P7 Fundraising Raffle Starts Next Week

When we return to school on Tuesday, P7’s will be selling tickets for £1 a strip.

The prize pot is growing every day, and even more have been added since the photo was taking by a pupil this morning.

The prizes really are great! Some notable prizes include vouchers for Cakes N Shakes, Amarone, a 60 minute treatment at Valhalla, a range of products to pamper yourself with, a few sweet treats, an electric toothbrush and some fun looking toys!

So the raffle really suits adults and children alike! If you like the sound of supporting the P7 fundraisers, as well as giving yourself a chance to win, be sure to buy from the P7s starting Tuesday 21st.

A massive thank you to the local businesses and school community for the very generous donations.

P7a Pupils visit Pinkie Farm Shop to collect items for raffle

Yesterday, four pupils nipped along to the local shop to collect 3 fantastic prizes donated by Dan and Pinkie Farm Shop, which they were very grateful for.

Pupils phoned up local businesses, including the Farm Shop, to follow up on persuasive letters we sent up a few weeks back. This was a display of great confidence, and excellent communication skills.

So far, Tesco Musselburgh have also donated gifts for the raffle as well as some kind donations in to the school office. We hope to get a few more items in before we reveal the big news about the raffle coming soon!

P7 taking responsibility for uniform

We have been taking responsibility to check on the classes and how people are doing at wearing uniform.

We’ve been using a tracker on google classroom. It is good so we can see easily how many are wearing the uniform.

So far it looks like P1a and P1c are amongst the best for all wearing uniform….. but there is still a couple days left including tomorrow and Friday to make sure you are wearing uniform.

The winning class gets the uniform teddies, Pinkie and Peter!

Thanks, from Jason and Simeon!


Movie Making Premier – P7a

A reminder that there will be a presentation of the movie that P7a contributed to screened at the Brunton Theatre on Wednesday 22nd May at 10.30am. All parents/carers/ wider family are invited to come along to the free event.

Here is the official press release for the project:

“Movie Making Apprentices”

An exciting new film is set to be screened at the Brunton on Wednesday 22nd May, 10.30am, all created by East Lothian Secondary and Primary School pupils.  The schools set up as four separate business teams to get their film made on schedule and on budget.

Musselburgh Grammar School pupils acted as the production company and steered the whole script, voice recording and final edit. Whitecraig Primary School P7’s carefully designed and created all the artwork; Burgh Primary School learnt the skills of professional animators to bring the story to life; and finally Pinkie St Peters Primary crafted the dynamic soundtrack music and added sound effects to make sure the audience are gripped or relaxed at all the right moments.

Each school business team had to present their work to another client school before the film could move to the next stage. These were anxious moments, as each team explained what they had created, and how it fitted the brief, but all teams were hugely supportive of each other. These were also fun days as the Primary School pupils mixed with pupils whom they will meet at Musselburgh Grammar School next year.

The multi-school film has been managed by East Lothian Council’s Arts Service. Lesley Smith, Team Manager Arts said “the Movie Making Apprentices project used film as the focus to support young people in a creative learning environment. I am looking forward to seeing the new movie at a special screening at The Brunton“. The project was facilitated by D fie foe, a creative film production company, with David Trouton a local music specialist.
