Haddington Primary School – Tuesday 20th December 2022

End of Term/Christmas Holiday

I take this opportunity to thank everyone in our school community for their continued help, support and efforts.

It has been a very special time where parents, carers and families have been able to attend events in school for the first time in three years.

Our Nursery children entertained adults at their Christmas singalong.

Our Infant Campus children provided the Christmas spirit with the traditional P.1 Nativity and P.2, and P.3 Christmas song and poetry presentations.

Traditionally, the Upper Campus children have provided a Christmas Fair. We changed the format this year where year groups presented different Christmas experiences to their parents/carers. P.7 presented a Mexican Christmas including Mexican snacks and class made guacamole. P.6 children danced a ceilidh with the adults. P.5 led Christmas art activities and P.4 served teas, coffees and cakes.

The combined attendance by adults at these events was quite overwhelming. I cannot thank you enough for supporting the school and, most importantly, the children.

Some significant dates for your forward planning next term:

I wish everyone in our school community a very Happy Christmas. I hope that everyone enjoys a restful and happy time over the festive period, and please accept my best wishes for a happy and healthy 2023.

I look forward to welcoming our school community back for the New Year on Wednesday 4th January 2023.

Best wishes, Willie
