Sciennes Sport Relief Be Kind to Others 23.3.18


Published on

On Friday 23rd February P7 pupils again led everyone in the 'Step It Up' Sport Relief song with everyone in the Hall joining in the dance. P7 Sports Captains led Assembly by thanking those who had dressed up and purchased wrist bands and explaining why we were fundraising and how the money would be used in the UK and abroad. P7 pupils Emily, Eilidh and friends announced they raised a fabulous £150 last Friday with their Sport Relief Bake Sale, completely selling out of a huge array of home baking within twenty minutes. Thank you to P7 pupils who have been selling wrist bands over the last few weeks and P7 Louis announced that an amazing £274 had been raised!

P7 Isaac and his brother Reuben continue with their 'Marathon in a Month' campaign and we are fortunate to have made contact, with their mum's help, with representatives from Asthma UK who will visit school next term to celebrate the boys' achievement and raise awareness of asthma.

Sports Captain Eilidh presented Cross Country certificates to P6 pupils (with P7 certificates to follow) and Louis congratulated P6 Dylan on 4th place and P7 Sam on his Bronze medal in the Lothian Schools Cross Country League. Grateful thanks to Mrs Kitchen and all the families who have supported P6 and P7 participation throughout the year.

P6 pupils Rory, Isla, Ella and Evie thanked everyone for the tremendous generosity of families in donating Easter eggs to their Foodbank appeal. The big count took place at the end of the day and is in excess of 300 eggs!

Three of our ECO Reps, P7 pupils Alejandro, Camille and Rachel told everyone about Earth Hour on Saturday 24th March 8.30pm-9.30pm and encouraged pupils to take part in switching off lights during the hour. They also explained ways we can live more sustainably, beyond Earth Hour, including walking and cycling to school.

What a truly wonderful Cycle to School event this morning, in honour of our truly wonderful Business Manager Ms Angela Christie who retires next week. Thank you to all the secret organisers who managed to keep it a complete surprise and to the spectacular masses of parents, pupils and staff who turned out in force to meet at King's Buildings at 8.15am and escort her in style en route to school. Ms Christie has been fundamental in Sciennes' Active Travel movement, providing innovative cycle training programmes for all age groups over many years and developing generations of cyclists. It was a perfect tribute and show of respect and thanks to truly remarkable, inspirational and much loved Angela.

Next week, Mrs Noble will lead a whole school Easter Assembly on Thursday 29th March at 1.30pm and we will be joined by Stuart Irvin, Minister at St Catherine of Argyll's Church. In preparation, P4-7 pupils practised the 'Spring Chicken' song.

Term ends next week at 3.20pm on THURSDAY 29th March and all resume on TUESDAY 17th April.
