Purple Pinkies!

Congratulations to everyone for the fabulous result to our Purple Pinkie day! The Rotary Club came back to our assembly this week to say a special thank you to everyone for supporting their work. Hannah and Melissa deserve a special thank you for boosting the fundraising with their homebaking stall.

Here’s a maths question for you…

We raised just over £ 141.00 for the vaccinations to help eradicate Polio in the world. Each vaccine costs 20p. How many children have we helped protect from this awful disease?

Now, Microsoft Tycoon Bill Gates and his wife have promised to give £1.50 for every £1.00 that we raise. So…

How many children have been helped altogether?

First pupil to give Mrs. McHugh the correct answer can choose from her lucky bag.

Could this be Spring?

At last! The beautiful weather has dried out the grass and we can try something new for our warm-up!

A Classroom Full of Fiction!

What a great effort Primary One – and a special thank you to your parents and carers!
We had a very colourful classroom on World Book Day, full of exciting characters. We nearly got taken over by stormtroopers. Mind you, I think the knights would have had something to say about that!

We had a very interesting morning talking about the authors who wrote our favourite books and why the stories were special to us. It was great fun to see what other people liked to read too.

A surprise visitor at our assembly today gave us cause to celebrate success!

At the end off last term, Primary 6/7 had entered a competition while at a Food and Farming event hosted by East Links Farm. Today, Karen Somerville of the Royal Highland Education Trust came to tell us that, from the whole of East Lothian, we had 5 prize winners. Congratulations to Anya Wyllie, Aiysha Oz, Paul Cunningham, Crea Campbell and an extra mention for Emma de Costa, who is the overall winner for East Lothian. Great work, everyone!
