Primary 4 and Primary 5 teamed up to host a bake sale to raise money for Comic Relief. Both classes worked really hard and there were some amazing treats on offer to buy. Together we mananged to raise £138.53 to add to our whole school fundraising total for Comic Relief!
It might be the first few days of the new year, but some of us are still trying to hold on to those last few memories of Christmas and all that it brings!

Hi, it’s Martin here from P3b!
I’m in the Eco Committee and have made some posters to put up in the school. I have three posters, one that says ‘keep the park clean’, one that says ‘always recycle paper’ and also one that says ‘do not cut down trees’ (unless you plant more).
This term we are heading towards getting our Green Flag (as an environmentally aware school)! We have done lots of very exciting things, like running a Fairtrade tuck shop to raise money for Fairtrade. In the New Year we will be doing Big Schools Birdwatch- more information on that to come!
We would like to ask you how you have been getting on with your Eco working. Have you been recycling, putting litter in bins and switching off lights when they’re not needed?
Thank you for looking after our world,
Today we came to school in all sorts of funny outfits to raise money for Children in Need! Our fantastic crossing patrol wardens worked extra hard, braving the wind and rain to keep us safe crossing the road. Here they are in P3b after a particularly heavy downpour!
On Friday morning, Primary 6 and 7 donned rubber gloves and high-vis vests to take part in a community project to beautiful Abbeyhill. This involved cleaning graffiti and fly posting off of shops, lampposts, traffic islands and wherever we could spot it. The pupils showed a lot of enthusiasm and were determined to make Abbeyhill look as good as it should.
Upon retuning to the meeting point with our tools, the pupils were asked to line up and were delighted to receive a certificate and a voucher for Blackwells for all their hard work. A well deserved reward for a community clean up!
