Remember that classes for the children with Active Schools are extremely sought after. So to avoid disappointment, please book early.

Tranent Charrette Survey

On Friday the 1st of May there was a presentation of the proposals emerging from the Tranent Town Centre Charrette. The display material is now on show at Tranent Library until the 15th May 2015. There is also a feedback survey available in the library which can be completed and returned at reception.

The exhibition is also available at with a link to the on-line version of the feedback survey.

It would be great if you were able to help our community by taking part in the survey and popping in to the library to have a look.

Town Centre Charrette

As you will no doubt be aware by now the Town Centre Charrette for Tranent is taking place this week – an opportunity for the community as a whole to help develop a masterplan for the centre of the town that will meet their needs and help revitalise the town centre for the benefit of the whole community.

There are a number of different sessions arranged over the coming week where people can find out more and get involved in the designs – but there is 1 in particular that I am hoping you will be able to help further promote to young people and parents picking their kids up from school on Friday.

The Open Design Studio – Friday 27th from 12-2:30pm in the main hall at Ross High School – has been timed specifically around the end of the school day to give people and families a chance to drop in on the process while they are already out and about, see what has been discussed so far and give their input and ideas. 

More details about the rest of the sessions and how else people can get involved can be found at or on Facebook



Red Nose Day

In aid of Comic Relief we will be raising money in St Martin’s this Friday the 13th of March. This day marks RED NOSE DAY. A day to raise money and give relief to those who need it most.
In school we are having a dress down in red day and all staff, parents and pupils are invited to bring in £1 as a donation to help this fantastic cause. If you wish to give more than £1, then please do.

We look forward to seeing your red costumes on Friday but for now take a moment to take part in this interactive video explaining why we are raising money for Comic Relief. You will explore the life of a young girl called Ngosa and travel to Kitwe in Zambia to learn more about her.

Happy World Book Day!

Our children are S.O.A.Ring today! This morning some pupils gathered in the gym hall to Switch Off And Read their favourite books. They found it rather therapeutic and relaxing.
Why don’t you give it a go. Switch off that television for 30 mins tonight and help save electricity and our environment.

Parental Feedback on P1 Family Packs

It’s that time again! We need your help in gathering feedback about this year’s P1 Family Packs.
