P7 Leavers Assembly 2019

On Monday our P7s prepared to leave Dalry by putting on a brilliant leaver’s assembly.

Themed around a spoof “Dalry’s Got Talent” contest the leavers had an audience of pupils, parents and our army of school volunteers and helpers. The show also featured a lively Macarena.

The assembly also featured award presentations which we will cover in full in other posts in our news section.

Well done to P7, and Mrs Laidler and Mrs Ewan, on a great farewell. Good luck in all your future learning and growing P7.

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.


 Some of our pupils from P6 and P7 recently competed at the interscholastic’s competition at George Watson’s.
All 19 participants  did a brilliant job in their heats!
Daria from P7 made it to the final of the cricket ball throw and came 4th overall.
Matthew from P6 got through to the 80m semi-final and came 4th overall.
