Children in Need / Type Onesie Day thank you from Mrs Laird and Mrs Tate

Yet again, the compassion and support of the parents and local community at Currie Primary has astounded us. Every time we organise these type of events, we have a slight fear that we will not have enough cakes to sell, but we should have it written in stone that Currie Primary loves a bake sale! At the moment, the total amount raised on Friday is a fantastic £1,035.53, with £500 going to Type One Diabetes and the remainder to Children in Need. The children who get the school bus even had the AAA Coach drivers putting their hands in their pockets and driving the buses in onsies. Thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to bake and/or donate to these two very worthwhile charities.

Mrs Tate and Mrs Laird, P7

Children in Need and Type Onesie Day 2017

It was a really fun day in school today and we all learned a lot about the 2 charities we were supporting, Children in Need and JDRF! Thank you to everyone for taking part by wearing onesies and pyjamas to school and for donating the delicious home baking that was kindly sent in for P7s Bake Sale. We raised a staggering £1035.53 which we have split between the two charities. In assembly this morning we found out all about the history of Children in Need, Pudsey Bear and a little bit about how the money we raise is spent to make life better for children both here in Edinburgh and across the UK. A huge well done to Lewis and Elissa who spoke to our whole school about diabetes, how our pancreas makes insulin and how they work their pumps to control the insulin in their bodies. A lovely morning – well done everyone at Currie Primary School!

Edinburgh District Football Team Trials


This morning we went to Meggetland for the second round trials for the Edinburgh District Primary Schools football team. When we got there we went to the changing room and changed our boots and then we went out onto the grass pitch and got put into teams with different coloured bibs. The coaches wanted to know our name, school and position. We did a warm of different drills, such as 1 on 1, possession boxes, 4 v 4 small game and then we went into playing games. We got to play 3 games of 15-20 minutes. We played against each other and Jojo’s team won 2-0! Mack’s team lost just 1 game and Jojo’s team won 1 and drew 2 games. After that we got told we would find out on Thursday or Friday if we had made the team. There were 46 P7 pupils taking part in the trails from all across schools in Edinburgh. 20 of us will be picked for the team. We really enjoyed ourselves.
