Granton Campus

Any S4, S5, S6 pupil intending to make an application to college this year would benefit from attending this event. It will run all day until 6 pm. School had planned to take a group of pupils by bus but this is proving very difficult to organise given that the prelims are on . Pupils can therefore visit the college themselves at any time during that day  provided it is not when they have a prelim.  Please make their PSL aware so that they can amend their attendance.

Competition win!

Mary’s Meals

We managed to collect over 100 rucksacks with a lot of extra items that we will send on to Mary’s Meals. The S3 class carefully selected a bag and filled it with items they thought the children would love. The kids enjoyed sorting through the clothes to piece outfits together and even tried to match toothbrushes with toothpaste!!  It was lovely to see them take such care.

I wonder where the bags will end up??!
