End of term news

What a term it has been with workmen all over the place!   Our lovely new Dining-room is being well used. The work to replace the windows and clad the walls in the “Tower Block” continues. Staff have worked hard to minimise the effect of the necessary moves on pupils’ work. Pupils have enjoyed the changes. Parents too, have been affected, as they tip-toe through the playground that often seems to resemble a building site.
Today the architect told us that we should be able to move our classes back in to their “normal” classrooms as soon as we come back after the holidays. Here’s hoping there are no snags to prevent any delay. Currently, two classes are using rooms where the new windows have been put in, and are feeling how warm the rooms are. The awful snow, sleet, wind etc of the last couple of days has been a very good test of the difference the school will feel next winter.
We enjoyed having a Puffin with us for a few days. We eventually pulled the name out of a hat, and Annalise was the lucky winner. She gets a free ticket to the Seabird Centre as well as the cuddly toy.
Due to the foul weather, the PTA decided yesterday to postpone their Easter Disco until 21st April – 6.30 – 8.30p.m. The School decided to postpone our House Matches until Wed 28th April in the afternoon. The twelve pupils who were going on the E Lothian Cross Country Running had their event postponed due to bad weather, until 22nd April.
It all sounds very busy. It is all very busy. Next term, as well as squashing all these events in, we hit the ground running, with our Whole School Project on Health – for the first three weeks. This project is followed by a two-week Science whole school project. In amongst that we have several visitors speaking about Health and Eco & Bio-Diversity. P3 & 4 start their block of  swimming lessons.
Meanwhile, let’s enjoy the Easter Holidays. Have a good rest everyone.
