Nursery Visit to Toy Library

We had a lovely morning at the Gorgie/Dalry Toy Library. We found out how to join the Library which has over 240 toys for families to borrow and the children had a great time playing with some of the toys.

The Toy Library is in St. Martin’s, Dalry Road, just along from the school.  It is open every Monday between 10am – 11.30am. There is also a parent and toddler group at St Martin’s at the same time.  Everyone is welcome!

Children as Human Rights Defenders Project

Last school year, as part of the Children as Human Rights Defenders project, which leds up to the participation of Members of Children’s Parliament in the UN Day of General Discussion 2018, P5 (then P4) took part in a children’s right workshop. Many of these happened across Scotland.

Thanks to Children’s Parliament for organising and sharing the video of this event.

New JRSOs Hit the Ground Surveying

Here at Dalry we have chosen our new JRSOs (junior road safety officers) and they have hit the ground running.

This week Andrei and Sarim attended City Chambers for the JRSO launch day. They split up to go through five fact finding courses each, covering a range of topics from cycling to and from school to the dangers of pollution.

Back in school the JRSOs surveyed the whole school on behalf of sustrans to help build a picture of how Scotland travels to school.

Congratulations to Andrei and Sarim on becoming JRSOs and on such a great start in the roles.
