Wow! Pat on the back, everyone! The P6 managed to raise a whopping £261.10 for their Macmillan Coffee Morning. Thank you so much to everyone who brought in home baking, and to those who came along and bought it!
On Friday 4th October we held our first ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ day, where pupils could wear something red and donate to this worthy cause. We raised £96! Not bad for a first attempt! Thank you all for your generosity.
Multi-Sports club that will run from 4:30 till 6 pm on a Friday afternoon at the Musselburgh East Community Centre.
Here at Loretto PS, we’re supporting this cause. This Friday, wear something red, donate £1 and show that we care. Log in to SchoolPay and no need to scrabble around for that £1 coin!
Come along to our welcome meeting on Monday 9th September, at 7pm. This is a great opportunity to meet other parents, meet your child’s teacher, and have a look at what they’ve been working on. Hope to see you there!
We are an East Lothian based, not for profit organisation that delivers adventurous outdoor activities, in the School Holidays, for children aged 8 to 14. We run these activity programmes in partnership with East Lothian Council’s Outdoor Learning Service.
Activities range from things such as kayaking, canoeing and rock climbing to coasteering, trail cycling and bushcraft. These activities offer the opportunity for children to build confidence, self esteem and resilience. These days also offer a great social setting for young people and a chance to interact with peers in different settings.
We also run an ASN Adventurous Activities provision for children with additional support needs, and their families – this is funded by ELC and enables access to our activities for children who struggle to access mainstream activities. These free sessions run fortnightly at the weekend. More information on this can be found at www.venturingout.org.uk/asn-provision
Some of our pupils were interviewed by the BBC after the Book Festival recently.

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
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.
