News from Mr Bewsey
I missed contributing to a newsletter last week because I was supervising our P7 pupils on their annual outdoor pursuits residential. It was a privilege to be able to spend time with our current P7 cohort and to see them flourish in a different environment. They were a credit to the school.
Having missed last week’s newsletter, I was unable to express my gratitude to the PFA for the recent Spring Fayre. I wanted to say a massive thank you for all the hard work and effort that went into making the Spring Fayre such a positive and successful event. Though it was fairly quiet, the PFA still managed to raise a brilliant sum of money for the school – a grand total of £584.66 was raised. Thank you to all those that helped organise, for donations, for running stalls and for turning out on the day.
It was wonderful to be able to welcome our new Primary 1 pupils to join their new class this week and to stay for lunch. I hope everyone enjoyed the experience. The ‘move up morning’ proved to be beneficial for all pupils who were able to spend time with their new class teacher and peers.
Did you know… we have recently started working in partnership with Eyemouth High School science department. Every week, P6/7 receive a science lesson delivered by Ms Gillian Good, a science teacher. This new partnership is providing our pupils with an experience of ‘real’ science with expert tuition. So far, pupils and staff are positive.
And finally, I want to encourage you to ‘follow’ our new website. By subscribing to the email notifications, you can get the weekly newsletters sent directly to your email account. You won’t lose a letter again!
