Scottish Cross Country Event

At the very end of the Easter holidays, three of our Pupils:  Finlay and Liam from P6 and Robyn from P7 took part in the Scottish Country event in Kirkcaldy representing the school as a result of how well they performed in the Edinburgh events, earlier in the term.

All 3 pupils competed well, in a highly competitive field and we are extremely proud of their efforts.

Japan Painting Competition

Katie 1

Katie Alexander in P7 recently won a city wide competition.   The Japanese Consul told us “I am delighted to inform you that Katie Alexander has won 1st Prize in the P7 age category!  Katie’s wonderful picture, ‘The Sakura Scene’ will be exhibited at St Mary’s Cathedral (Palmerston Place, Edinburgh) on Saturday 6th May as part of Japan Children’s Day.”

Last Saturday Katie and her mum attended the ceremony where Katie was awarded a certificate  (presented by Consul General, Mr Daisuke Matsunag) a box of Japanese sweets and a copy of her painting, framed .

Great achievement Katie!

Senior Pupils run their socks off in cross country finals!

19 senior pupils from P6 & 7 represented our school very well this morning at Calvary Park playing fields.

In tricky weather conditions and with boggy ground underfoot, the boys and girls did very well to navigate their way around the 1.7km course.

We are very proud of all the children who behaved well, ran with pride and completed the course. Several of the children made the top 50 in the respective races which was a great achievement.

Thank you also to the mums and dads who braved the elements to cheer the children on and help us walk to and from the venue, your support is much appreciated.

Children’s Commissioner visits Assembly

We had a special guest at Friday’s assembly this week as Children’s commissioner, Tam Baillie joined us to tell us more about children’s rights. Tam was invited by Rowan Wallace in P7 who was keen to find out more about children’s rights and the role of the Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland and we are very grateful that Tam was able to find time in his busy schedule to visit our school today.
