The Big Pedal ‘May the Fourth be With You’

Here are some pictures to show what a fantastic end to the two weeks we had!

Well done all!

The big pedal

Hello everyone!

I just want to share the exciting news that we are currently first for the whole of Edinburgh in the ‘Big Pedal’. This is a nationwide competition and we are currently 33rd in the UK and 5th in Scotland!

First of all, well done to everyone who has been traveling to school by bike or scooter.

Secondly, can you please encourage your child (if they can) to come to school by bike or scooter over the next few days? We are so close to winning for the whole of Edinburgh and Scotland which would be an amazing achievement.

Thank you as always for your amazing and continued support.

Mr Williamson
