It has not stopped raining since breakfast, but we are still a bunch of happy campers. Shelter building and orienteering were the new activities today. Just had some hot chocolate before the next session. See you all tomorrow.
Yesterday, as part of health and eco week, we went to the Echline community woodland. We looked for different types of leaves on the trees before playing a game where we had to identify a tree while blindfolded by feeling the texture and thickness of the tree. We had great fun! Here are some pictures.
Hello and welcome back, we will be updating you on the P4/5 & P5 healthy cook book. The Finance team is working hard on finding an ok price for our healthy cook book. The Design team are finishing up on the final design for our healthy cook book. The final recipes are being printed and put in the cook book. It is a very exciting time for us all because next week our Healthy Cook Book will begin selling. All of the teams have been working especially hard recently. We have had lots of fun during this project. It really feels like a real job and we all wish it would never end!
This morning I was fortunate enough to have been invited along to attend the opening ceremony of the new guardian which is situated to the east of south queensferry. Nearly 4 years ago, I ran an afterschool art club for upper school children who are now at secondary school. During some of the sessions, we were fortunate enough to be joined by artist Debbie Ryan who did some sculpture lessons with us. The designs that the pupils came up with have now been placed on the sculpture and they look marvellous! As well as the art club involvement, Mrs Miller’s primary seven class at the time were also involved. I just want to take this opportunity to say well done to those pupils (who are now in 2nd and 3rd year of high school). Please share this with anyone who may have been involved, and do take some time to visit the sculpture in the future. I feel immensely proud of Echline pupils for all of their efforts and hard work involved in the project. Here is a picture of the finished sculpture.
We helped Mr Williamson sort the Golden Tickets yesterday from the Big Pedal event which took place over the last 2 weeks in March, before the Easter holidays. Well done to everyone who cycled and scooted to school during that time!
