Inter House Sports

Senior inter-house sports

The first senior inter-house sports matches took place this week. Unfortunately, the snowy weather put paid to the first round of hockey and football, but Law and Fidra kicked off proceedings when the snow melted, on Thursday.

In what proved to be very close matches, Fidra were victorious in the hockey, by one goal, the winning goal scored by Harry Bateman. In the football, Law turned the tables, beating Fidra 4-2.

Well done to our Young Ambassadors, Taine Middleton and Robbie Wales, for bringing this event from an idea into reality.

Next week’s matches –

Tuesday – Hockey and football – Glen v Fidra

Thursday – Hockey and football – Craig v Law

 

 

Free School Meals

Is your child eligible for free school meals, and if so, have you registered?

Schools receive additional funding of £1,200 from the Scottish Government for every pupil in P1 to S3 who is registered for free school meals. This is called Pupil Equity Funding, and schools use this additional money to help fund a wide range of initiatives to support achievement and provide the best possible opportunities for children’s learning.

How do I know if my child is eligible for free school meals?

Please visit our website www.eastlothian.gov.uk  to check your eligibility and download an application form.

Even if your child does not wish to take up the option of having a free school meal every day, we would encourage you to register so that your child’s school will receive the Pupil Equity Funding allowance to support their learning.
