A warm welcome back…

Here’s a quick snapshot of our pupils returning after the summer holidays. It was great to see familiar faces and to welcome our brand new pupils. It didn’t take long for everyone to settle in, make some new friends and find their way around. It’s lovely to see the school grow and to see our pupils so happy. We hope you enjoy our short movie…

Have a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year

Crikey! it has been some year. All of us have been called upon to make sacrifices and live our lives in a very different and unprecedented way. What has been remarkable though, is the camaraderie and spirt shown by our pupils and our parents. It has been heartening to see at first hand such a can do attitude despite our pupils missing out on some of the regular experiences of a school in normal times. We felt this especially for our new P1s but our staff have been amazing about ensuring that every child feels valued and cared for and we have done our best to compensate for some of those restrictions. But boy are we going to have a good year next year! We are looking forward to starting in our new building and when things return to some sort of normality, ensuring that our parents are welcomed and encouraged to participate within our school life as much as possible.

This is just a thank you to Team Letham; to our staff who have worked tirelessly, to our pupils who amaze and delight us every day and to our parents for making our jobs so easy. We couldn’t do our staff panto this year, we couldn’t do our nativity (next year’s will be big and bold for those who missed out!) but here is a little light relief from our multi-talented staff. Have a lovely Christmas!

Haddington Goat Trail -new kids on the block…

We were delighted to take part in the Haddington Goat trail this year. Run by MADE in East Lothian this project allowed 12 applicants to create a goat and it placed in a local shop in the run up to Christmas. Our entry ‘Vincent van Goat’ (sorry!) was an amalgamation of the pupils’ ideas. Check out our video to see how Vinnie was made and where he can currently be found.
