Dear Parent and Carers,
Thank you for all your support this term for our various events. These have been well supported and it has been good to see so many parents and carers in school.
Events this term have been:
Fastworks Family Literacy Bedtime Stories
Book Fair World Book Day Consultation Meetings
Assemblies ICT to enhance learning P3 Numeracy Project
Our latest event organised by the PCA, was the fundraising Spring into Craigroyston. This again was well supported with many of the children and parents taking part. A total of £543.25 was raised during the morning. A huge thank you to the PCA for all their hard work in raising these funds to support our children.
I am very conscious that this term parents and carers have been asked to support the school by spending cash. The parents and carers of this school are very generous of their support, their time and their money.
I know too, that the school community is a very thoughtful group and is keen to support many causes.
This Friday is Red Nose Day. Again parents and carers have been incredibly generous and have raised £250 from the sale of Red Noses. On Friday we will support Red Nose Day by having an assembly. At the assembly we will learn more about sharing and helping others. The children can wear their Red Noses or something red for the day. Please do not buy anything “special” for the children to bring / wear on Friday. They do not need any money.
You have spent over £2000 buying books, raising funds, buying noses…
Thank you again for all your generosity this term. You have been amazing.
Congratulations to Elham Najib P3 for her fabulous drawing which has been selected to be printed onto a window and hung in East Princess Street Gardens. This will be part of Edinburgh’s Christmas decorations and will be viewed by thousands of visitors to our city.
There were entries from primary, special and secondary schools in Edinburgh. Only twenty five were selected to be part of this special display.
Elham and her family have been invited to attend the launch event on Friday 25th November at the National Gallery of Scotland on the Mound.
There will be refreshments in the IT Gallery followed by a presentation in the Hawthornden Lecture Theatre and then a walk around the Winter Windows themselves including a photo shoot.
Well done Elham Najib P3
As part of the Nationwide Children in Need appeal the children have asked to take part in some fund raising. Our House Captains and Vice Captains are selling wristbands at a cost of £1 each.
The children can if they wish on Friday wear something spotty or brightly coloured and make a donation to the cause.
The School Photographer will be visiting on Monday 21st November.
As our roll has increased, sadly we are only able to offer photographs to children currently in our Nursery to P7.
