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.
Our fabulous parents at Abbeyhill Primary School organised an International Afternoon last Friday, with food galore from countries all around the world, along with arts, crafts, and entertainment from parents and pupils celebrating the diverse backgrounds and cultures that we have here at Abbeyhill. It was a tremendous success! A HUGE thank you to all of the parents who helped to organise the event, who ran activties on the day and who made all of the delicious food. A special mention also to Freddie, who certainly had the best “chilli challenge” face, and to Brooke, Claire and Charlotte who entertained the crowds with their fabulous dancing. A fantastic way to end the term!
Primary 1 had a lovely, relaxing afternoon creating beautiful daffodils. These are special gifts to leave for our parents to collect tonight and tomorrow at the Parent Consultations. We really hope they get a lovely surprise.
We were inspired by the real daffodils that we have on display in our classroom.
There are lots of new groups and activties in our local area for parents and carers. Click on the image above to see the full and updated programme. You can also read about Information for Parents and Carers with Young children in Leith & the North East of Edinburgh below.
