House Captains Competition Winners!

Yesterday at Assembly the House Captains revealed the winners of their Logo Competition.

Clara from The Arthur’s Seat Dragons, Julian from the Holyrood Royals, Fraser from the Parliament Pandas and Carla from the Castle Lions. Congratulations to you all!

Prizes included 10 HOUSEPOINTS and pen for secret messages!

Runners up received notebooks. Well done to everyone who tried – you might be the winner next time!

Tuck Shop

From MONDAY 9th NOVEMBER 2020 we will be selling tuck at the school office between 9 – 9.15am daily.

Every item will cost 50p and exact change would be great. We have risk assessed and will choose only individually wrapped items or fruit with an easy peel skin. Where possible we will buy our stock from Edinburgh Food Initiative which is a community social enterprise.

These labels show the ingredients and warnings so please ensure that you advise your child as well. We will be aware of dietary requirements as well.

The pupil council will be asking for suggestions for stock going forward as well.

River Of Poppies

I hope that everyone has taken a few moments to look at our beautiful river of poppies and reflect on the service and sacrifice made by so many people – our armed forces, our emergency services and health care workers – in the past, in the current unprecedented circumstances and in the future.

I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff, children and families at Royal Mile for their contributions. To the Canongate Kirk ladies (whose knitting lessons we are missing greatly) and Mr Mouat our janitor fro all his hardwork. Please do take a moment to admire our handiwork and remember those who serve and support us all.

Consultation with The Pupil Council

The Pupil Council have been speaking with their classes about the changes that we have made to keep everyone safe at school. We all agreed that some of these have been hard and people have felt a bit upset about them.

Mia, In Primary 6, made this really helpful infographic to summarise the thoughts of her class.

As always, I am impressed by the sensible and thoughtful way our young people are dealing with the world just now.

Well Done Royal Mile!

Friday Fun Day!

FUNdraiser from Pupil Council for Children in Need!

There will be prizes for the funniest and most inventive costumes, traditional guising fun and some treats from the Parent Council.

For your information the treats (which have been quarantined and will be handed out in bags) being offered are:

if you do not wish your child to have any treats please tell us otherwise we will just follow any dietary information we have. If you wish to send an alternative treat please let the class teacher know.

we have spare costumes to lend or make – so please don’t buy anything especially and be very careful of the safety labels in any costumes you purchase!

Happy Friday!!
