Our Christmas Fair will take place on Saturday 30th November at the new Lasswade High School Centre between 11am and 1pm.
This is also the same day that the Christmas lights will be switched on in the town centre.
We are also planning to have a raffle this year with the top prize being an Ipad mini!!!
All the usual attractions will be there including Santa Claus in his grotto.
We hope this session is going to be another exciting one for our P5 Learning Council. Every year a small group of children are selected from P5. These children find out what is happening in other schools and share their learning. This session our Learning Council members at P5 are Euan Maguire, Isla Hunter and Fatima Yusef P5Y and Paul McIntyre, Michael Page and Elle Alexander P5X. The children then share lots of new information with the rest of our school at Assembly or our Citizenship gatherings.
Our Junior Road Safety Officers organised a Design a Mascot competition in school for all stages to enter.
Caitlin Stewart in P6Y won the competition with this fabulous mascot Olly – The Bolly Bop Man!!!
Congratulations Caitlin!! And watch out for Olly, I am sure you will be seeing him around!
On our very first visit of the Learning Council Bonnyrigg, Burnbrae and Hawthornden came to visit our school. We gathered them into the small hall and they made a name badge.

Our First Level Masterclasses took place this afternoon with experiments being conducted in sound, energy, electric circuits, magnets and solubility.
The children enjoyed working across the stages and having the opportunity to discuss their learning.
After the success of our Friday Focus groups last year, we have launched Monday Mingles this year offering our P3-P7 pupils a range of exciting learning experiences and the opportunity to work across age stages and with a variety of teachers.
We will be holding our first consultations of the 2013-2014 school year on Wednesday and Thursday between 5pm and 7pm.
We look forward to welcoming you along.
