Bonnes vacances!

Our expression de la semaine this week is, of course, ‘Bonnes vacances’ which means good holidays! It seems to have been a very fast year in school and it is hard to believe it is now the summer holidays! On behalf of all the staff in school we would like to thank all of our families and carers for the support you have given once more us over the year and we wish you all a bonnes vacances!

Sal’s Shoes

Thank you to everyone who left their shoes behind at the end of the day today for our Sal’s Shoes collection. There were so many pairs left and it is so good to think they are going  to someone who needs them. Many children braved the wet miserable weather and left school bare footed so well done to everyone who did this.
A huge thank you to Mrs Lumsdaine who has taken the shoes away and will arrange delivery to the Sal’s Shoes depot over the summer

Once Upon A Dream

A number of children in our school have had poems they have written this year published in a book called ‘Once Upon A Dream’, which is a book of poems written by children from across the East of Scotland. We were delighted that one of our pupils, Bethany Erskine’s poem was chosen as the best poem in the book and has been used as the opening poem. We thought you might all like to read Bethany’s poem so here it is.

Lost

As I clamber into the warmth of my bed

And sink into its snug confines

My head comes to rest onto my comfy pillow

And suddenly everything goes black…

 

I am lost in a magical paradise

As I stare at the sky

The stars are as bright as the sun as they twinkle

Colours clash like swords in a fight for life and death

 

I see a vast forest emitting a wonderful glow

Intrigues, I move towards it and wander into the green ahead

I hear the gush of water in the distance

As I gaze upon a pool of gleaming water it plays a soft, sweet melody to me

Nearby, an angry waterfall rages, sending the rapids in every direction
White froth forms near me in clumps like stepping stones

I try to step, but missed and fall into the refreshing cool,

It carries me along and through the majestic waterfall and into a large cavern.

 

Treasure lies in colossal piles in almost every available space

As I walk towards them, enchanted…

And then, an emerald dragon awakens from his deep slumber,

It rears u [as it spots me and I close my eyes in dread.

 

I sit up sharply, safe in my bed,

Then I lie back down and rest my head,

Ring! Ring! My alarm clock sounds,

It’s morning now so off I bound.

Staff up-date

It is with very mixed feelings we let everyone know that Mrs Jack will be leaving school next term as she is being seconded to Gilmerton Primary School as Principal Teacher for 23 months. Mrs Jack will return to school at the start of next term until we appoint someone to take over her post here at Currie Primary School. We will all miss Mrs Jack as she is a very valuable member of our team but we know she will do a fantastic job in her new role as PT.
