At the end of our Olympic afternoon, Gold, Silver and Bronze medals were awarded to three children in every class and ‘country’. As each winner was announced, Lesley Nicholson, our honorary guest, gave pupils their medals before they took their pride of place on the ‘podium’.
It was also a chance to say goodbye to people who are moving on from Sanderson’s Wynd and Tranent; Lesley is leaving her post as Active Schools Coordinator to take up the role of Club Golf East Coast Regional manager in July with Scottish Golf, Heather Williams DHT will leave to take up her new post as Head Teacher of Elphinstone Primary in August and Catherine Parcell, P3 teacher and Moira Copeland, classroom assistant will both be retiring at the end of term. The parents and pupils took the opportunity to present them with flowers and gifts, and to wish them well in their future.
