The P7s, Miss Thomson and Mrs Watson have arrived safely at Benmore and are busy settling in – unpacking, making their bunk beds and exploring the house and surrounding area. After dinner this evening, they will head out for a night walk – in the dark!!!
Moving On Up – Primary Seven Visit Interesk on PhotoPeach
Primary Seven visited Interesk with Dougie and Heather. They tried the computers, played Guitar Hero and found out about all the different activities and services available to them as young people living in the Musselburgh area. They enjoyed it and said they will be back, thank you!
Musselburgh Cluster held a competition to design our own Olympic torches. The winners were chosen and then began the journey. We received the torches from Musselburgh Grammar School. The whole school welcomed them into Whitecraig with lots of flags waving and cheering. Next it was our turn to take the torches to the Burgh PS. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the walk. We were welcomed to the Burgh by the whole school, a piper and even a choir. What a fantastic journey!

At last the rain stopped and we were able to hold our school sports day. We had team events and individual races. Well done to all the winners!

With a Little Help From My Friends on PhotoPeach
On Wednesday we celebrated the work that the Primary 5 and 6 Peer Mediators have done this year to keep our playground a happy place where problems are solved by the children themselves. Carol and Morag who trained our mediators came back to present certificates and special awards.
We also invited parents to share the celebrations and they joined us outside for playtime to see what we have been doing with the ‘loose materials’.
