As always, we’re on the look out for helpers who can assist with setting up & tidying  up, as well as people to help out during opening hours. If you can come along to offer assistance for even an hour or so at any point during the day please let your child’s teacher know or mention it at the office.

World Book Day – Update

We had planned to give pupils the opportunity to dress down for World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March, but as the children are having photos taken that day we are instead inviting them to bring in slippers and a dressing gown. You are still welcome to make a small donation towards decorating our new library if you wish.

The main event of the day – organised by the Friends of Gylemuir – will be going ahead as scheduled however. Storyteller Fiona Herbert will be in Gylemuir for the day and all the children will be given the opportunity to hear from her.
