New addition to the growing area

New addition to the growing area, not Donna and Caroline. We hope the school kids will enjoy the new vehicle that has been added. A wee bit weeding done ready for some planting during the outdoor class room day. We had a wee bit vandalism but hopefully everyone will look after our new creation. Thank you Grandad Forbes, the Eco girls are hoping to get a new bin added soon after their bake sale.


The Wellie Garden Grows

P6 Eco girls teach groups of P1 children about planting in the quad. Once they have finished it is going to be one big wellie garden. If have any old kids wellies you would like to donate to our garden please hand them into the school office.


Eco Group Erect New Signs

Eco Group Bella, Iona, Milly & Eve are working on improving the school growing area even more. Children from each year group designed a sign last academic year and these signs are the first to be put up. The Eco Groups have decided to erect their new signs in stages because our last signage was vandalised.


Digital Records Unit at National Records of Scotland – Team Building Day

Huge thanks goes to Jenny Hunt for bringing volunteers (they were Jenny herself, Susan, Craig and Barbara) from the Digital Records Unit at National Records of Scotland, who had a team building day working in the Quad. They made massive improvements over the summer holidays including: clearing out all the old bark and replacing it with new bark, removing the seesaw, adding a bug hotel and weeding the P1-3 planters.

Caroline, Donna & Charlotte helped and an extra special thanks goes to Emil as and extra day of grafting was required. Becky and her son painted & refilled the boat sandpit and feedback from the teachers is very positive – they love it.


Tesco Bag Packers

Thank you to Tescos in Leith and their very generous customers. We made an amazing £434 on Friday 21st July from 10-2pm. The pupils and parents who made it along during the summer holidays had a great time too. We look forward to buying a replacement train or similar for our quad. 

Thanks again to Tesco in Leith for this fantastic opportunity and we encourage all our parents to support them.
