Dalry Wins Prize for Robotics and Coding

On Monday our P6 roboteers (Adam, Shree and Fabio, with support from Mr Bennett and Kunal) took their place in the grand final of the Edinburgh schools robotics and coding competition – “Marty’s Coding Party”.

They won the technical achievement prize, bringing home a second Marty coding robot for the school and were the only primary in Edinburgh to gain an award in the contest, which was open to all primaries and secondaries.

Our award was given for coding quality and cleverness in engineering a new sensor system.

Here are our team being given their prize by the CEO of Robotical.

Robotical are the designers of Marty and co-sponsored the challenge along with CGI and Edinburgh Council.

Well done to Team Dalry!

Joseph Coelho Visit

Scottish Book Trust Schools Event with Joseph Coelho

Thursday 22nd February

Joseph Coelho will be in school to see children in from P4-P7.


Joseph is a performance poet and playwright who is “a fresh new voice in children’s poetry”. He works tirelessly to dispel the view that poetry is “boring” with his fun and exciting poetry.

Following the event Joseph will sign copies of his books. If your child already owns copies please get them to bring them along to be signed.

Your child can also buy copies of Joseph Coelho’s books on the day (see attached letter for prices).

Children are under no obligation to buy books but if you would like them to we are able to accept cash and cheques (please make them out to Scottish Book Trust).
