World Book Day Thurs 5th March – Dress Up and Donate!

This year we are supporting World Book Day’s campaign to dress-up as a book character and donate £1 for Book Aid International supporting children in Africa.

Thursday 5th March is World Book Day and children are encouraged to dress-up as their favourite book character on this day. More information and ideas for costumes can be found at

Money raised from Dress Down Day this Friday 27th Feb will also be donated to this charity so your child need only bring in £1 if taking part in both events.

Thanks for your support and we are all really looking forward to seeing your costumes !




Transmedia – free Music Making opportunity for 5-8 year olds

Transmedia is a youth arts initiative based at ‘The Kabin’ in Loanhead. They have launched a project called ‘Top of the Tots’ giving a unique chance for children between ages 5 and 8 to get involved in all aspects of music making. During the project participants will get hands on with musical instruments, use cutting edge music making software applications and have the chance to get involved designing artwork for their very own band.

The culmination of the project will see the children spending a day in a world class recording studio making their own CD and performing at a concert for friends and family.

These classes are completely free and run from Fri 13th March to Fri 7th July inclusive. Forms have  gone home in school bags today so please return this to the school office asap if you are interested in your child attending this project.
