Your Parent Teacher Group Needs You!

The next PTG meeting will take place on Friday 29th September at 11.30am at school.

This meeting is solely to discuss what school events the PTG will support financially this year and what fundraising events will be held. Mr Wood will share staff thoughts on what the PTG could help fund to enhance the children’s experiences in school.

Events will be voted on at the meeting and the majority vote will be carried so please attend if you can to make your vote count!

The Moorfoot Primary Duck Race will take place at Fushiebridge on Saturday 30th September at 11.00am. Duck Race forms have been sent home and we would like to encourage your children to sell as many ducks as they can. The Duck Race has always been a great fundraiser for the PTG and a fabulous family event, let’s make this our best yet!


Jason and the Argonauts

On Thursday 21st of September class 4 went on a trip to Gorebridge primary school to see a hilarious play performed by two people. The show featured an old story from ancient Greece, given the name of Jason and the Argonauts. The story tells the tale of a man called Jason, who one night has a dream about his slaughtered father the king he said he had been murdered by his greedy uncle, just because he wanted the crown. He told him that Jason was the rightful king and he must take back the throne. But by the time Jason got to the castle his evil uncle tricks him and sends him on a journey to the end of the world to retrieve  the golden fleece. Class 4 thought it was great fun to watch!

Our Fantastic Week

Last week we went to ski at Hillend Ski Centre on Wednesday 6th of September. It was class 3 and 4 who went. The beginners had a talk about being safe on the slope, the level two went with their instructor, the 3 and up went with their instructor.  We had lots of fun skiing and will return to the slippery slopes next week.

Class 4 started making little robots with an ICT teacher. We had to put lots of Lego sort of pieces  together and tried to get the robots to drive.

The Primary 7 are going to Newbattle  High School for a french fashion show!

The JRSOs are going to Woodburn for a meeting with all of the rest of the JRSOs in different schools. The JRSOs are Erin and Layla.
