Our Community

Published by

We are lucky to be part of a community that supports our nursery and school in many ways.

Humbie Box Office kindly donate the profits from children’s films towards the PTA funds. http://www.humbieboxoffice.co.uk – please help us support HBO.

Humbie Kirk Minister Aniko Shuetz Bradwell, visits our school every month to take an assembly with the children. In the past Humbie Kirk have donated large amounts to the school.

Humbie Orchard Project was created by and for the people of Humbie and the surrounding areas. They have created a space that is both fruitful and functional. The community volunteered to clear the area and plant fruit trees and bushes. There was a ‘Juicing Day’ where the children learned to chop, pulp and juice the harvest. This gave our school the opportunity to follow the progress of the fruit from seed to harvest.

The Orchard is working in partnership with local sculptor Michael McManus. The school children picked two of his designs and the chosen wood sculptures will eventually sit in the orchard.

This space will also provide an Outdoor Learning space for our school to use. Check out their Facebook page on https://en-gb.facebook.com/humbieorchard/

Humbie Parents and Toddlers meet in Humbie Hall every Wednesday 9.30-11.30am including school holidays. They welcome children from babies to pre-school age with many of them going on to attend our school. The cost includes a healthy snack for children and a hot drink for grown ups. For more information please contact Jennifer Edward through Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Humbie-Parent-and-Toddlers-453964074712139/ or follow them on Twitter https://twitter.com/Humbie_toddler

Windymains Sawmill have supported us for many years particularly with their donation to our Burns Night Suppers.

Humbie Village Hall  is used by our school for PE and school events such as our Community Cafes and Burns Night Suppers.
