Fire Safety in our Nursery Class

Our Nursery Class recently enjoyed a visit from David Norris, Community Firefighter for Lothian & Borders Fire Service.

David spoke to the children about fire safety and then let them all try on his fireman’s uniform.  

A fun packed morning was had by all!

Fun with Gladys Chucklebutty!

All of the children from our Nursery Class up to the P7 pupils at Innerwick Primary School were very much looking forward to the visit from Gladys Chucklebutty who was coming to school to entertain them all at the end of the Christmas Term!

Gladys visited the school on Tuesday 9th December and promised Magic * Comedy * Ventriloquism * Puppets * Games * Prizes * And Lots Of FUN FUN FUN ! * ….and she certainly delivered all of these! 

Her show was chaotic, crazy, interactive and fun packed…. all of which was perfect for the children… and the staff who were there!!

Yellow Woods Challenge

Innerwick Primary School is one of the schools within the East Lothian area who are taking part in the Yellow Woods Challenge.


This is an environmental competition run by Yellow Pages, working with the Woodland Trust and our local council.


The aim is to recycle the highest number of old Yellow Pages directories per pupil and win cash prizes for our school. And for every pound Yellow Pages awards to schools, they give a matching pound to the Woodland Trust.


When your new Yellow Pages directory is delivered, please help our school and the environment by recycling your old one. You can recycle the old Yellow Pages by placing it into your kerbside box, but before doing so, please take off the cover of the old one and bring it into school! 
If you do not have a kerbside recycling box, please just bring the whole of your Yellow Pages into school and we will place it into our recycling bags for collection.  
Please ask your family, friends, and community groups to help our school by donating their old directories, too.  

Thank you for your co-operation.



School Garden

The school recently received a donation for taking part in an Engineering Challenge and it was agreed that some of this would be used to purchase some small trees and shrubs for planting in the vast school garden.

One tree was purchased for each child and they all spent a cold, wintry Friday morning having fun digging holes in the muddy garden and planting their plants!

The garden is starting to look fantastic now and we are all looking forward to the trees and shrubs blossoming and flowering in the months and years to come.
