On Friday 16th March we got ‘reddy’ for Sport Relief 2018, continuing our focus on “Be Kind to Others” from City of Edinburgh’s “Be Resilient’ Health and Wellbeing programme.
We watched two video clips showing how money raised has been used abroad and in the UK and sang the ‘Step It Up” song. P7s led at the front to demonstrate dance moves and encourage everyone to sing along.
P7 Sports Captains have been selling Sport Relief wrist bands for £1 and on Friday 23rd March pupils can wear red or sports clothes and bring a donation if they wish. P7 Emily and her friends have arranged a Bake Sale for 12pm Friday 16th March in aid of Sport Relief.
P7 Isaac gave an update on his ‘Marathon in a Month’ for Asthma UK with brother Reuben. P7 pupils Niamh, Alice, Stella and Margret shared their idea to help a new P6 group carry on their gender equality projects next year and have designed their own application forms. P6 pupils Rory, Isla, Ella and Evie reminded everyone about their Easter Egg Foodbank appeal which closes on Friday 23rd March and they will man stalls at both Parent Consultation Evenings.
What a wonderful P4/5 disco and many thanks to families and staff who came along to support.
P7 Captains congratulated P7 Lucy on her Grade 4 Musical Theatre certificate, P6 William on his First Place at the recent Edinburgh Music Competition Festival and P6 Machlan on becoming SCOTTISH boxing champion!
Hannah in P6 gave a stunning performance of Tam O’Shanter which won her the Steven Lui Cup 2018 for Burns Recitation. There were six extremely strong P6 Finalists this year and congratulations to all who took part.
