Much as we’re all looking forward to our Easter holidays, Friday will be a sad day for everyone at Gylemuir as we say goodbye to Mrs. Welsh who has worked at our school for almost 30 years!
Having been in our office for most of those years, she has tended to the aches and pains of hundreds of pupils, welcomed thousands of visitors, and dished out what seems like millions of smiles!
We wish Mrs. Welsh all the very best for her retirement and look forward to her coming back to visit us.
We’ll miss you Mrs.Welsh!

To celebrate the end of our Walking All Over Cancer challenge we would like to invite you to join us for a walk around the Gyle Park on Friday 29th March.
We will be leaving the school with our Reading Buddies at 9am and aim to walk around the perimeter of the park in order to raise awareness for our staff fundraising event in aid of Cancer Research UK.
We would love you to join us as we leave from the rear gate along the path to the Gyle Park. You can join your child’s class, or any other class, as we leave the school grounds.
On our return, our House Captains will have buckets for any donations should you wish to help our fundraising efforts for this worthy cause.
You can also donate via our JustGiving page by clicking HERE.
We intend to go on the walk unless the weather is very bad so please ensure you child has appropriate footwear and a coat to wear.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the day and keep fingers crossed for good weather!
