Halloween Disco

Last week’s Halloween disco was a huge success and I want to express my gratitude to the parents that help transform the school hall into a scary hall. Particular thanks must go to Katie Kendrick for organising the whole evening and to Hana Hearn and Ailsa McNeill for all their work with decorating the hall. Thank you.

Netball competition

I am incredibly proud of our P6/7 netball team who took part in the Borders competition on Wednesday. Out of 12 teams, they finished third equal overall and were the top team from Berwickshire. They were a fantastic team, hugely encouraging and supportive of one another. Thank you to Helen Gibson for coaching the team and organising the competition entry and to Raquel Lloyd-Jones for assisting with transport.

Staffing update

Mrs Clark will be joining us permanently now to teach P3/4 on Tuesdays. However, she will be finishing her support in P1/2 and Mrs Easingwood will resume her full teaching commitment.

Mrs Teather has agreed to continue to teach PE until SBC have recruited a new PE teacher. We are grateful to her for committing to this vacancy and providing consistency for the pupils.
