Stockbridge Market – Sunday 4th December

Primary 6 have been working flat out this week to get ready for our stall at Stockbridge Market this Sunday.  The class will be selling handmade Christmas Wreaths, lavender and cinnamon bags and little Christmassy boxes filled with shortbread biscuits – perfect for stocking fillers.  All of the money raised will go into the class Lagganlia Fund, to help towards the cost of school camp.  Please come along and support the class at Stockbridge market on Sunday – between 10am and 4pm.   A huge thank you to Donna for organising the stall for us and to the Edinburgh Flower School for donating all of the wreath making materials and offering some of the pupils a masterclass.   A very special thank you also to Mrs Black and Mrs Tansey, who are now wreath making experts – we couldn’t have done it without your help this week getting everything ready!


Ghosts, witches and even a Snape descended on Abbeyhill last Friday, for a spooktacular disco! We danced and played a lot of games. A huge thanks to our parent council for organising this event, and to Mrs Pender and Ms McCourt for brushing off their dancing shoes. As you can tell, we had a scream!


School closure update 

As far as we understand, Scottish Water have identified the cause of the issues in the area and have taken steps to rectify the situation. Water supply should be gradually restored over the afternoon and we expect to be open as normal tomorrow although I would ask you to double check our website or our Twitter feed in the morning. 

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Sally Ketchin, Head Teacher
