Problematic Risk Taking

Midlothian Council has issued draft guidelines, developed by police, health and social work, to support parents/carers and teachers in talking to young people about problematic risk taking behaviour. They would like parental feedback before moving to issue a final paper later this year. If you would like a copy of the draft guidelines for your consideration, these are available from the school office. Any feedback can be emailed to the school email address F.A.O Ms G Preston (DHT) for collation. Responses are required by Friday 20th September 2019.
Thank you.

Celebrating Achievement – Alfie Knight

Congratulations to Alfie Knight, 1M1, who completed the Pedal for Scotland challenge at the weekend. The Pedal for Scotland Classic Challenge is a 45-mile bike ride from Glasgow to Edinburgh to help raise money for Medical Aid for Palestinians. This event celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. Well done Alfie!

Sharing Achievement – Alix Renwick, 2D2

Congratulations to Alix Renwick, 2D2, who won the Junior Local Hero Award organised by the Edinburgh Evening News for the fundraising she did to buy Friendship Benches for Woodburn Primary School. Unfortunately Alix was in France with the school on the day of the presentation but was invited to Forth One during the summer holidays to meet Arleen Stuart and the other presenters.

Well done Alix!

Sharing Achievement – Melissa Reidie, 5B1

Congratulations to Melissa Reidie, 5B1, who helped and supported the week long Children’s University Summer School at Queen Margaret University for 40 P6/7 pupils during the holidays.
