Summer Run

We’ll be taking to the railway path on Friday morning when the P3 – P7s will be running in our 2km and 3km summer races.
We’re looking for marshalls and supporters so please come to cheer the children on, anywhere along the route from the Howden Bridge to the end of Hillview Road.
The run will start at 9:30am, from George Crescent, with the 3k runners going up and over the bridge and the 2km runners taking a right onto the old railway at the Howden.

Scratch Day


Pupils from P5 and P7 led an event today to share Scratch with other pupils in the school and with parents.


This was part of an international Scratch Day with 234 Scratch Day events planned in 53 countries, including Argentina, Nigeria, and Vietnam and of course Ormiston Primary School. Our event was one of two in Scotland, and we shared it on the Scratch site here.



Citizenship Fortnight

All classes in the school will be involved in projects in and around the school during the last two weeks of the Easter term. Look out for the P6 and 7 pupils who will be helping to clean paths, wash dishes, hoover carpets, empty dustbins and walk dogs just to name a few of the jobs being asked of them by residents of Ormiston.

Infant Nativity

Just a reminder that the infants have been practising very hard over the last few weeks to bring you ‘Cockadoodle Christmas’. There will be three performances – a dress rehearsal in the morning and then two performances for parents. The afternoon performance starts at 2pm and the evening one is at 6pm. Can children please come for 5.30pm in order to get ready.
