Carols on the Stairs

We held our traditional singalong of Christmas Carols on the last day of term.

All the lights are turned off, and we create our own light using torches-(they also help us read our song words!)

What a lovely way to start the Christmas holidays!

Winter Crafts

holly-leavesWe had a House Morning on Friday 4th December, where we worked together in our House Groups, using  sustainable materials to create winter crafts. Some were sold at our very successful PSA Christmas Cafe, but we had a sale on Monday 21st December in school of those left over from the Cafe.

We managed to raise £64.35! Thanks to all for your hard work creating the crafts, and to all those who bought something!

Our P7 pupils attended a day of workshops at Easter Road stadium. The theme of the day was “Show Racism the Red Card” and the workshops allowed the children to learn about different people’s experiences with racism, and ways to combat this in everyday life.

The children also were given a tour of the stadium, and had the opportunity to attend a press conference, quizzing current and ex-footballers on their experiences of racism. Everyone got a goody bag, and a few lucky pupils won prizes in a raffle, including a signed Hibs shirt!

Overall, a very worthwhile experience, with our P7s demonstrating good behaviour, manners and enthusiastic participation!
