Poltonhall Gala Day Sunday 1st June

The school are entering a float in the above event under the theme “The Movies”. This ties in with the P6 and P7 topic of The Moscars and allows us to use some of the art work already created last term on our float. However we definitely require, from 9am on the day, a team of parents to help decorate the float. (There will be bacon rolls and coffee to keep us going!)

This year, the Gala day organisers have given each school maypole, dressed in the school’s colours, to be carried in the parade with pupils following behind the float. We would like to invite pupils, each accompanied by a parent or carer, to walk alongside our float dressed as their favourite film character. You could be anything from Spider Man to Marilyn Monroe!! This is part of our work on the community and would be a lovely experience for the children. The prize for the wining float is £100! We were lucky enough to win this last year and it would be fantastic to retain our title!

We are going to meet at Polton Mill Bus Terminus from 11.30am onwards and will need to be ready to start at 12noon sharp. The parade route is from Polton Mill bus terminus, turn right onto Polton Road West, then right onto Polton Avenue Road, left onto Rosewell Road and left then right onto Eskdale Drive, dispersing at Lasswade High School Centre.

Hope to see you there!!!
