P1/2 Trip to Jade Garden

Out infant class enjoyed a very exciting trip to Jade Garden, the Chinese Restaurant in Eyemouth. They ate A LOT of food but also learnt about Chinese culture and traditions. A huge thank you must be made to Mr & Mrs Chen who hosted so wonderfully.

Rotakids Rally

Our resident Rotakids Club pupils are travelling to Livingston on Wednesday to take part in the annual Rotakids Rally. We look forward to hearing all about it on their return.

World Book Day

Next Thursday (2nd March) is World Book Day. To help us mark this important annual event, we would like to hold a Book Switcheroo. Every pupil is invited to bring in a book from home that they will then swap with someone else in their class resulting in every pupil getting to take home a new book. It is important that parents / carers are supportive of this venture and are aware of the book coming into school! If you have any questions, please contact the school office.

Pupils will also receive the World Book Day voucher that gives them £1 off of any book.

P1/2 teacher arrangements next week

Please note that supply teachers will be in P1/2 for some of next week. Mrs Easingwood will not be in class on Wednesday (1st) and Mrs Cook will not be in on Thursday (2nd) or Friday (3rd).

Borders Schools Badminton Championship

3 pupils from Coldingham primary took part in this. Carrie Gibson won the girls competition, Poppy Young did very well and got through to the quarter finals and Rory Gibson won an award for good sportsmanship. Well done to all.
