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!
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. The children took part in activities such as Bush Craft, Food Science, Film and Media, and Sports. This helped support Melissa’s desire to work with children and has given her valuable experience.
Please see letter informing parents/carers of a change of date for the May Day holiday in 2020.

Just to share some news in music of four pupils sitting their ABRSM exams on cello today:
Elena Morgan – Grade 4
Maya MacDonald – Grade 4
Eve Sneddon – Grade 4
Calum Rafferty – Grade 3
To put this into context, the minimum standard requirement for Nat 5 is Grade 3 and higher is Grade 4 so these pupils are progressing at an exceptional rate for their ages! ABRSM results also accumulate tariff points which can be used to support UCAS applications in the future. All these pupils are supported by our cello teacher Tracy Dance.
Best of luck to you all!
