We have a great opportunity to raise some money this coming Sunday. The Edinburgh Marathon ends in Pinkie grounds and we are going to set up a stall selling juice/biscuits/crisps etc. There will be thousands of people around so it would be good to take advantage of the captured audience!! We are looking for cover from 10am til 2pm or maybe earlier if anyone is keen. Volunteers for an hour/half an hour or more would be really appreciated.
Please choose your preferred time slot on the form below, we will try and get everybody the slot that they choose.
Planning for the Summer Fête is well underway but to ensure it’s success we need your help!
Friday 17th May
Dress down day…..instead of bringing payment we ask that children bring a donation for our bottle stall (shampoo, bubble bath, juice etc) and/or chocolate for our chocolate tombola.
A couple of weeks before the Fête, all children will be given an empty paper plate which we would ask you to fill with a goody for our Cakes stall. This donation can be brought to school on Friday 31st May at earliest or handed in the morning of the Fête. If you wish to hand in goods in containers, please ensure to label them with your child’s name and class.
We also need donations of the following items which can be handed into the school office the week of the Fête. Toys, books, DVD’s, CD’s, plants and used school uniforms.
Our Summer Fête is the main fundraiser or the year and in order to make it a success volunteers are needed to help run stalls on the day and/or set up the day before and help to clear up at the end of the day.
Many thanks in advance for your support and we hope to see you all there!
Take a look at some of the fun that we had last year.
Last Friday, as part of East Lothian’s Literacy Week, pupils left home dressed not in their school uniforms, but dressed as their favourite book characters or super heros! Not to be outdone, teaching staff appeared dressed as…..well how many characters can you spot?

A team of four P6 pupils from our school recently took part in the final of the East Lothian heat of the 2013 Euroquiz against ten other teams. Our team managed to get fourth place. Which is a fantastic achievement! Congratulations must be given to the winners of the East Lothian heat, Law, who go forward to represent East Lothian in the national final at the Scottish Parliament in May.
The quiz is run by the Scottish European Educational Trust who state that the subjects covered in the quiz include history, geography, sport, culture, languages and the European Union. This broad selection of subjects does allow some rather challenging questions, so why not try to answer a few sample questions from a selection of quiz rounds and see how you do! No peeking at reference books or seeking answers online! If you do get stuck try asking one of the P6 team!
