Well done everyone. With all your support the Fair raised £838. A real team effort.
The Fundraising group of the Parent Council along with their merry bunch of helpers and elves and Scooby Doo (That’s strange Scooby Doo was a Christmas Pudding at the Prestonpans Light Parade last week!) worked really hard to give 250 children and adults a lovely and loud Christmas Disco last night.
Santa Claus was there and was on top form in his lovely grotto. Some children were a wee bit nervous because they hadn’t spoken to Santa before but Santa was lovely and funny and gave them all a wee pressy so everyone came out smiling. Thank you Santa.

And yes, I’m sorry to say this was the favourite music of the night!
Sports Day 2012 on PhotoPeach
Thanks to your fantastic family turnout, we enjoyed a great time at Sports Day this year. A decision was taken by the staff and by the Parent Council that we would introduce more competition into the event. However, that has proved a bit controversial. A number of children found it very upsetting that they didn’t win a race and get a winnner’s sticker. However, many people feel this reflects our experiences in life where we don’t win everything and that this builds our resilience. What are your thoughts? Please comment. We will also be asking you this in the last newsletter of the year so you can have your say on a tear off slip there too.
It’s the first time we have tried sports this way and we will certainly learn from our mistakes. We’ve made a big list of those already eg £1.50 was really too dear for an ice cream, confusion amongst staff about when children could have an ice cream, can we get the grass marked out for races etc
However, our thanks go to the staff and Mrs Sellwood for running the events, to our P7 helpers for giving us much needed assistance and to you for all coming along and supporting us in what was a great afternoon of fun and competition in sport.
What a fantastic day. Thank you all so much for coming along and taking part in everything on offer at the School Fair. It was heart warming to see so many families having a laugh together, wrestling, having a cuppa and a blether or a bit of pizza or tablet and watching magic, beating the goalie, buying plants, sweeties, ice cream, baking and winning prizes at our enormous raffle. I’m sure we all felt proud to be part of our community today.
We want to thank our hard working, creative, well organised Fundraising Group for making it all happen today. I know it’s been so much work for you all and you must feel you are never out of the school. You did everyone proud today and gave so many families a good day out. Thank you all.
We’ll post the amount raised once we have finalised it.
