Label Your Clothes and Bring Appropriate Clothing

Image
Even unique style choices can get mixed up.

We’re only 3 days into term and we already have a mound of lovely, brand new, lost property building up.

Sadly lots of it is unlabelled so we can’t save you the trouble of searching and reunite it for you.

Please remember with uniform, and even without, many of the children have identical items of clothing so writing a name inside in permanent fabric marker, embroidering a name or sewing in a tag is vital.

Also please remember that a coat is vital every day with Edinburgh’s variable weather.

Proud of Scotland

Dalry Primary all united to watch Scotland on Monday and while the result wasn’t what we wanted the children were proud of seeing Sotland represented on the big stage.

They also got a mini pie and a mini pint (of fruit juice!) at half time.

Let’s hope Scotland can qualify still and good luck to all our families and staff supporting other teams in the tournament.
