Thank you to all of our ‘Mad Scientists’who turned up for breakfast this morning to mark the end of the Big Pedal and dressed up themselves and their bikes in spectacular fashion!

The Junior Road Safety Officers did a wonderful job serving breakfast to 198 children and their families and cleaning up afterwards and chose some of the amazing bikes to take up to assembly and share with the school. We even had one with a working electrical circuit that made a buzzing noise! Incredible!


We are Global Citizens

Many thanks to everyone who came along to our Fairtrade morning to learn all about the Global Goals. Our Global Citizenship group were incredible at their different stalls with such wonderful knowledge to share about the goals. Parents were greeted by dancers, delicious Fairtrade baking was on offer thanks to Miss Frater and it was all brought together by the brilliant Miss Ramsay. Well done to all involved!

Sport Relief

A huge thank youto everyone who helped make Sport Relief 2015 so special at Craiglockhart. We had a wonderful assembly where all classes chose to represent sport in a different way from fencing and yoga demonstrations to beautiful ballet dancing. A special thanks to Finlay and his Dad who organised a Sport Relief fun run at Meggetland which was very well attended and wonderful fun!

Cross Country Champions

Huge congratulations to our brilliant P6 and 7 cross country teams who competed in the Edinburgh Schools Championship. They did amazingly well coming 1st in 3 out of 4 races with everyone else nearly getting on the podium! A special mention to the P6 teams who were competing for the very first time and managed 1st place in both their events. We are very proud of them and their talented coaches Mr Huggard, Mr Sweet, Miss Law and Miss Murphy!

Craiglockhart Pupil Kitchen Opens!

Last session Miss Scobbie and Miss Gater secured a ‘Food for Thought’ grant of £2000 to transform Room 8 into a Food Technology Base for the pupils to use to develop their knowledge of food preparation, hygiene and where food comes from. The aim is to develop global food citizens; children who are aware of healthy choices and make decisions about where their food comes from. The kitchen has been re-floored, cookers, stoves and preparation tables have been delivered, utensils bought, and we are ready to go! P4 and 5  got started straight away, making homemade oatcakes during Scottish Week…they were delicious! P5 are doing a project all about Food and have been cooking in there every Friday, preparing fruit salads, cous cous salads and many more tasty treats!

Gardening Angels

A huge thank you to our Gardening Angels who showed up to help get our beds ready for winter and future planting. We weeded, collected leaves, dug over beds and pruned and filled an impressive 10 rubbish bags of garden waste. Everyone worked so hard and we can’t thank them enough!
