A big well done to our P7 football team for their performances in the semi-final of the Inspectors Cup on Wednesday evening. The team played fantastically well, as they always do and came second in their group, just missing out on a place in the final. We were all very proud of their professionalism and sportsman like behaviour both on and off the pitch throughout the tournament and over the last few years playing for the school teams.
Well done to everyone who has taken part in Walk to School Week 2018. It has been great to see how many children have travelled to school in an ECO friendly way.

Lots of children were out of school on trips so the number of taking part was less than Tuesday.

If you do live far away from school, maybe tomorrow you could try walking some of the way by parking a little bit further away from the school entrance.
P1 and P2 enjoyed the Magic Show this afternoon in school. Tricky Ricky was as always very entertaining! Thank you to the PTA for organising this event and to all the parents who came along to help.
Our school Extension Planning Group were invited to have a look round our new extension this week to see how the work was progressing. The group enjoyed having a look round and being able to see the plans they helped develop coming to life and sitting in the digger! Thank you to Shaun the site manager for inviting the group along.
Thank you to P7 who organised and ran our sticker swap this week giving everyone a chance to swap their doubles for some they did not have yet for our school sticker books. We will organise another swapping event before the end of term to give everyone a chance to complete their books.
We said good-bye to Tam, one of our school Crossing Patrol Officers in assembly on Friday as he has decided to retire. Tam has a long history with our school as his own, now grown up, children were pupils at Riccarton Primary and he has been one of our Crossing Patrol Officers for the last 8 years. Tam is a firm favourite with many of our pupils who cross with him every day and we are sorry to see him go. We all wish him a long and happy retirement.
