Pupils are expected to have an EDINBURGH YOUNG SCOT CARD and use it to purchase food in the school kitchen.  Systems are changing and very soon the school will no longer be able to supply temporary cards to pupils who have lost or forgotten their card.   

It is very important that everyone has their own with them every day especially if you are entitled to free school meals.

If you have lost your card please ask at the school office for a form to apply for a new card.  If you have forgotten your card the office may be able to lend you one for that day only but repeated offenders will be asked to pay £2 for a replacement.   

If you have been issued with a temporary card and have not yet returned it please do so as soon as possible.  Go home and check your rooms, bags etc. and get any spare cards back to the office.  That way supplies will not run out and we should continue to be able to loan temporary cards out.

The Daily Dozen
The Daily Dozen is an opportunity to meet with the Head Teacher to share your views about the School because we care about what you think.

Starting from Monday, 1 December 2014, pupils will be invited in two groups of six to meet with Mr Hunter in the Head Teacher's Office.

Slips will be issued during Registration.

Pupils should register with class teacher first and then report to Mr Hunter’s office.

We look forward to hearing your views!
Mr Hunter


Number Day
Friday the 5th of December is 'Number Day'. Look out for events and competitions around the school. Pupils are invited to dress down for the day and donate £1 in aid of NSPCC. As the theme is number day, a prize will be awarded for the best 'number themed' outfit so get creative!   Football strips are not allowed.
