With the deadline for the opening of the New High School set for March 2020, the Parent Forum have invited Alex Crawford (Depute Head and New Build Coordinator at Queensferry High School), to come along to Dalmeny Primary to give the school community a presentation on the new school. This will take the form of a 3D virtual walk through of the building followed by a question and answer session. Mr Crawford will also bring along sets of plans for parent/carers to view. Our current Primary 7 parent/carers will also have an opportunity to view this presentation in May at the QHS information evening for the 2019/20 Senior 1 intake.
This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone in our school community to learn about the high school which the vast majority of our children attend for their senior stage of learning. The presentation will take place in the hall starting at 19:00 and will last approximately 40 minutes.
If you are able to support our school either with a regular commitment of time or to help with class outings and sporting events, please contact the school office for further information.
Congratulations to our team of P5’s and 6’s for reaching the final of Marty’s Coding Party. They competed against 31 other teams to reach the final six. The final will take place at Foresters High School on Monday the 18th June.
Abbey, Jamie, Yusef, Charlie, Kirsty and Rania programmed a Greatest Showman themed dance routine in the Scratch programming language. They then videoed Marty executing the moves and created an iMovie, which was entered into the competition.
Congratulations to our P6/7 quiz team for winning the Edinburgh Final of the Rotary Quiz, they will compete in the Scottish Final on Sunday 3rd June. Well done to Sophie, Sam, Ross and Massimo, we are so proud of you !
An enormous thank you to all our parents, carers, childminders, former pupils and members of the community who gave freely of their time this weekend to clear the snow, ensuring that school could open on Monday.
There was a great community spirit among all the hard work. Your time and effort is very, very much appreciated.
To mark Scottish Book week we had a whole school home learning challenge to make your favourite book character from either a dolly peg, a wooden spoon or a potato.
These are the results :
The Primary 5/6 class worked hard to organise a Coffee Morning as part of the Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning fundraiser. In addition to a wonderful array of home baking, guests had the opportunity to buy books, guess the height of the cake and guess the teddy bear’s birthday. The children were very well supported by the whole school community, who either baked for the event or came along to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and cake in the hall. Well done to the children for organising such a successful event and raising £384.79 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
