Thursday 3rd March was World Book Day. As usual, we entered into the spirit of the day, and there were so many amazing costumes showing characters from our favourite books. As well as dressing up, we gave out World Book Day vouchers, which can be used at the visiting Book Fair next week. There were also a range of reading and literacy activites across the school to mark the day. Well done to all!

Sporting Events

Our P7 Basketball team took part in the Edinburgh Schools Basketball Finals at Meadowbank Stadium on Monday 7th March. Although we didn’t win, we played well in 3 hard fought matches. Just getting to the final means we are in the top 8 basketball teams in the city! A great achievement!

Mrs Ramm will be taking our Cross Country team to the annual Edinburgh Schools event on Monday 14th March, and Mr Borthwick will be taking our Swimming team to the annual Edinburgh Schools Gala at the Commonwealth Pool on Wednesday 23rd March. Good luck to both teams, results and pictures to follow!

Euro Quiz


On Wednesday 2nd March , a team of P6a pupils represented the school at the Edinburgh Schools heat of the Euro Quiz, held at the City Chambers.

There were around 20 schools there, all fighting it out to be the one school to represent all Edinburgh schools at the national Euro Quiz final in May.

Our team members were Katie Telford, Ruth Adler, Katherine Donn and Maya Davidson, and they worked really hard preparing for the event.

Although they didn’t win, they answered the tricky questions well, and most importantly, had fun!

They also earned 15 house points each for their hard work and committment!

Well done girls!
