Bass Rock Swimmers

On the 16th of August, 2015, 15 parents from Law Primary swam from the Bass Rock back to North Berwick, to raise money for Project Play. They started training in the January of that year and were helped by the RNLI, and local people who gave their time in training, as medics on the day, as support from boats and kayaks and many more supported and encouraged along the way. The team raised over £8000 for Project Play, with £800 given to the RNLI.

The children have been consulted and based on their feedback, we have begun making some improvements, for example, 4 new picnic tables, 2 new A-frames and some new planters for the gardening team to use.  Negotiations are on-going!

Ann Reilly, one of the swimmers, made this amazing wee film to share our experience with others. We hope you have fun watching it!

What You Say Counts

This campaign has been launched by East Lothian Council to support the work we are doing to promote positive attitudes towards mathematics and numeracy.  It provides tips and advice for you to support your child’s learning at home through everyday activities.

Volunteering in School

At Law Primary School we greatly value the help we receive from parents/carers both on school visits and helping class teachers in school with a variety of tasks.  As well as parents, perhaps there are also aunties, grannies or grand dads who could help on a regular basis, even if for only an hour a week.

The following is an idea of some of the varied tasks undertaken by helpers in school: Mounting pictures, organising/labelling resources, helping with crafts, cataloguing books, assisting children on the computer, overseeing practical maths, photocopying, putting up displays.

In addition, helping children with their reading, either in a small group or individually is very rewarding for both the child and adult.

Below is a timetable of where we are looking for help. If you are able to help with any of these sessions, please contact Miss MacAulay at the school.

We look forward to hearing from you.
