ladies!

The team members were: Lucy T, Anna D, Ellis M, Megan F, Iona S, Morven C, Ella D and Freya L.

In October, a team of P7 girls and a team of P7 boys took part in the East Lothian Rugby Tournament, with the girls in a pool of 18 teams and the boys in one of 20 teams. The standard of rugby was superb and the opposition was strong, but both our teams reached the semi-finals. The girls lost to Kings Meadow at this stage, but the boys had a good win against Kings Meadow to reach the finals. Up against Yester Primary for the last match of the tournament, the boys performed fantastically well, with a good win to secure the trophy for Gullane, an achievement that we have not seen for the last fifteen years. Huge congratulations to both teams for such impressive results.

The team members were: Lucy T, Anna D, Ellis M, Megan F, Iona S, Amy C, Imogen C, Morven C, Calum M, Scott M-N, Tom M, Alex S, Alfie A, Duncan L, Ben S and Seamus T.
