Welcome to The Royal High Primary School Website
INFORMATION – Thursday 29th September 2016
Harvest Thanksgiving Assembly – Thursday 13th October 2016 at 9.30 a.m.
We will be holding our Harvest Assembly on Thursday 13th October 2016 at 9.30 a.m. in the school hall.
You will be aware that the Harvest Assembly at the Royal High School has contributed and donated to a varied number of worthy good causes in recent years.
This year we have decided to donate items of non-perishable foodstuffs and toiletries to the Edinburgh North East Foodbank. This is a local charity providing for local people. In the present climate of fiscal and financial austerity, many families are required to use the foodbank occasionally.
The Edinburgh North East Foodbank operates from South Leith Parish Church and is led by Rev. Iain May. He is keen to receive donations of food and hygiene items. I have invited Rev. May to our assembly and I am hopeful he can attend.
Please note the following information:
- We will accept any non-perishable foods to include tins, cartons, packets/sachets, dried foods etc. More specifically, tinned meats (ham, corned beef, hot dogs) and tinned fruit would be particularly gladly received.
- Hygiene items to include shampoo, soap, shower gel, toothpaste etc would also be very much appreciated.
- We cannot accept any perishable foods, for example fresh fruit and vegetables, bread etc.
- Please donate foods/items in a strong carrier bag. The bag should not exceed 7 items.
- We will start collecting from Monday 3rd October 2016 until no later than Wednesday 12th October 2016. Children should give their donations to their class teachers. Please ensure donations have not passed the ‘use by’ date.
- Please note that we are only looking for spare/surplus items you may have in your cupboards. Please do not go to any trouble to buy specific items.
- DO NOT PURCHASE ANY ITEMS.
Parents are welcome to attend and join us for this Harvest celebration. To assist us in our planning I require to know how many adults will be attending the Harvest Assembly. Please download this letter to enable you to complete and return the tear off slip to your oldest child’s class teacher.
Thank you for your continued help and support.

As an ECO school we are delighted to have gained four Green Flags and you can see one flying proudly in front of the school. We have a strong commitment to our environment and are currently working on achieving our fifth Green Flag.
