All children starting Primary 1 at Dalry Primary School in August were invited to our very special ‘Moving On Up’ day with their families. The children enjoyed a creative activity followed by a visit to our Primary 1 classrooms while parents and carers learned more about how our school supports all children to make a successful transition to Primary 1. St Martin’s Toy Library, the Childsmile Dental Health team, local Health Visitors and Gingerbread After School Care were also available to provide information about the services they provide and refreshments were provided by the Parent Council.
The whole school enjoyed a fabulous performance from E.S.R.E. (Edinburgh Schools Rock Ensemble) on Monday afternoon. This group of talented musicians attend high schools across the city and include Mrs Honeyman’s son Aidan who plays bass guitar with the band. E.S.R.E played a full set to the school and their finale was ‘Purple Rain’ which everyone danced and sang along to.
This weekend the Sharing Secrets arts festival comes to Gorgie and Dalry.
It’s a fantastic programme we are proud to support, with an amazing range of family activities for families.
Please do click through to the website for the festival and you’re sure to find something fun to do with the kids in the next week.
The Cubs raised £112.40 at their bake sale on Wednesday 22nd March for Comic Relief. As well as learning about all the things Comic Relief do round the world, all the work they’ve done will go towards a challenge badge and and a couple of activity badges (and the beavers will get a little something for all their help with the baking).
