WOW! WHAT A YEAR!
This video captures just a glimpse of another busy year at Sciennes Primary School.
Well done to all our pupils, staff and families for working so hard and so well together throughout 2016-2017, “in all the good times and in all the bad times.”
Happy 125th Birthday, Sciennes!
Once a year we all come together in the Hall – twenty two classes from Primary 1 to Primary 7 – for our End of Year Assembly, led by Headteacher Mrs Alison Noble. We were delighted to welcome Parent Council representatives: outgoing Co-Convenor of Fundraising and Events (EFG), Aileen Nimmo and new Chair of EFG, Jayamthi Sanahanam. Mrs Noble thanked them both, and also Phoebe Cochrane (Chair of Parent Council) and Tim Pask (Vice Chair of Parent Council, for the huge contribution they have made to the school throughout the year, particularly in creating opportunities to WOW our pupils with the World of Work Summer Fair. Phoebe and Tim will continue in their posts as Chair and Vice Chair of the Parent Council in August.
Mrs Noble led everyone in our fond farewells to staff and pupils who are moving on.

We wished fond farewell to our wonderful Primary Sevens, very proud of their confidence and readiness for the next steps to secondary school and beyond. Mr Howie provided an end of term treat with a video of staff dancing to The Soupdragons “I’m Free.” P7 sang the finale song from their show beautifully and it was a joy to see them dance a conga together in the Hall at the end of Assembly.

|Mr Howie created a funny video of staff dancing to “I’m Free’ by the Soupdragons as an end of term treat for our wonderful P7s. Publishing our end of term staff videos makes it less likely the will join in, so below is the next best thing…|
Wishing all our families a safe, happy and relaxing holiday. We look forward to welcoming pupils back to Sciennes on WEDNESDAY 16th AUGUST.
