Health Week April/May 2019

Another year of a very successful Health Week took place from 29th April to Friday 3rd May. During this week the children took part in a range of instructor-led physical activities such as: Rugby, Football, Hockey, Disability Sport, Bowls (P4-7), American Football (P4-7) and Kic Dance. Classes also carried out experiments to show the importance of good hand hygiene and how to stop the spread of germs. Furthermore teachers took the children through the St John’s Ambulance “Heartstart” programme. The week ended with our annual “Walk in the Glen”!

Oor Wullie Competition

We are delighted to announce that two talented pupils from our school are to have their winning designs featured in the Scotland-wide Oor Wullie BIG Bucket Trail Challenge!
The Oor Wullie BIG Bucket Trail is the first ever nationwide public art trail and will hit the streets of Scotland’s cities in the summer.
As the overall winner of the Scottish Citylink’s partnership competition P7 pupil Eva Young will see her Oor World flag design feature on the side of a Citylink coach. A miniature sculpture of her Oor Wullie will also be in Edinburgh Bus Station, as part of the trail from Monday 17 June.
Meanwhile, P7 pupil Ava McDonald’s Oor Learning design won the top prize within the school. It too will feature on the Edinburgh art trail.
A total of 70 schools in Scotland are being represented in the city trails along with other community organisations.
Well done girls!
