Dear Parents and Carers
We had a lovely walk down to St Andrew’s Leith church on Thursday morning for our school Easter Service. Thank you to our volunteers for accompanying us. Our school choirs performed their ‘Studio to Stage’ songs , P7 pupils read some readings and Reverend Rob Mackenzie shared the Easter Story. We thoroughly enjoyed singing ‘I’m a Spring Chicken’ at the end of the service.
Visit to Prospect Bank
Our Pupil Council were invited along to Prospect Bank Primary School to watch their Easter Assembly. The children were delighted their ‘Buddy’ school’s pupil could attend their assembly and we hope to invite some Prospect Bank children to our next class sharing learning assembly.
Thank you to our P6 team; Cameron, Aiden, Ruby, Jonny, Taba, Ellie, Alasdair, James, Calum, Megan, Sam and Matthew who took part in the swimming Gala at The Royal Commonwealth Pool. They demonstrated good team spirit and enjoyed the competition.
Hermie’s Got Talent
On Thursday afternoon, just before the Easter Holidays, Louise (P7) organised a fantastic Hermie’s Got Talent for the whole school and what a great job she did! This involved a lot of planning and organisation…and some help from her classmates. We have some very talented children, and what a great audience they were too! There were many compliments afterwards, from teachers and children alike. Well done! Congratulations to our winner Hamish with his ‘Rap’.
