You Are Cordially Invited to Tynecastle Burns Supper…

Tynecastle parent and carer council warmly invites everyone to our annual Burns’ Night celebration on Friday 24th January from 7pm-10.30pm.

The Burns Supper is a big part of our annual fundraising calendar. We have musical performances from our Pipe Band, musicians and Highland Dancers plus some poetry and traditional speeches from staff and senior pupils, before some delicious food and then ceilidh dancing. It’s a fantastic night.

We are especially keen to welcome those who have never been to a Burns’ Night before!

Tickets will be available from the school office or by registering on the link below, for a suggested donation of £5 per adult or £1 for students/children.


If you want to donate raffle prizes please drop them off at the school or bring them on the night.”

Lion King Ticket Donation

Last Thursday Mrs Honeyman received a very exciting phone call at Dalry Primary to tell us that 100 tickets to last night’s performance of The Lion King at Edinburgh Playhouse.

These were distributed to some of the families in our school community who took the opportunity to attend the show that night.

Everybody who went really enjoyed the Lions as well as the amazing puppetry of animals from mice to elephants and the special effects, scenery and amazing lighting design.

Thank you to cast and crew of The Lion King for giving so many a chance to experience theatre.

We had lots of fun, dancing, playing games, a piano recital from Jan’s daddy  AND we all got a present from Santa too! Then we all went back to the nursery and had lovely food and a raffle with lots of fabulous prizes – thank you to Mrs Brown for organising this. We hope you all enjoyed the event and we wish you all Happy Christmas and New Year- love from all the staff at the nursery.
