The Stoneyhill teachers and staff would like to thank their families, friends and the school community for their kind donations. We have managed to raise £1’120 so far for Cancer Research from these very generous donations. The weather was kind to us and it was a great day for a great cause. Thanks again for your generosity.
Congratulations must go to Erin Crawford and Annabel Wyeth who won the Musselburgh Primary School heat of the Little & Large cooking competition. They took part in the Regional Finals at Knox Academy, Haddington recently and as you can see their dishes were fantastic. Well done Erin and Annabel. Masterchef here we come, Mrs Lynn Smail.

Thank you very much to everyone who contributed some baking to our Comic Relief Bake Sale. We were overwhelmed by the amount that was donated! We had lots of fun and did lots of Comic Relief related activites in our BOSS clubs today. Some people had their faces painted as red noses, some people designed red noses and some children decorated cakes. Lots of people also made a fantastic effort to do something funny for money. There were lots of crazy hairstyles!
Thanks again for all your donations.
We will let you know how much we managed to raise shortly. We will also put up some pictures.

Just a wee reminder that it is Comic Relief on Friday 15th March. We will be having a bake sale on Friday morning. If you would like to contribute something to the bake sale could you please bring it in on Thursday or Friday morning and take it to Mrs Thomas’s class. Each class will be given a time to buy some treats so make sure you have some loose change with you. Please remember not to use any nut products in your baking.
Jesse J is shaving her hair off for Comic Relief. We thought it would be fun to show our support by coming to school on Friday with silly hair or wigs!

On Saturday 22nd February Stoneyhill’s badminton team came 4th at the regional finals of the Scottish Schools’ Badminton Union Primary Quaich competition in Ravenscraig. Following their win at the Mid/East Lothian Primary Quaich competition last month, the team was representing not only Stoneyhill but also Mid/East Lothian.
The team did very well and tried their hardest against the best teams/schools from all over Scotland. They also looked very good sporting their new Stoneyhill t-shirts that were purchased by the PFG!
We would like to take this opportunity to wish all pupils, parents and staff a very Happy New Year. We are looking forward to welcoming all pupils back to school, at their usual time, on Tuesday 8th January.
Please note: From Wednesday 9th January pupils from P3 to P7 should line up at their respective doors when the bell rings at 8.50 am. Children in P1 and P2 should line up at their door when the bell rings at 9.00 am.

Congratulations to twelve Stoneyhill Singing Santas from P3-7 who visited East Coast FM radio station in Haddington today. The children had prepared a medley of Jingle Bells, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Well done everyone, you were absolutely fabulous! The children gave a fantastic live performance and received a very warm welcome at the radio station by all of the East Coast FM volunteers; thanks East Coast FM, that was great fun!
