First of all we would like to congratulate Ethan (The Giraffes) on winning the Colinton Cup this month. Ethan has been working cooperatively with other pupils, ensures his work is well presented and has excellent manners with both the staff and other pupils. Well done Ethan.
We welcomed the parents of our P1 pupils starting in August into the school at the end of last week. These parents joined us for an assembly and took a tour of the school with our P7 pupils who did a wonderful job of showing everyone around.
Mrs Imrie has been busy hosting some fine dining events for pupils who have gained 100 house vouchers as well as some tea parties for the pupils who have earned 50 house vouchers. Well done to all those pupils who have reached their milestone target.
We would like to take the time to remind everyone of our “Extreme Reading” initiative. Details have been been sent home to every child and we look forward to seeing everyone’s photographs. We also sent two of our P7 pupils, Alan and Rosa, to Bonaly Primary on Monday for a special author/writers event. Both Alan and Rosa thoroughly enjoyed their day and have come back to Colinton full of good ideas.
The Parent Council met on Tuesday after school to discuss a number of items. A copy of the minutes is available to read from the school office. Any parents wishing to attend our Parent Council meetings are more than welcome to join us and should speak in the first instance to Mrs McGuigan about the timing of the next meeting.
Finally, we would like to wish everyone an enjoyable half term holiday. School finishes at the usual time on Friday and will return as usual on Monday 20 February.
