The Cross Country Running Competition – by Daniel L

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.

Charades Theatre – The Mould that Changed the World

P5, 6&7 are working with the above company on a world premiere of a musical which highlights the work of Alexander Fleming.

There is no cost for the families as such and the company is working on raising the funds to pay for the hire of the museum for the evening performance. The charge is high but we can’t find a way round it so they came up with this possible solution. As a result, Robin Hiley (head of the company) has made a short video using our classes to place a campaign on a crowd funding website.

I would like to underline that we are not expecting our families to donate to this but you may know people who would feel they could.

One of our school ‘friends’, Mr Roy McGregor, has already gifted us the funds for one of our coaches which is so generous. Edinburgh Art College has made the costumes for the event so they should look fantastic.

Please return your slips so that we can get the additional tickets out to families. There is no need to reply as we are dealing with this side- the slip is basically your reply and you get the ticket to ‘book’ your place.

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.
