Active Schools have new camps running at Forrester from 5th July for 5 weeks. They are reduced cost of £30 for the week or free for anyone who receives Free School Meals
Swimming is limited places for 4 weeks – all FREE but they must be in CURRENT primary 4-7 and CANNOT swim or are VERY WEAK swimmers. No younger pupils at this stage due to COVID. Fill in the form and Shona will let those that are successful know on Monday afternoon that they have a place (it is not guaranteed that if you fill in the form they get a place).
Our Jim Douglas Citizenship award had joint winners 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 staff vote resulted in Lucy and Sam receiving exactly the same amount of votes. Mrs Honeyman and Miss Kelly decided that rather than attempt to break the deadlock with a runoff both should win the award.
Congratulations Sam and Lucy!

There was great excitement in P5/6 as an alien space craft appeared to have crash-landed in the school playground! Pupils were thrilled to investigate the crash site and we generated some amazing ideas for our Space IDL topic and our creative writing.
Continuing the outdoor theme, we had great fun working in teams to track down fun facts about space during our Space Scavenger Hunt.
