Our Junior Road Safety Officers Keven and Fabio led our road safety assembly to launch Road Safety Week.
We all enjoyed watching a video about safety when crossing roads, an interactive magic show and a quiz to help us to learn about Road Safety. They are also running a poster competition with the whole school with lots of prizes to be won for the most eye catching designs. Thanks too to Mr MacKay who supports the running of this pupil group.
Do you know someone who could do with a bit of goodwill this Christmas?
Edinburgh’s two major football clubs are setting aside sporting rivalry and coming together in a campaign designed to make Edinburgh the Capital of Goodwill over Christmas.
Please read this leaflet for more information and share it with anyone you think could use it.
Parents are all invited to join Mrs Mason for a Breakfast Blether and a hot drink/pastry from 8.50AM on Friday 1st December.
Parents are then invited to our P7 toy sale.
The school choir will be singing at the Dalry Gorgie Christmas Lights on Sunday 3rd December, at the Tree outside the entrance to Gorgie farm. It takes place from 6.00-6.30pm if you’re free and would like to come along.
The Scottish Government is drafting an education bill to improve education in Scotland by giving greater autonomy and decision making powers to both schools and headteachers.
Amongst other measures the bill will seek to
- Establish a “Headteacher’s Charter”.
- Improve parent and carer involvement in school life
- Establish regional Improvement Collaboratives.
The Scottish Government are consulting parents on implementing this plan.
If you wish to know more or to respond to the consultation then it is available on this link.
At this time of year handwashing and hygiene are even more vital than usual in order to avoid the various illnesses that spread in the Winter.
To help your child to understand just how to thoroughly wash their hands we have linked to a really good Hand Washing Video .
This technique is good to apply all year around too.
Section 30 of the Education (Scotland) Act 1980 clearly states that parents do not have an automatic right to take their child out of school during term time.
Parents who chose to do so may be adversely affecting their child’s educational progress.
However, for some pupils these trips may be of great religious, cultural or family significance.
If you wish to apply to take your child on such a trip then please read through and complete the attached information and application form. On completion please return it to the school office and we will endeavour to give you our response promptly.
