‘Food, Glorious, Food,’ Dress Up Your Bike Day.

After another successful year of The Big Pedal, coming 5th in Scotland, we finished with the most wonderful Dress Up Your Bike Day with the theme ‘Food, Glorious, Food.’ Well done to all of the children whose bikes were chosen by the JRSOs to go on the stage at assembly but also a huge congratulations to everybody who took part, your creations were amazing and we loved seeing them all arrive in the playground in the morning. It was a joyous way to end a busy term and start off our holidays in style. Thank you all!

2nd Green Flag

We have just heard the fabulous news that we have been awarded our second Green Flag for our work in Learning for Sustainability. The panel were particularly impressed by the action taken by all classes in areas of their choice including the beach clean, campaigning at fast food restaurants about food and packaging waste and our visit and work with a local food bank. Well done to the Eco Committee for putting together our successful application and a special thank you to Mrs Latimer for her wonderful work.

Cabinet Minister’s Visit

Yesterday we welcomed the Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, Roseanna Cunningham to the school. Our school had been chosen because of our Learning for Sustainability work and she met a group of children who spoke so passionately and enthusisatically about the work they are doing. You might have even spotted us on BBC Reporting Scotland. We are so proud of the work the children are involved in and how well they represented our school. A big ‘thank you’ also to Mrs Latimer for the wonderful LfS work she does with the children.

Kira the Machine

The whole community came out on force on Friday to support our friend Kira Noble and support her campaign to raise £340k to get to America for life saving surgery. We were overwhelmed with the response. Huge, huge thanks to the parents who organised Friday’s bake sale and our amazing P7 helpers who were inundated with customers. One things for sure…we have the most incredible community (and we LOVE cake!) £1170.57 raised! Lots of fundraising was going on all over the weekend with bake sales, book sales and our crazy P7s jumping in the canal all raising another £1234! The bucket collection will be ongoing this week and keep bringing in the old pound coins and £5 notes. THANK YOU!

Craiglockhart School Charter

Check out our new School Charter written by our Pupil Parliament using The United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child. This will form the basis of our new Promoting Positive Behaviour Policy and is the start of a revamp of our whole behaviour system. We think the Pupil Parliament has done an incredible job!
