Spooky days,

Upside down days,

Every day, day in and day out, days,

Christmas days,

Best in Edinburgh days,

Bouncy days

Responsible days,

Poetry in motion days,

Geeky days,

Cakey Days,

Holidays,

 

Sporty days

Lucky days

Creative days,

Everything under control days,

Wellie days,

Recognition days

and last days,

but they were all Dalry days.

 

Sport Stars Assembly

Mr D. ran one of the most anticipated assemblies of the year today.

The Dalry SPorts day and PE Star awards.

The winning teams from the lower and upper school were first up for their medals.

They were followed by Mr D’s PE Stars. Mr D. chooses his PE stars based on who has shown the most effort and determination in PE rather than simply those with the best results. PBs and PMA are first in Dalry PE.

Scottish Government Parent Survey

It’s nearly the summer holidays but there is one more piece of homework. The children will be glad though, to hear that this homework is for Dalry parents and guardians.

The Scottish Government would like to hear your views on your child’s school. Below is the link to the primary school survey.

The closing date is August 12th. Many thanks for taking the time to fill this in and for your support throughout the year. You all help us make the school the success it is.

Jim Douglas Citizenship Award 2019

A new award was presented at leavers assembly this year.

Created by the family of Jim Douglas, a former Dalry pupil who left Edinburgh to become a leading publisher in Canada, the award celebrates outstanding contribution to the school from a pupil in P5-7 who has embodied our school values:

Together we are respectful, included, responsible and kind.

The inaugural recipient was Aoife in P6.

Well done Aoife!

P6 Camp 2019

Primary 6 had a fantastic time at their recent camp!

We were so lucky to experience so many different activities including wall climbing, crate stacking, archery and making fires!

Everyone did a fantastic job of supporting each other to challenge themselves and face their fears. Day 2 was very wet and muddy but it didn’t stop us having fun, in fact we decided to embrace it by jumping in the mud puddles and have rolly polly races down the hill, it was great fun! If only we could do it all again!

Building Resilience Sharing Assembly- Make a Difference

Mrs Mason and Mrs Honeyman got that warn fuzzy feeling as we listened to all the ways in which our children and families have made a difference as part of this terms Building Resilience learning.

Some of the ways they have made a difference include helping out at home, litter picking, planting a wildflower meadow, raising money for charity, building a bug hotel, recycling clothes and toys, looking after baby siblings and  writing a rap of ways to save the planet.

We also learned about the way that the staff team have made a difference by running the Edinburgh Marathon in three relay teams. They raised over £800  for Barnardos and Richmond Hope. Both of these charities work with children in our school and make a real difference to their lives.
