If you have any spare items from the following list that you would be willing to donate on the 30th to this worthy cause that would be great, but please remember that this is optional.
P7 Lagganlia Trip
I can hardly believe it is a whole week since we returned from Lagganlia. The pupils and staff had a ball and sharing the experience with the pupils from Hillwood and Roseburn was a great success. Many parents have commented on Mr Shannon’s brilliant blogging throughout the week so we must thank him for his efforts, even though this almost always clashed with the pupils’ bed time!
Some quotes about the week:
“It was awesome and I made loads of new friends!” “I’ve had so much fun and I overcame my fears”
Even the staff overcame their fears, whether they were fears of midges or fears of very challenging crags to climb.
Maths Week Scotland 2017
Next week is ‘Maths Week Scotland’ and we will be launching this on Monday morning at our Gather Rounds. Classes will be taking part in lots of different activities and also contributing to a forthcoming display in the Gym Hall.
Profiles will be coming home on Monday to be shared with families. These will contain an overview of the learning for this term and also targets. Please share this with your children and return them to school by Friday.

A message from the Early Years Team:
Thank you to those who have already completed the survey. We have had 810 responses so far. However, we would like to get 2,000 responses so we would ask for your continued help in getting as many parents/carers as possible to complete the survey by the closing date on the 22nd of September.
Please respond using the link to the survey below
Last week we were informed by the Scottish Government that they are also doing a survey to consult with parents/carers about the increase to 1140 hours which unfortunately we hadn’t been aware about when we had sent our survey out.
