Primary 7 have been learning about setting up a small business as part of our enterprise project. They will be running a Snack Shack every Friday selling healthy snacks. Money raised will help towards the cost of our P7 residential week at Benmore Outdoor Centre in March. Every class will have the opportunity to visit the Snack Shack on Friday mornings to buy snacks for break time. Please support our P7 pupils in their business venture. Snacks will include fruit, popcorn and muffins !

A consultation is underway to help draw up plans for new 20 mph speed limits across Edinburgh. Following a successful pilot in South Edinburgh, a 20 mph speed limit is now proposed for the City Centre, main shopping streets and residential areas.
Whatever your views about our 20 mph speed limit proposals, we want to hear from you. You can email your views to the address below or use the online questionnaire. Drop-in events, public meetings and exhibitions are also taking place across the city.
An interactive map of the draft proposals, a list of frequently asked questions and details of the engagement events are available on the Council’s website at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/20mph
Please forward this email to any contacts that you feel would be interested in making their views heard on the proposals. The consultation is open and you can feedback until 17 October.
Thank you to everyone who came along to our Meet the Teacher Session, an opportunity to share learning and expectations for the coming academic year. We welcome your comments and suggestions and will use them to improve and enhance the service we provide at Tollcross Primary.
