Wishing you all a very happy Christmas from everyone here in Loretto.
Thank you so much for all your kindness to myself and all staff.

School finishes tomorrow and starts again for pupils on Wednesday 8th January.
Today, P7 had a very engaging and informative day! They were visited by many different adults who spoke about their jobs. During this “Careers’ Day”, the children learnt lots about the importance of working hard in order to realise their ambitions after they leave school. They learnt about different pathways of training and qualifications.
There were many different jobs that we learnt about including, architecture, coastguard, data analyst, Scientist, police officer, paramedic and civil engineering. The children took notes on all of these and asked some really insightful questions. Thank you to all of the people who took part. The children will be writing some letters of thanks and these will be with you soon.
Our Twitter has some super photos and more information.
We are sharing our learning and reporting to parents Tuesday 8th October and Thursday 10th October. Parents are invited into classes 9.15am till 10.20am. You will be able to see the children working on their numeracy and explaining it to you. Teas and coffees are being served in the dining hall from the morning bell-to let us register the children. Please stay and see how well your child is progressing in numeracy. Don’t worry if you did not send back the slip-just come along. We love having you.
As you know, today we had a problem with our heating in parts of the building and the children were accommodated in the school gym hall or with our friends and neighbours at the Burgh Primary School.
Engineers have visited and specialist cleaning and testing has taken place. The problem is resolved and we have been assured there is not, nor was, any risk to staff or pupils. We are grateful to our colleagues across East Lothian for the swift support to ensure our comfort and safety and to our school staff for ensuring the children have also had a day of learning.
School and nursery will be OPEN as normal tomorrow Thursday 19th September.
Many thanks for your patience and support.
Well done boys and girls!

Well done to all of the children who have been working hard in P7T! I can’t believe that it is already the September holiday!
We started off by learning about the Bermuda Triangle, our pupil choice topic. This was very engaging for all of the children who used their detective skills to find out and to propose some theories. Some children were quite active in their imaginations. It was wonderful to read the stories that all of the children wrote.
We have now moved on to investigating myths. We are learning about the different civilisations that created these myths. In the next few weeks, we will be writing our own myth and sharing this learning with other.
We have had some school trips including one to the Book Festival and one to the lagoons. We enjoyed these immensely and look forward to more trips.
All of the children have their google accounts and have an invite to google classroom. I look forward to seeing some posts on the site!
We are excited to see all the boys and girls back to school on
Wednesday 14th August. All school classes begin at 8.50am.
