Head Teacher’s Blog

Well- it’s official- we are to be given the day’s holiday to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand it is always good to have a day off- even if you spend it working at home- you can at least do so at your own speed and with […]

Jubilee Holiday

We have had confirmation that the new Administration at ELC have approved Tuesday 5th June as a public holiday for the Queen’s Jubilee.  This means the children and staff will be off both the 4th and 5th June, returning on Wednesday 6th June to Humbie for a HATS day.

Headteacher’s blog

7th May 2012 What else would you do on a wet bank holiday but write a blog? As a teacher I relished in-service days as one of the few occasions when you could turn up with relatively little prepared. Since in-service days quite often came  after holidays, it was a gentle way to ease yourself […]

Fruit Only Days

The eco committee have been discussing the idea of having some fruit only days for snack.  We first discussed this during health week as a way of encouraging our 5 a day of fruit and veg.  Yesterday it caused some debate.  Each rep was to poll their pals to gauge opinion.  Next week the Eco committee hope  […]
