On Friday 9th March we continued with our 'Be Kind to Others' topic from City of Edinburgh's Health and Wellbeing 'Be Resilient' programme. Pupils from P4 and P6 shared their learning on the topic and gave examples of acts of kindness.

We welcomed Austrian Primary Education students Elisabeth and Daniela and bade fond farewell to Erasmus French teaching student Elodie (from Lyons) and Erasmus Spanish trainee teacher Adriano (from Madrid University) thanking them for all their tremendous support at school.

Our P7 House and Sports Captains have been busily working for several weeks with the Fiona Denvir, Bethan McEwan and Cathy McCormack from the Parent Council to redesign and plan our annual school fundraising events. P7 Captains Flora, Caspar and James introduced their new logo and explained their ideas for P1-4 to continue to take part in a Swimathon, while P5-P7 will take part in a new 'Meadows Mayhem' obstacle course.

P7 pupil Isaac updated us on his 'Marathon in a Month' campaign with brother Reuben to raise awareness and funds for Asthma UK and explained how others can take part, to raise funds for Asthma UK, or for Sport Relief or simply just to participate.

Emily and friends in P7 told everyone about their Sport Relief Bake Sale on Friday 16th March at 12pm in the playground and P7 Sports Captains will continue to sell wristbands for £1.

Alice, Niamh and Margret talked about International Women's Day and updated everyone on their P1 and P2 survey about gender equality. P2 pupils and Girl Guides Penny and Catriona were congratulated on their launch of the Citizen Girl campaign.

P6 pupils Rory, Isla, Ellie and Evie promoted their annual Easter Egg Foodbank Appeal running from 12th - 23rd March. There will be an opportunity to donate eggs at Parent Consultations on Tuesday 20th and Thursday 22nd March.

What a wonderful P6/7 Disco!

P6/7 Cross Country were congratulated on their participation in the recent EPSSA event at the Meadows where P6 Anna and P6 Dylan both received a 4th place medal.

Huge congratulations to Sean, Evie, Katharine and Tomos on their outstanding success at the recent Edinburgh Semi Final of Euroquiz, as Runners Up, only one point behind eventual winners Stewart Melville's after an unprecedented TWO tie breaking sudden death rounds. Congratulations to Stewart Melville's who will now progress to the Final at Parliament.
