BAT EVENT

For those people who have a ticket for the bat event on Friday we are going to meet in the school grounds at 8.30pm. We probably won’t be able to see bats until after 9pm so the rangers will do a few activities with us before we go out. This event, at the request of the school, is being run by the East Lothian ranger service. As with all their bat events it is important to know that the accompanying adults are responsible for the children in their care, not the rangers or any school staff present. The rangers have also asked that each family bring a torch with them and to have suitable footwear and clothing. This should be a great night and a late night! See you at 8.30pm.

Due to the nature of the event we had to limit the number of tickets sold to 45.  I know this caused disapointment for some families, be assured we did try  to hold 2 events this session.  The rangers have said that they could offer another session in September, which we can hopefully arrange.

We have started learning about schooling and life in Tanzania and comparing that to what our lives are like.

We will be taking part in the 2012 campaign and have a visit planned from an MP in June who will take our messages to David Cameron the Prime Minister.  We will keep you updated on our progress.

THANKS

Mrs Lynn, Mrs Leslie and myself would like to thank the parents for their gifts.  We appreciate the sentiment but spending a week at camp with your children was gift enough!

Going Bananas

We have just signed up for a Glow Live event, Going Bananas, which will help us with our algebra this term. It is an event done through a live link alongside many other schools in Scotland. What a great opportunity to have fun while learning tricky concepts.

The Tallest Tower In KingsWood

On the 4th day Group N all went to Team Tech. At Team Tech you had to build a tower as high as it can go. Group N made the highest tower in Kingswood. IT WAS 7 FOOT TALL. The instructer was so amazed! Dylan says “it was okay”, Felix says “at the start there was a load of arguing but eventually we got together then we won.”  “It was really fun” said Charlie bell.;) Sascha: “I did not like it.”

This isn't us, but the activity is the same

In quad biking we had helmets and harness .In my opinion and lots of others I think it the quad biking track was rather small, they had two quite fast quads but in the end it was really fun!

This was similar to our track
