The Snow-Clearing Effort…in pictures!

As you can see, it was a great team effort from parents, carers, staff AND pupils which managed to make the school accessible again after the heavy snowfall.

For so many of you – about 100 volunteers – to come along was absolutely brilliant and a great example of what the Gylemuir School community achieves when we’re working together.

Once again, a huge thank you for all your efforts!

Thank you, snow-clearers! School open on Monday 5th March.

A huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped to clear the snow from the school grounds and approaches this afternoon. It was great to have so many of you turn up to ensure that pupils and staff will be able to access the building safely.

In common with all other schools in the authority, Gylemuir Primary, Nursery and Early Years Hub WILL be open again tomorrow (Monday 5th March).

In the event of any further heavy snow showers please remember to check:
