Vedanth has added yet another success to his chess cap.
He participated in a chess tournament on Saturday in Glasgow. It was over the board tournament.
The tournament was organised by Chess Scotland and was a Primary Individual Championship.
Vedanth was ranked 12 at the start of the tournament out of 38. He played 5 rounds out of which his results were 3 Wins,1 Draw and 1 Loss. He finished 6th at the end of all rounds and he won first place in P5 & Under Category.
This picture is of a small section of our football playground at the end of a lunchtime.
We of course always try to reunite lunchboxes, tiffin tins and tupperwares with their owners at the time but as you can see from the picture the amount of lost items, and number lacking identifying features, can make be hard.
Sadly our lost property turns into a lunchbox mountain over the course of a term.
So if you can in any way mark your boxes with a name that would be very helpful. Either written in permament marker on the box, written on masking tape on the box or a proper name sticker. Even just a big sticker with a picture on that help’s the child identify their box and be a bit keener to care for it can help.
If you have lost a lunchbox or any property remember to check lost property.

Online Maths Circle- Saturday 26th March 2022
An online Maths Circles is one hour long events for 7-14 years old and their families. Children have a chance to tackle a variety of mathematical problems guided by University of Edinburgh staff and students. They are encouraged to behave as little mathematicians as they make conjectures, explore and explain possible solutions to open ended questions. We think these event would benefit all students, and not only the high achieving.
Circles in Maths, Nature and Everyday Life (Edinburgh Science Festival): 9th- 13th April 2022
In April 2022 we will contribute to the Edinburgh Science festival with a drop-in session taking place at the National Museum of Scotland. Our activities will explore the characteristics of the circle, and how such characteristics underpin various aspects of science, technology and everyday life, such as using a map or rolling a coin through a vending machine.
