Friday 25 November

We have had busy week.  Parent consultations, a “Fischy Music” concert and a badminton festival on top of all the usual things that go on in school.

Parent Consultations

All parents had the opportunity to speak to their child’s class teacher on either Wednesday or Thursday.  If there are any outstanding issues you would like to address then please contact the school office to make another appointment, either with Mrs Imrie or with the class teacher.

Fischy Music

Yesterday was “Fischy Music” day at Colinton.  In the morning all the classes took part in a series of workshops, run by Jed and Jo from the Fischy Music team, in which they learned and created songs for themselves about themselves before the whole school gathered in the hall for a showcase concert in the afternoon.  All the children had a super time, giving it a “10 out of 10”.

Badminton Festival

On Monday morning the Lions followed up their hard work in school on badminton by going to Meadowbank to participate in a badminton festival.  All of the class worked very hard and we were delighted by the success of Jamie, who recorded the best score of all the pupils there in one of the main events.  Congratulations Jamie.


We have some more goodbyes to say this week.  Today Mr Stewart, who has been working alongside Mrs Pentland in The Polar Bears class, says farewell to Colinton.  He has worked in the school for five weeks and now returns to college.  We wish him every success for his future placements and the rest of his career.  We also said goodbye to Captain Borthwick, the Unit Welfare Officer from 1 Scots.  Captain Borthwick has provided the school with a great deal of support during his time in Edinburgh and he too leaves with our best wishes.

Finally, the Golden Book has been updated this week and although the weather is currently quite miserable, we all hope you have a lovely weekend.
