For our Primary 7 children of course, it is time to move on to high school and many of the 7s are having transition days this week.

At the other end of the school we’re looking forward to welcoming our new Primary 1s, and you can view our Nursery to P1 slideshow by clicking below.

School Fair this Saturday (20th May)

The Gylemuir Summer Fair is being held this Saturday 20th May and it’s not too late to bring in your donations or offer your services as a helper.

Donations of books, toys and homebaking will be gratefully received, or if you can come along to offer assistance at any point during the day please let your child’s teacher know or mention it at the office.

The fair will be on in the school and grounds between 11am and 1.30pm.

Reading Jars

Whenever you read something for enjoyment (book, magazine, comic, blog, match report etc.) write it down in your Reading Challenge Book (Nursery – P3) or your Reading Passport (P4-P7) and show your teacher. You will then be given a reading token to add to your year group’s jar. The winning year group at the end of the term will win a special prize from Mrs Smart!

Happy reading J
