The nasal spray flu vaccination session due in Gullane Primary School this week has been rescheduled to the 20th of December.
I apologise for this change in date. This is due to UK wide temporary delays in some flu vaccine supplies due in November.
Parents of children with a significant health condition which puts them at risk of flu (for instance chronic heart, lung, kidney disease or diabetes), and who wish their child to have their flu vaccination before December 20th are recommended to contact their own general practice for an earlier vaccination.
Further information is available at NHS Inform and in the leaflet here.

The P3s from P3 and P3/4 recently got together when the SSPCA visited the school. They looked at how to care for rabbits and used the robot rabbits and other resources to learn.
The photos below show them interacting with the pets.
P3/4 would love if their family could join them at their Class Assembly on Thursday 21st November at 9 am. After this you are invited to visit their Museum which will be open in the P3/4 Classroom to break.
Come and see what they have learned about the Egyptians.

Some of the classes had great fun with a taster from the local table tennis today. Junior Sessions run from 6-6.45 pm on Wednesdays in the Village Hall. The next one is on Wednesday 2nd of October and you can find more information here.
Here are some photos of P3 having their taster.
P3 and P3/4 recently had an exciting time when Shonagh Davidson our Drama Specialist came to visit.
The theme was ‘I Wish I Was A Mountain’ and the children explored a story about what happened when people did not look after the area they lived in.
The children enjoyed the mime and other drama experiences together and you can see the fun they had in the Slideshow below.

Parents of P1-3 children are reminded that if your child requires a packed lunch on a Friday, they should ensure the meal selection is completed by the Sunday evening prior to the Friday on which the packed lunch is required.
As mentioned in the letter last week, this can be completed up to 6 weeks in advance here.
As the meals are prepared before the children arrive at school on the Friday, they must be ordered in advance and cannot be ordered on the day.
Thanks for your help with this matter.
P2/3 have been busy this week writing posts for their new Class Blog to show their parents at the drop in this morning.
You can read their posts on the blog here.
Thanks very much for all the parents and grandparents who came to our drop in this morning. We really appreciated you joining us and hope you enjoyed it.
