Dear Parents, Carers
eNews November 2017
To further increase access to school communication and celebration of wider achievements we have recently signed up to Twitter. There is a feed from this on the school website. However if you are a Twitter user please follow us @BonalyPrimary .
We are fast approaching the Christmas season with the various exciting activities for the children and families. An outline of the dates and timings are below.
Recent Wider Achievements
Our P7 had a very successful trip to Benmore Outdoor Centre. The children took on the various wet, muddy, tiring and high challenges with great enthusiasm. On Thursday 30th November from 3:40 – 4:30 there will be a display of photographs from Benmore for Primary 7 parents and carers to come and see in the hall.
There have been a number of outstanding individual and team performances. We had three divers taking part in an international competition in Dublin. Well done to Fergus Ross, Ben Sharman and Freya Smith.
We had 4 P7 footballers (Euan Scaife. Finlay Smith, Adam Phayre, James Hunt) who took part in Edinburgh Select trials who all did very well. James and Adam were selected to represent Edinburgh schools.
On Tuesday our P7 football team took part in the first rounds of the Scottish Cup. They won all games without losing any goals in the process. The next rounds are due to take place in February.
We had children (P6 and P7) competing in the Scottish Schools Road Relay championships recently in Grangemouth. All did particularly well finishing in the top half of the field. A huge thank you to the parents who supported this.
P6 and P7 won the first round of the indoor athletics competition at Meadowbank. This week they were through to the finals and were pipped by the post. They came 3rd in the final with second place being 1 point ahead of them and first place were just 4 points ahead. So very close, but a great performance accompanied by sporting positive behaviour.
Our P6 and P7 basketball team have been competing in Friday afternoon NBA competitions with great success and enthusiasm.
The school choir were filmed by STV at St Mary’s Cathedral as part of STV2 Christmas programme.
Look out for Edinburgh school choirs on STV2 over the festive period.
Well done to Freya Anderson who will be performing in Cinderella pantomime at the Kings Theatre.
A group of P6 are attending the Scottish Youth Film award ceremony in Glasgow following nomination for an award of their P5 short film, ‘Capturing Edinburgh’.
We are grateful to our parent volunteers who support the bikeability cycle programme. We could now do with a few more volunteers. Could you please contact the school office if you are interested and please see the link to a local training course which is on Thursday 15th February at Dalkeith House in Dalkeith. Booking info is on http://www.cyclinghub.scot/course dates
Can I please remind parents that the back entrance where the car park is should not be used as an entrance/exit. (The only exception being disabled badge holders who use these parking spaces). There are regular delivery lorries and waste collections who use this. This also necessitates the space with no parking sign at the end of Bonaly Grove to be kept clear.
