P6 Lagganlia Camp

P6 Have Arrived At Camp!!

We have received a phone call from Mr Hutcheson to let us know that P6 have arrived safe and sound at Lagganlia.

On the way up, they had a stop at Dunkeld to stretch their legs.

The children are currently having lunch, making up their beds and getting ready to head out on their first activity.

We hope that they have a brilliant week at Lagganlia!

Thank you Blackwell’s!

Blackwell’s helped us to celebrate World Book Day today by bringing a stall to school. They brought enough £1 World Book Day books to ensure that each Hermie pupil go home with a free book today. They also offered  a 20% discount on their other books. It was lovely seeing so many parents and carers coming in at the end of the day to visit the stall. Thank you so much Blackwell’s!

Schools of Cooperation Level 3

Hermitage Park Primary is the first school in Edinburgh to receive the level 3 Schools of Co-operation award. This award was given to us by the Co-Operative Education Trust Scotland (CETS) and was awarded after a presentation by the Pupil Council to Morag Pendry and Hugh Donnelly.


To become a school of co-operation we had to democratically select and implement a co-operatively led school project chosen by the pupils and show increased awareness of co-operative values and principles (caring for others; democracy; equality; honesty; openness; self-help; self-responsibility; social responsibility; solidarity).  We follow and promote these values in school and cover them in whole school house meetings every month.


We were delighted when Morag announced that we were awarded level 3.  We previously had a level one award and managed to bypass level two with our project.schools-of-coop
