Visiting Artist – Tessa Lynch

After a recent enjoyable trip to Calton Hill, P4 had a follow up visit from local artist Tessa Lynch to work on an activity that focused on sketching the Edinburgh City sky line. The pupils worked together to draw their favourite buildings of the skyline using lines and shapes to create their images. A lot of team work and communication was needed to create the charcoal skyline pictures which are now proudly displayed in our classroom.

A Fond Farewell

Dear families,

As you will know, tomorrow is my last day at Abbeyhill as I am embarking on new adventures as Depute Head at the Royal High Primary in January, so I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you.  I have been at Abbeyhill for a long time and have known some of you now for over a decade!  We have such a diverse range of families here at Abbeyhill which makes our school community such a special one and throughout all of my years here, I have always felt valued and supported by you all.  I am of course, excited about the next chapter, but will miss the children and families here tremendously and Abbeyhill will always have a very special place in my heart.  Thank you for helping to make my time here so special.

Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas and a fun filled 2017.

Mrs Evans
