Book Week at Tollcross

From 27th February to 3rd March it will be Book Week in school.

During the week there will be lots of reading activities and competitions to celebrate World Book Day on 2nd March.

We will also have our very popular Dressing Up Parade on the morning of March 2nd. This year’s theme is Heroes and Villains and all children from Nursery to P7 are welcome to join in. Please come and see the amazing costumes as we walk round the playground at 9.10am. There will be prizes for the best costumes!

The Scholastic Book Fair will be here from Tuesday to Friday, with a selection of books to buy for children from Nursery to P7. This sale was incredibly successful last year so we are hoping for another super selection of books.

More details about all these events will be in the next newsletter and updates will appear here on the blog.

Tollcross at Edinburgh Airport

On Friday 16th December, some members of the School Choir travelled to Edinburgh Airport to raise money for the school. The kids were very excited and had a great time singing to all the passengers walking by. Any money raised by the kids was matched by Edinburgh Airport so the GRAND TOTAL raised by Tollcross was £205.20!! Well done everyone!! A big thank you to Edinburgh Airport for their generosity, Mrs Robertson for all her help and decorating the school banner and finally, a huge thank you to the kids for making the trip so special! Happy Christmas!
