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.
A reminder to all parents/carers that we have our Meet the Teacher Evening this Wednesday 21st August from 6-7 pm.
There will be a short welcome from Mrs McGillivray at 6 pm then you can visit your child’s teacher in their classroom after this or at 6.30 pm.
👕👖👞 The PCC will be running a second hand uniform stall at this. If you have any old uniform or children’s shoes you no longer need, please hand them in to school before Wednesday.
Please only donate items that are clean and in decent condition! 👕👖👞
We look forward to seeing you then.

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.
Every class in the school recently had some important lessons from Save a Life Scotland. They taught each child how to do CPR and other age-appropriate skills.
The children all enjoyed it and did very well.
You can see read what P2/3 wrote about it on their Class Blog here and see some school photos on St John Scotland’s Facebook Page.
I have uploaded the holidays to the School’s Google Calendar and will add other dates and events when they are decided.

P4 ran their socks off today to raise money for the Rainforest Foundation UK. They ran for 30 minutes while their fabulous P6 mascots collected in all the donations. They raised more than £200 and put in so much hard work and effort to do so.
Thanks you all so much to those who supported us today. This means a lot to us and is very much appreciated.
P4, I am very very proud of you! Well Done!
A while ago there was a running competition called The Cross Country. It was held at Meadowmill and there were a lot of other schools there.
Daniel, Charlie, Tom, Scott, Fraser, took part in the big school boys race. Tom won the category of boys from a larger school.
We all enjoyed taking part.
On the 20th of March was the Euroquiz and Gullane competed. Us, Christian and Jude were the competitors for the team. We all had to do lots and lots of practising at school and home.
We went to Preston Lodge High school for the East Lothian Heat. The quizmaster was Mrs Tremmel, our headteacher. The other schools were Dunbar, Loretto, Pinkie, Musselburgh, Saltoun, Macmerry, Prestonpans and Gullane. The 1st round was geography. The 2nd round was language. The 3rd round was basically politics. After the 3rd round there was a break and we got sweets. We were tied with Loretto at that point! The 4th round was general knowledge. After the 4th round we were ahead of Loretto by one point but we had to go into a final with them .By the 5th round only the top 2 teams remained, us and Loretto!!!! We drew the 5th round. Then we drew the tiebreaker. It was super tense. Then it went to sudden death. Then Loretto got an answer wrong so we won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That means we get to go to the Scottish Parliament’s Debating Chamber for the final.
We went to the Scottish Parliament to go to the Euroquiz final. There were three rounds, Geography, Language and understanding europe. It was a lot of fun and some of the questions were quite hard. We came 3rd out of the 31 schools (470 overall) who made it to the final we got bronze medals and pencil cases and we also got our goody bag. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
The winners were St Mary Duntocher and Strathblane were 2nd.
We enjoyed taking part and the main things we enjoyed were being away from school for something different and coming 3rd.
Saturday’s getting closer and the weather forecast’s looking great for the summer fair. We will have burgers and Pimm’s and baking and bouncy castles and games and face painting and all sorts of fun for all the family.
However, we are still a bit short of volunteers. If you could offer an hour and a half (11-12.30 or 12.30-2) to help on one of our stalls, we would be very grateful (especially if you’re a face painter!!). Get in touch by DM on Facebook or at email@example.com.
