We hope that this will answer some of your questions about starting school at Royal Mile Primary in August.

Miss Copeland is a fabulous teacher! She has so many interests and is always so busy. She plays hockey and keeps herself very fit and healthy! She loves playing musical instruments but she says she isn’t very good at singing!

I don’t think that is true – look at this!

We hope you will take a walk to the school as part of your Bear Hunt and look for the bear’s paw prints! Look out for our Royal Mile Bear at the Gate too!
