Round up of this week…

Football and Rugby Festival

Our P4 and P6 pupils had a great morning on Thursday at the football and rugby festival. Pupils from Ayton, Coldingham, Co’path, Eyemouth and Reston took part in a variety of skill development exercises. Our thanks to Kendal Smith (Active Schools) and Bert Griggs (Berwickshire Rugby) for their efforts in organising the morning.

Rotakids Quiz night

On Thursday night, a number of families joined together at Grantshouse Community Hall to help celebrate the inauguration of our Rotakids groups. We were joined by the Rotary District President who presented our pupils with their official group charter. After the formalities, we all enjoyed a quiz and a picnic tea. Well done to Matilda Burgess and her mum and dad on their winning quiz answers. Thank you to all that attended.

P1/2 trip to the Fire Station

Pupils in P1/2 enjoyed a brilliant trip to the Eyemouth Fire Station. A ride on the service bus was followed by a tour of the fire station, a look at the fire engine and a shot with the fire hose. Our thanks go to Eyemouth Fire & Rescue team for their time and enthusiasm.
