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!
The staff and pupils of Tollcross would like to wish you all a Peaceful and Happy Family Festive Season.
We look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Tuesday 10 January 2017.
Please note that school closes on Thursday at 12 Noon for all pupils.
School pupils prepare time capsule as tenement restoration nears completion
Children from Tollcross primary school in Edinburgh are filling a time capsule with mementoes to mark a major restoration project at a pre-1919 tenement.
And the P5 pupils hope their collection of items, which will be placed behind a cornerstone of the building at Earl Grey Street, will lie undiscovered for 100 years.
The tenement is being restored by Dunedin Canmore, part of Wheatley Group, and is just up the road from the primary school.
Councillor Cammy Day, Education Convener for the City of Edinburgh Council, visited the class at Tollcross primary school to see the items they have prepared for the time capsule. He said: “It’s difficult to imagine what Tollcross will look like in 100 years’ time but I bet the pupils of the future can’t wait to get their hands on all the interesting items that our generation have put into the time capsule today. It will be a real eye opener for them as to what life was like in 21st Century Edinburgh when it’s discovered.”
Thank you to everyone who came along to our Pop-Up Shop on Friday. You helped us to raise £166.23 !
