Black History Month in Primary 2

This is Primary 2’s poster for Mary Seacole who was our focus for Black History Month. We worked to think about all the things Mary Seacole did in her life and why we remember her now and this is the compilation of our pictures that went into our information poster which is now out in the corridor on display with every other classes’ work. Well done everyone for working so hard!

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.
