Sciennes Easter Assembly March 2018


Published on

On Thursday 29th March, Headteacher Mrs Alison Noble led the whole school Easter Assembly. Mrs Ruth McVicker played the Sciennes School Song, and it was lovely to be joined by recently retired co-composer Mrs Claire Ford. Stuart Irvin joined us from St Catherine's of Argyll and retold the Easter story. Congratulations to P6 pupils Rory, Isla, Ella and Evie who collected an amazing 310 Easter eggs in their Foodbank Appeal.

Mrs Noble then wished staff well, first thanking Edinburgh University Volunteer Language students Lucas and Tycho for their support this term to classes in Spanish and French and then passing on all our best wishes to Miss Kirsty Gallagher who is getting married in the Easter holidays, to Mrs Emma Kidd who is expecting her new baby soon and to Ms Chantelle Hall who is heading off on new adventures in London.

Mrs Jennie Waters has been an outstanding, devoted and much loved teacher at Sciennes for fourteen years and Mrs Noble spoke for everyone in thanking her sincerely and wishing her well in her new post at Dunbar Primary School. She will be sorely missed but hope she will keep in touch with all her friends at Sciennes.

The special whole school Assembly also marked the retirement of our incomparable and dynamic Business Manager, Ms Angela Christie, who has worked tirelessly throughout her career at Sciennes to provide the best possible experiences and learning for generations of our pupils. Her talents and capabilities are countless and the impact she has had at Sciennes is staggering.

A former Sciennes parent herself, Ms Christie has always worked indefatigably in close partnership with the Friends of Sciennes School Charity Trust and all the many Parent Council subgroups over many years. We were joined at the Assembly by several parent representatives, including Sue Lewis, Emma Kirk and Phoebe Cochrane who presented her with a gift and a banner of messages made in secret by all the pupils.

Mrs Noble and pupil Oscar presented Ms Christie with a beautiful floorbook which Ms Anstruther had arranged to be filled with lovely and creative messages from each class in school. Mrs Noble celebrated some of Ms Christie's outstanding achievements: arranging innovative cycling programmes for P1-P7, promoting sustainability, Active Travel and Spanish, introducing online payments, driving improvements in digital learning, championing outdoor learning and our wonderful playground and ever striving to light the flame of learning in all she does. And all this on top of and far beyond her Business Manager remit, where she also excels! Truly, a Sciennes Legend and thoroughly deserving of now being able to timetable some time for herself. We wish Angela a very happy retirement, with deep love and grateful respect.

After School News, the whole school sang the 'Spring Chicken' song and Mrs Noble wished all our families a safe and happy Easter holiday. School resumes on TUESDAY 17th April.
