Measles

We’ve been asked to communicate this important message about measles.

There are outbreaks of measles in the UK, Europe and the USA. Measles is very infectious but can be prevented with MMR vaccine. MMR protects against mumps and rubella too.

NHS Lothian is inviting S1-S6 pupils who have not been vaccinated to clinics this summer term and in the holidays. Look out in the post for your clinic invitation.

Make sure to get vaccinated! Together we can stop the spread of measles! #VaccinesWork #NHS_Lothian

Basecamp

Please find below information about a local group called Basecamp. The group is aimed at children between the age of 5 and 10 with a diagnosis of autism or with similar support needs. The group uses games, crafts and activities to promote social skills such as getting to know you, turn taking, listening, team working and managing emotions.

This club has been running successfully in Haddington for a few years now.

WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK MONDAY 13th May

Better weather, bright mornings and walking to school is here again! School bus people , you are already being eco friendly by all coming to school safely on ONE bus! Well done. For everyone else living in Musselburgh-make a big effort and Walk to School. It’s better for the environment and for our own kids establishing healthy life habits. This reduces traffic around the school. We know children are very concerned about the climate and damage to our planet.

If it’s just too far-please consider walking some of the way! Each class will have a chart and stickers to recognise the effort.

For parents -take a look at this website for ideas and information for you as a family.
