Before the half term holidays Dalry Primary was experiencing election fever as the annual vote to choose our Clan Chiefs and Deputes arrived.
In the weeks before polling day the candidates wrote and performed amazing video hustings speeches and produced brilliant campaign posters. Many staff commented that this election was the hardest and most passionately fought in their time at Dalry. Each morning before school and at break and lunch candidates were seen canvassing for support and waving banners.
Dalry democracy has never been healthier.
Our election day results were announced by Mr Linton and P6 who put on a brilliant election day special assembly teams call.
It was only last week that Mrs Honeyman was able to present the successful candidates with their official badges of office. So now that they have their proper accoutrements of office let us present the Chiefs and Deputes for 2021-22
Congratulations to all our great candidates successful and unsuccessful.

Some of our newly selected climate reps in P6 and P7 attended the first Edinburgh Primaries Youth Climate Summit online this week.
They discussed all the things we are doing at Dalry to be more sustainable, including recycling, learning about the environment, litter reduction and most of all our current project to grow food at the school supported by Love Gorgie Farm.
They also expressed their hopes for things that could change in school. One was that they would love to see a green electricity source, like wind or solar power installed. Another was that there be more recycling in the playground. One of the other schools pointed out that tetrapacks (especially milk and water cartons) are not always put in the recycling by the children and that tap water as an alternative would be even better.
Lots of great ideas from the children involved that will be carried forward and discussed by the council’s education team.
