All Primary Three children should report to John Muir Campus as normal on Friday 17th May. We will make our way over to the Lochend Campus with our classes for Assembly. Primary Three will dismiss from the Lochend Campus on Friday. If you normally meet your child on a Friday you will need to be at the Lochend Campus for dismissal at 12.20pm.
Many thanks to all the parents and children for making an extra special effort to walk/cycle/scoot to school this week. We are very proud to be a school where very few of our children even consider getting the car to and from school. Keep it up.
We also are rewarded for promoting healthy ways to school. Today sees the arrival of the bicycle storage Pod at Lochend Campus. This was our prize for all your wonderful efforts during “The Big Pedal”.
Over 600 children attended a fantastic bubble show show this morning at the John Muir Campus. We had pupils here from West Barns, East Linton, Cherrytrees Nursery and Pumkin Patch Nursery. The show was fantastic. BANG!!!
Well done for all the crazy hair, the red noses, the outfits and last but not least the fantastic baking brought in by lots of parents and children. All the money raised will be donated to Comic Relief.
Great to see all those bikes in the bike racks today and yesterday! We’re now in 3rd in the large primary school place in The Big Pedal! Dunbar Grammar are also 3rd in their category http://bigpedal.org.uk/schools/rankings/2Can we get to first place?
The lollipop lady has said her job has been so much easier this week with significantly fewer cars. She asked us to pass on her thanks to the children for persuading their parents to cycle to school.
On Friday David Gilmore from ELC is setting up a time lapse camera to record the children and parents arriving on their bikes at the John Muir Campus. This will record over 30 minutes and will be available here as a short 1 minute clip. So even if the weather is like today please take the bike.
