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.

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.
Thanks to all the parents, staff and children who supported our Bake Sale in aid of the Intensive Care Unit and High Dependency Unit in the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh.
The House Captains and some of the Pupil Council did a FANTASTIC job organising and running this and some of them braved the cold to sell cakes outside at the entrance to the school.
We will let you know what it raised in due course.
P5 have been very busy with their John Muir Award the last few months. They have blogged about it on their own Class Blog.
Have a look at what they have written about under the different categories here:
Primary 4 have been learning how to ‘Blog’ today. They were able to login to P4 Blog and create a post with their partner giving their ‘Top 5 excuses on why they didn’t have their homework’
Very imaginative they are too!
