The Learning for Sustainability Summit is taking place on Thursday 30th May in the hall. We have invited all the schools in the area to join us and so far we have quite a few attending which is great. We are really looking forward to hearing what others schools have been up to in areas such as Eco, Global Citizenship, Outdoor learning and Fair Trade.
Just a reminder for your diaries that Sports’ Day for P1 – P7 will be held on Monday 10th June 2013 at 9.30am. Please watch out for a letter that we will be sending home next week with more details.
A group of primary 6 and 7 boys have been working with Mr Santer (p6/7 teacher) and songwriter Paul Brunton to write and record their own rap which you can hear by following the link below. Keep your eyes peeled for their first music video in the coming weeks. Move aside 50 Cent… jog on Eminem!!! JJ Beats are the new boys in town!
Mr Macpherson, the Biodiversity Officer from East Lothian Council, is coming on Tuesday 30th April to talk to all the classes about biodiversity and other Eco issues. We really look forward to his visit.
There is still a chance to get yourself tickets for the night! You can get these through the school or by speaking to Miss Flanagan. Tickets are £65 which includes a three course meal, wine and a disco ceilidh. We are raising funds for the East Lothian Special Needs Playscheme, with the aim to buy an “Eyegaze System”.
The Eyegaze Edge is a communication and control system for people with complex physical disabilities. The system is operated entirely with the eyes. By looking at control keys displayed on a screen, a person can synthesize speech, control his/her environment (lights, call bells, etc.), type, run computer software, operate a computer mouse, and access the Internet and e-mail. Eyegaze Edge Systems are being used to write books, attend school and enhance the quality of life of people with disabilities all over the world.

Alternatively if you cannot attend the ball but would still like to help we would welcome a donation (cheques can be made payable to ELSNP) which you can give to the school addressed for the attention of Miss Flanagan. We are also holding a raffle on the night and are looking for prizes of any shape and size. Again this can be given to the school by Friday 4th of May.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support people have already shown. Your donations and raffle tickets were much appreciated. The winners of our raffle were the parents of Hunter Crooks (P1) and Marcos and Diego Sanchez (P2 & P5).
