Dear Parents/Carers

It is hard to believe it is September already!

School parking – Border Buses are struggling to turn at the top of the road (in the caravan site entrance) due to cars parked so far up the road. If you do need to park up the road, please check first that you are not going to cause a problem for the buses. Please consider using the parking in Priors walk, or the surgery car park. .

School Canteen – Michelle and her kitchen have passed the Food Standards Scotland hygiene inspection with flying colours. Well done, Michelle!

Please turn over to read a report from Anna and Lulu on P6/7’s trip to the hippodrome!

P6,7 Trip to the hippodrome – “Giles helped us with drawing some characters for their video game that will be on VR headsets . We saw the new underwater camera that can see everywhere and they are going leave it in the water somewhere then come back and look at the video. They showed us the different fish that live here and we had a quiz. They are mapping out part of the sea and they are responsible for that part of the sea .Then we went to see the seal”🐟😁😃 by Anna and Lulu 😎

I look forward to seeing Parents/Carers who can make it on the 18th. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you would like to meet up, for whatever reason.

Kind regards
