Green Flag Celebration Ceremony

On Tuesday 4th December, Echline celebrating being awarded the Green Flag Status by Eco-Schools (part of the Keep Scotland Beautiful Charity).

The Eco Committee from 2017/18 worked extremely hard to achieve this prestigious award and created a video to illustrate the hard work they had put into making Echline as Eco friendly as possible. The video was shown at the Green Flag Ceremony, which the whole school attended.

The new Eco flag was paraded around the school – cheered on by every class, then raised after all the pupils said the school’s Eco Code. Everyone was so excited to see the flag flying high and proud of the achievement it stands for. Well done everyone!

This year’s Eco Committee are excited to continue the good work that has been started and bring new eco-friendly ideas and initiatives to the table.

Echline raises over £600 for Children in Need!

The House Captains organised a dress down day and book sale in aid of Children in Need. Thank you to all families who donated books for the book sale and for your generous donations which means we have raised over £600 for such a worthy charity!

Well done to the House Captains for organising this for the school and nursery, and for reading the Pudsey story to some of the younger classes this week. Your hard work is much appreciated!

Thanks very much also to Mrs Shaw and Mrs Hinchliffe for coming in for the morning to help out!

Food and Farming event

P4/5 and P5 went to RHET’s Food and Farming event at Ingliston on Wednesday 14th November. We went to lots of different stations to learn about different farm animals, how ice cream, apple juice and honey are made, farm produce, food waste and lots more! It was really interesting and we all enjoyed our day out!
