School Grounds Saturday Surgery – Saturday, 19th March 2016

Each year PHS Eco Committee host a School Grounds Saturday Surgery to help maintain the biodiversity garden and other green areas in the school grounds. This year, we’re asking parents to help us work on the flowerbeds, bark paths and the sensory garden, please!

The surgery will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, 19th March 2016, in the biodiversity garden (accessible from the East entrance to the school).

Eco Committee volunteers will provide free tea / coffee and bacon / veggie butties to parents who come along. We have some gloves, large forks and spades but please bring along other tools or your own gear if preferred!

Please let me know at if you are able to attend. Looking forward to working with our school community to make the school grounds greener and more pleasant for our pupils!

Primary 5 at The Royal High Primary School received this email to great excitement yesterday! We are the only school in Edinburgh to progress through to the online voting stage of this competition. As a class we would really appreciate if you could visit this site and read the wonderful article we entered. The prize is a 3 day visit to Orkney!

“I am very pleased to let you know that The Royal High Primary School’s entry into the Legion Scotland Stories Of the Sea Competition has made it into our final stages and is online for the public to vote for their favourite!

You can vote for your school or favourite entry on our website:

Please note each computer can only vote online once – to vote again on that computer an incognito tab must be opened. This is to try and make sure that the votes are fairly collected.

Voting closes on 21st March so please do spread the word and encourage as many votes for your school as possible!”

Thank you for taking the time to read and choose one you enjoyed.
