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.
