Bobble Hat Heroes

Our Charity Committee consists of pupils from P5-7 and they have been hard at work seeking out 5 charities for which our school community will raise funds this session. More details on that to follow. 

Bobble Hat Heroes

One of the charities chosen by the pupils was the NSPCC.  On Friday 4th December, we will be donning our bobble hats in support of their funds for Childline.

There will be a competition in each class with prizes for the silliest one and the best homemade one so let’s get creating!

We’d love the grownups to get involved too.

  • You could ask someone to knit you your own unique design
  • Convince whoever takes you to school to wear their own bobble or winter hat too
  • Take a ‘groupie’ of you all wearing your hats before you leave the house in the morning or even in the playground (please ensure no child or children other than your own are in the photographs without explicit permission from their parent or guardian)
  • Send your ‘groupies’ to the NSPCC Facebook page with the hashtag #bobblehatheroes
  • Send them to our Twitter page @lawps with the #bobblehatheroes hashtag
  • Get your photograph taken with a local hero and tell us why you chose them.
  • Get the community involved by speaking to friends and family about it.

And most importantly of all…

  • Donate £1 to the cause by bringing it to school on the morning of Friday 4th December and HAVE FUN!

It’s as easy as that! We can’t wait to see North Berwick getting involved.

Kakatsitsi Master Drummers from Ghana


What wonderful sounds were heard in school today! The Primary 2, 3 and 4 classes were all treated to a fantastic performance by the Kakatsitsi Master Drummers from Ghana in the Gym Hall then the P3s and 4s were each given a workshop.  This included drumming, singing and dancing.  Please watch the YouTube clip for a taste of what the children did today. (It is NOT a clip filmed in school today…photos to follow)

School Closure


Due to adverse weather conditions, all East Lothian schools will remain closed to pupils on Thursday 7th Jan. Staff will report to school if possible. Please keep checking local radio and their websites for updates. A further announcement should be made regarding Friday’s opening later in the day on Thursday.

Check East Lothian Council’s website for further updates.

May we take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year!

We hope to see you all soon!


Law Primary PTA

As well as the Formative Assessment display boards in the small dining room, the PTA will also be asking a few quick questions about the future of the PTA. Please take a few moments to consider this on Parents’ Evenings this week.

Because of the very low turn out at the AGM on Monday 1st October(only 2 parents attended), it now seems that the long standing PTA will fold. With your help, we can prevent this from happening!

The main function of the PTA as opposed to the School Board and the new School Council has been to

  • Fundraise in a variety of forms
  • Enhance the school community by organising supporting events

The school has hugely benefited in the past from resources such as library books, playground equipment and furniture (still more to come!), visiting theatre groups and Health Week event.

No PTA means no bid for grants which fund health and sport etc.

Can you please consider;

  • Do you think there should be a PTA in Law Primary?
  • If yes, are you prepared to become active in the PTA?

There will be the chance to answer these questions every night during the parents’ evenings so please feel free to ask the PTA members on duty if you have any queries about what being an active member involves.

Can we just take this opportunity to thank the former members of the PTA for their tireless efforts for the last few years. Due to the low numbers in the PTA they took a lot of the activities and fundraising on themselves and did a fantastic job. We hope that this can continue with new members. The more members who are active, the less work each person has to do!!

We look forward to speaking to you this week.
