Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome back to our final term of the school year. It was so lovely to see our playground full this morning with parents, carers and children – hopefully the days of lining up on the pavement are gone. Our P7s headed to Benmore Outdoor Centre, waved off enthusiastically by their P2 buddies, and our P6s headed to Midlothian ski centre for skiing and outdoor learning. Their excitement was infectious. It really does feel like we are finally at the ‘end of the tunnel’ and we can really see our school community fully back and together. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Open Morning on Fri May 6th and to our playground tidy on Sun May 8th.
The term ahead promises to be a busy one. Our whole school focus will centre around the theme of Coast to Coast so please do ask your children what they are learning.

I will be joining P7 at Benmore this week so will have limited access to email. School can be contacted using email@example.com.
Please do remember that, for this term, our school kitchen will be being refurbished and school lunches will be a packed lunch. Today went very smoothly and there was very limited food waste which was very encouraging.
I hope the term proves to be a very successful and happy one for us all.
