Primary 7 had a fantastic day on Friday and the sun shone for them. They had good fun planning their day. It started off with games at Murieston Park with Mr D. We then came back to school for a movie and snacks. They all enjoyed a Dominoes Pizza in the playground. They then had a mystery surprise, which was an ice cream van in the playground. Everyone got a 99 cone. The afternoon finished off with a water fight. Poor Mrs Smith got absolutely soaked.

Swimming is limited places for 4 weeks – all FREE but they must be in CURRENT primary 4-7 and CANNOT swim or are VERY WEAK swimmers. No younger pupils at this stage due to COVID. Fill in the form and Shona will let those that are successful know on Monday afternoon that they have a place (it is not guaranteed that if you fill in the form they get a place).
P1/2 Miss McDermot’s class and P2 Miss McArthur’s class completed their Roots of Empathy program with instructor Mrs Harris-Toner. Each week the children enjoyed getting to know Baby Alan and seeing how he was changing and growing. We connected with our Roots of Empathy family through wonderful photos, videos, news and voice messages sent by his mum Jordan.
The lessons gave the children an opportunity to share their feelings and experiences. The children’s especially enjoyed the art activities and thinking of their wishes for Baby Alan as he grows up. Last week the children were delighted to receive their well deserved certificates.
