On Monday 23rd April 2018 we held a House Assembly for each of our four Houses – Grange, Lauder, Sienna and Tantallon. P7 House and Sports Captains introduced our new Values which staff and the Pupil Council have been working on this year with Olivia’s mum Emma Kirk, who chairs the Parent Council Communications Group. P7 Captains explained what they felt each Value meant to them and invited everyone to think about that as well.
Captains also explained their role in supporting the P1-4 Swimathon event and designing and leading the new P5-7 Meadows Mayhem school fundraising event, both taking place this week. Sponsorship for both events is online through BT MyDonate.
We sang the SHANARRI song and encouraged everyone to keep getting involved in the Year of Young People, particularly at our forthcoming Summer Fair on Saturday 26th May 12.30pm-3.00pm.
We showed a very special video by our Pupil Support Assistants created in tribute to the wonderful Angela Christie who truly believed and truly achieved in all she undertook at Sciennes. Although officially retired, Angela is back in school this week helping as usual with the school fundraising events.
We hope that Ms Christie will join the Cycle to School Day on Friday 27th April with EdFOC, leaving King’s Buildings at 8.15am. Thank you very Ms McGrouther for taking the baton from Angela.
