Get Going

Celebration Open Day Tuesday 3rd July Mussselburgh Sports Centre 2-4pm Do you want to know more about Get Going?

This family healthy lifestyle programme aims to encourage children to get active, eat well and work towards a healthy weight. This is a fantastic opportunity for families, particularly those with any concerns about healthy weight, to come and learn more about the programme and ask questions in a very relaxed atmosphere.

During a fun packed couple of hours you will get to take part in lots of fun activities as a family and individually, look round the market place, make smoothies, enjoy fruit tasting and leave with lots of goodies from water bottles to a 5 a day fruit bag. Come as a family and enjoy the start of the summer holidays with a healthy kick. Places need to be booked in advance and tickets will be sent out prior to the day.

To book your place, please contact:- Caroline Kaye Tel: 01620 828 760 / 07530 311 852 Email: ckaye@eastlothian.gov.uk by Friday June 29th.

Remember to wear comfortable clothing and suitable footwear for taking part in physical activity.

Planned visit of children from Chernobyl – please can you help?

On June 7th ten children from Chernobyl will be visiting St. Mary’s and Kingsmeadow for the afternoon.  The children have been brought to Scotland by Chernobyl Children’s Life Line.  We would like to offer our support to the Charity and the children by collecting some clothing and ‘everyday essentials’ that the children could take back home to share with their families.  We are looking for donations of clothes and shoes. The children visiting will be aged 10-12 years old but as they may have siblings and relatives who are in need of clothing, any good quality children’s clothes (including underwear and socks) will be most welcome.

In order to collect a variety of ‘everyday essentials’ we have allocated an item/s for each class.  If you think you could provide something for your child to donate it would be very much appreciated.

Primary  1/2  – pens  pencils (including coloured), erasers and sharpeners

Primary 2/3 – rulers and pencil cases

Primary  3/4 – notebooks (but not A4-too heavy) and geometry sets

Many thanks
