Strictly Come Pinkie 2017

On Wednesday we had this years annual Pinkie Talent Show…. with the them of Strictly Come Pinkie!

It was an entertaining feast for your eyes and ears! We had dancing, singing, comedy and gymnastics on show. In our eyes, everyone was a winner and all were so courageous to perform in front of such a huge audience! Well done everyone. Our fabulous winner this year who took away the glitter trophy was Maddie from P6 who sang ‘The Climb’.

We want to say a big thank you to our panellists who were Mr Scott, Alan Penman, Colin Smith and Anna Potter!

Check out the spectacular event which happened on Wednesday, captured by Mr Smith and his camera.



Parent Consultations (first night)

We have just had our first of two evenings for parents consultations last night and enjoyed a time when we can share information about your child(ren)’s progress with you. We would like to give special thanks to all staff and parents/carers for the evening as well as the Strings teachers and Pinkie Strings pupils for giving us such a wonderful ‘open rehearsal’. It was great to hear such wonderful music flowing throughout the school. Well done all and we look forward to meeting more parents and children this evening.


Summer Fair

fair2016(screen)It’s going to be another great Pinkie Summer Fair this year. The very popular Chocolate Tombola and equally popular Bottle Tombola are going to be returning, as is Bash The Beastie along with many other activities to keep you busy!  There will also be a range  of tempting cakes and ice cream to help replace all that energy used on the bouncy castle! There will also be a book, toy and school uniform stall selling some great items…more donations for this are welcome! Also don’t forget to return your tickets to enter the school raffle for the chance to win some great prizes including an iPad!

P2B Go for Gold with Gardening Scotland

The fantastic award winning entry from Pinkie.
The fantastic Gold Medal winning entry from Pinkie.

Congratulations to P2B who were awarded a gold medal at the recent Scotland’s Gardening Festival at Ingliston 3-5th June.

For three days the grounds of the Royal Highland Centre Edinburgh underwent a transformation in an explosion of scent and colour. This was Gardening Scotland – the national gardening and outdoor living show and Scotland’s gardening festival!

It is the biggest plant fair in Scotland and promised to provide everything from an abundance of beautiful plants to tools, equipment, garden furniture and all the inspiration you could need to make your garden grow.

Great friend of Pinkie St Peter’s Primary, Heather Paul worked every Tuesday morning  leading up to the event, taking small groups of children to work on a special planter themed, ‘The Teddy Bear’s Picnic’. Every child created a drawing about their own Teddy Bear’s Picnic which the children had had one lovely sunny morning outside. They children also pressed ivy leaves, and had pictures showing how they had made the planter. Mrs Barclay and Heather took the planter to the show grounds on the afternoon of Thursday 2nd June and on Friday morning Heather phoned the school to tell us that the class had been awarded the gold medal.

So well done to everyone in P2B; this was an amazing achievement! Special thanks too to Heather Paul who was able to make this happen.

Please note that classes will not be attending the exhibition on the Friday morning.
The exhibition will be an opportunity for the children to share the work they have been doing over the past few weeks on the Riding of the Marches and the history of Musselburgh.
We look forward to seeing you!
