Congratulations to Nukso
Nuko’s poster has won the Safer Internet Day competition organised by Edinburgh City Council and Police Scotland.

Nukso will attend the Edinburgh event on Tuesday 11/2/14 to collect the prize, an ipad mini for our school. Well Done Nukso, we are all very proud of you !
Tollcross Primary has signed up for Hour of Code. The Hour of Code is a self-guided activity that every student, in every classroom, can do. A variety of hour-long tutorials will be available for students to try out the basics of computer science.

Ministers visit Tollcross Primary
Dr Alasdair Allan MSP, Minister for Learning, Science & Scotland’s Languages and Shona Robison MSP, Minister for Commonwealth Games & Sport visited Tollcross Primary this morning. During their visit, ministers met our P6/7 pupils and shared the Outdoor PE Route our pupils have created at the Union Canal. We are sure they enjoyed their visit.
This is what the ministers said about the Outdoor PE Project …
“Really impressed with the use of technology in this project. Kids really enjoyed the activities and were “puffed” by the end, which is what I like to see ! Would be good to see this idea shared with schools across Scotland.”
Shona Robison, Sports Minister
“Great to see the school so involved in designing and using something that helps you learn and keep fit at the same time. Sure other schools will want to copy.
Alastair Allan, Schools Minister

A Video for all the Paleontologists at Tollcross Primary
This video was taken at the Natural History Museum in London. We have lots of palaeontologists at Tollcross and I am sure they will enjoy watching this robotic T-Rex, he looks very real and very scary ! Don’t watch before bedtime !
Tollcross Eco Committee Video
The Eco Committee made this video using imovie and presented it at a whole school assembly to introduce the Litter Picking Rota. The Rota has been a great success in helping to keep our playground litter free. Thank you to Ms Chadwick and the Eco Committee for all their hard work. We are keen to be green !
