Once more, our Book Fair was a great success. Thank you to everyone who bought something, we hope you enjoy the new books you bought.

With your help we have raised a very impressive  £835.50 to buy new books for our school. Look out for the new books which will be arriving in school very soon!

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.

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!
