Dalry Days 2018/19

Another Dalry year is done.

We had silly days,

Brighter days,

Communication struggle days,

Calm days,

showing our outside achievements days,

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,



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.

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.

P5 John Muir Award Assembly

P5 has been working hard all year towards their Discovery level John Muir Award.  Pupils have to discover and explore a wild place.  We visited Corstorphine Hill on a number of days during the year.  They had to help with a conservation activity and for this the class helped sow a wildflower meadow in Murieston Park which will come into flower in July or August – feel free to visit!  Finally the had to share their learning with others.  The class has had a lot of fun and led an assembly on 10th June to share what they had done.  Well done all!

Dalry Primary Sports Day 2019

The whole school managed to enjoy Sports Day in the playground this morning before the rain started!

A huge thanks to Mr Devine who had everything organised for Sports Day at Tynecastle High School, and adjusted his plans in light of the yellow weather warning for rain. He did a brilliant job of reorganising the potted sports stations in a much smaller space. Thank you to the P7s who helped with the lower school activities. A huge thanks to all staff who adjusted (or gave up their breaks) to allow this to happen in such a tight timescale.
