We had a fantastic turn out of parents and carers who joined us for our Welcome Evening.
It was great to gather together to welcome everyone back following the summer break and for you to meet your child’s class teacher.
Mrs Gracie spoke about the National Improvement Priorities and the important role parental engagement plays in supporting your child’s learning. If you were unable to attend our Welcome Evening, Mrs Gracie’s Powerpoint presentations can be downloaded below and viewed at home.
The Primary 1 classes celebrated their 100th day in school this week. They got together and took part in some great activities including making 100 Day crowns, doing 100 exercises and painting 100 dots. Most importantly, they reflected on all the things they have learnt and achieved in school so far and felt justifiably proud. We are very proud of them too.
“Trainer” Tuesday 22nd of September sees the launch of the School Streets project with restricted access to Abbey Street before and after school. To mark the launch, we have organised a “Walking Bus” leaving from four different locations within our catchment. Letters have gone home and the children were reminded of the “stops” at this morning’s assembly. Look out for school adults waiting to lead you from your stop at 8:20am. Then once we arrive at school enjoy a free walker’s breakfast. We would really like families to join us on Tuesday and look forward to our first “Walking Bus” of 2015. Don’t forget to wear your trainers!
Primary 1-7 enjoyed a fabulously sunny Sports Day at Meadowbank Stadium on Tuesday afternoon. Everyone enjoyed all the fun activities and then the younger classes cheered on the P4-7 pupils who braved the 100m and 400m competitive runs. Well done to everyone for taking part and a big thank you to Ms Rolland who organised it all for us, and to all the families who came along to support us.
