Happy Holidays

Dear all

It has been an end of term never to be forgotten and yet at the same time did not feel like the end of term at all.

We missed having our celebrations in person with the children and families but hope that our virtual events went some way to connecting with you all and marking the end of term.

Virtual sports day was a huge success and our Google classrooms and Google meets allowed the children to round off this year. We are becoming quite the quiz masters. School videos have let you see glimpses of the school as we have prepared and planned for August-though we are waiting for final confirmation later in the summer as to what this will be. Don’t worry we are prepared for different scenarios and will do our absolute best for your children within the guidance to be followed.

It was lovely to see so many children, especially our P7s on their last Google meets. We were delighted to deliver P7 packs to you including your ‘graduation’ certificate, Pope Francis Awards and yearbooks. We look forward to welcoming you back for a celebration when the time is safe and right.

School session dates have been published and are available on East Lothian Council website here https://www.eastlothian.gov.uk/info/210557/schools_and_learning/12007/school_term_dates/3

Please also check latest information on our Twitter page about free school meals over summer  and the link to East Lothian Council nursery updates.

If there are any other important updates we will be in touch-so keep an eye out for school e mails. But for now rest and relax a bit over the summer.

May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience and support and the great job you did during lockdown.

To the wonderful staff team here in Loretto-thank you for your dedicated commitment to our school and the preparation for next session-however that will be. I know how hard you have worked  behind the scenes and how much you are missing the children.

I hope that the weather is kind to us over the summer break. Stay safe and well-keep following the advice-and see you soon.

Mrs McBean
