CHRISTMAS PARTY ARRANGEMENTS
On Tuesday 20th all children
will have lunch at 12.15 pm. This includes home pupils. This is to allow
us to set up the hall for Christmas parties. Thank you for your
Well done to everyone. We raised
£206 for CLIC and the African Children’s Choir. Thank you to everyone
who made the effort to get dressed up and to everyone who contributed.
SAFE, STRONG AND FREE
There will be series of Safe,
Strong and Free workshops for Nursery pupils and parents.
Some Primary 7 pupils visited the Salvation Army last week to
entertain the old folks. They had a very successful afternoon and
Captain Sayer passed on his thanks.
By now all parents should have
received information regarding the 0870 number to be used if you think
the school may be closed due to adverse weather. We still have not had
all the return slips. If you have lost/misplaced/don’t think you
received on, please contact the school office immediately to arrange for
a replacement. It is essential parents have this information available
CHRISTMAS RAFFLE/CHRISTMAS SHOW
The Christmas Show and Raffle
raised a total of £950. This will go towards the cost of the new stage
lights which unfortunately did not arrive in time for this year’s show.
P6 ENTERPRISE PROJECT/LUCKY PROGRAMME
Primary 6 raised £55 from their
sale of lucky programmes as a result of their enterprise project. This
money will go to Dunbar Hospital for their refurbishment works.
