Primary 6 are starting work on the John Muir Award and we would really like to achieve this with your help. In order to gain the award, we are going to conserve our playground. We hope to make it a lot better by taking the mess away and improving it. Some of our ideas include: painting benches, digging a pond and making dens out of willow.
It would be great if you had any donations of the following:
- Lego bricks
- Gardening tools and gardening gloves
- Large stones
- Old tyres
- 2 litre empty plastic bottles (loads)
- Plant/flower seeds
- Plant pots
- Or anything else you have that you think might be useful!
We are also really keen to have some adult help. If you are an experienced gardener, painter, really crafty or just really keen, then PLEASE come and help us. You could let us know if you’re interested in helping by contacting the school via the admin email address and a P6 will get in touch with you.
We are really excited about this project and we look forward to hopefully receiving some donations.

P6 recently entered a poetry competition run by Young Writers, and we have just found out that a number of their poems have been selected for publication!
The pupils had to write a poem in the style if their choice, based on the theme “dreams”. The winning poems will be printed in a book titled Once Upon A Dream – The East Of Scotland, scheduled to be published on June 30th.
Well done, P6!
Here are a few of the beautiful and imaginative Easter / Spring Bonnets in school yesterday! Everyone looked amazing!
We hope everyone enjoys the holidays and we look forward to welcoming everyone back on Tuesday 18 April 2017.
Thank you to everyone who has been dropping the blue voting tokens from Tesco into our box in Edinburgh over the last 4 weeks. The voting continues until the 29th of April 2017 so please keep voting for us! Although we appear to be in the lead in the Tesco at Hermiston Gait, we are not winning in all the other boxes in Tesco stores around the city so every token counts!
Our House Captains organised our first ever House Quiz for everyone this week which was great fun. We had 2 quizzes the first for P1 – P3 and the second P4-P7. There were 10 rounds including music, books, sports and hobbies, history, geography, famous people, sports and TV and film and general knowledge. The final scores were very close with the Golden Eagles winning the P1 – P3 Quiz and the Pine Martins winning the P4 – P7 quiz. However, after adding up all the scores the overall winners of our first ever House Quiz are the Golden Eagles! Congratulations to everyone in the Golden Eagles House! A huge thank you to Emily, Hannah, Dylan, Muhammad Ali, Adam and Sam our House Captains for organising the quiz and coming up with all the questions!
We are delighted to have a Currire Primary hockey team for the first time this year, who played their first match yesterday. Although a very experienced Nether Currie team beat us 5-3 Miss Mackay and Mrs Elliott were very proud and pleased how the P7 team played .
Everyone enjoyed themselves and Currie came away pleased with the way they played on a fast concrete pitch.
The P7s also wore the new school strips and I am sure you will agree they look very smart!
A huge congratulation to everyone in P7 for raising £1683.37 through the different events they organised for us all for Comic Relief. This is a fantastic total and has been sent off today.
Friday is a dress down day – children can wear their own clothes to school if they want to! Remember Easter Bonnets are also for Friday if the chidlrenwant to make and wear one to school!
