As I am sure all of you know we have been collecting backpacks for the Mary’s Meals Project. Our target was 40 bags and we are delighted to announce that today we exceeded our target and collected a total of 41 bags!!
Well done and a massive THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this success!
Elphinstone Primary School are collecting resources to fill backpacks to go to Mary’s Meals. All contributions, big or small, old or new are welcome (except toothpaste!). Please refer to your pamplet to see what we need. There are also posters in the windows of the school and information on our Outdoor Notice board. Thanks for your support! Backpacks will be collected on the 1st May 2013. This photo shows the group of pupils who are leading the collection for Mary’s Meals.
Have you noticed our signs, posters, stickers and labels around the outside of our school asking people to clean up after their dog? Well…..this continues to be a problem! ….So we got on the phone to East Lothian Council’s Dog warden, Carl, who came along and spray painted warnings on the pavement outside our school. Let’s hope this helps!!!!! Thanks Carl!
Clyde, the Commonwealth Games Mascot visited our school on Tuesday morning. We watched a DVD about how he became the Mascot for the games. He was very friendly and pupils were impressed with his ‘spikey, purple hair!’
It was lovely to see everyone back at school looking healthy and happy after the Easter Break! Ms Callender started in P6/7 today and we wish her a warm welcome to our school. The Library van came this afternoon and Mr Farren was in this morning for brass! A busy start to the term.
Fun was had by all at Elphinstone’s Red Nose Drive! Thanks to all our parents/carers, grandparents and friends that came!
