Just a selection of the many amazing book characters that were walking the halls of Craiglockhart today! From Fantastic Mr Fox, Kipper, The Snail and the Whale and Paddington to Mr Law as John Darling from Peter Pan, everyone has enjoyed sharing their favourite characters and stories. A huge ‘well done’ to our brilliant House Captains who led wonderful, book inspired, assemblies for their houses this morning. Happy reading everyone!
As part of the 75th anniversary of the end of The Holocaust Primary 7A were invited to create ‘peace lanterns’ as part of an art project, with children from another 4 Edinburgh Primary Schools. They created their wonderful lanterns with Mrs Watson our art specialist then attended an event with the other primary schools to hear stories of the holocaust and discuss how they can inspire peace through their actions. The lanterns are now on exhibition at The Scottish Parliament and are a beautiful commemoration and reminder of what we can all do to make the world a more peaceful place.
Huge congratulations to our amazing P6/7 Sportshall Team who have been crowned Edinburgh Champions again for the third year running. It was a tightly fought competition this year but their drive, enthusiasm and dedication all paid off. They are now in training for the East of Scotland Championships in March.
