The NHS have seen a large number of respiratory outbreaks in nurseries and schools in the past few weeks. These have caused service disruption with staff shortages and many pupils being absent from school/nursery.
The main symptoms being reported include:
– Sore throat
– Muscle aches
– Sore tummy
– Cold/Flu like symptoms
These symptoms are consistent with respiratory viral illnesses such as the common cold, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and influenza.
Respiratory viruses are spread by breathing in droplets produced when a person coughs or sneezes. You can also catch the virus by touching the surfaces that the droplets have landed on if you pick up the virus on your hands and then touch your nose or mouth.
The main focus of this unit is the importance of relationships and the contribution other people make to our well-being. Our sense of security and belonging is helped when we understand that we are part of a network of people who are special to us.
Unit 2 – Keep Connected key messages
1. Relationships are important for our health and well-being
2. Belonging to a group can be a good way of building friendships
Our Junior Road Safety Officers, Kiara McGhee and Malcolm Douglas, met with the Parent and Carer Forum and PC Tony Lawrence to talk about safety on the roads around our school. Everyone agreed that they were worried by so many cars coming into Muirhouse Place West between 8.30am amd 9.00am.

They decided that we would have a focus on parking responsibly near schools. The JRSOs ran a competition in the primary to design a poster to ask visitors, parents and carers not to park at the school gates and to think about parking in Muirhouse Avenue. This would cut down on traffic and and be only a short walk to the school.

The police are going to help with our campaign and officers will be around to talk to drivers about parking with care near to schools.

No one wants to see someone get injured so it is important that everyone thinks about their driving and parking near our school.

There were eight designs chosen to re inforce the Safe Parking message. These are displayed outside our school and are here for you to see too.

We think you will agree that the ideas are really good and we hope that their messages will be followed!
On Wednesday 12th October 2016, the Scottish Cup visited Craigroyston Primary. It was part of the Persevere Tour and we were delighted to be part of this exciting programme.
We heard how the Hibernian Football Club hadn’t given up in their quest to be holders of the oldest trophy in the world! It took 114 years for them to achieve their goal but in May this year they won the cup -A real story of perseverence.
All of the classes had their photograph taken with the trophy. If we have your permission to have your child’s picture on a website, you can see all the photos on the Hibs’ website.
