Mrs Whitford’s Kirky News

Welcome back to school and I hope you all had a lovely week.

We welcome Mrs Kara Mudie who will be the new class teacher for P4A. I am certain she will be a great asset to the KPS team. Angela Watson (PSA) is leaving us to take up post nearer home and we wish her well. The post for a full-time PSA is currently being advertised.

The playground works are complete with just snagging to be done. We now need to have all the works passed for health and safety by both Edinburgh Council and ROSPA and then wait for the grass to seed. We might have use of it before Christmas if we are lucky!

The lines for parents to ensure a clear path in the playground were due to be painted in the holiday week but due to the rain, this has been postponed.

P1, 2 and 3 are about to embark on a vocabulary boosting project with the children so look out for further information.

Bonus Ball starts again this Friday with a focus on Maths and Numeracy. Biscuits and juice have been purchased!

Next Thursday 2nd November is the Edinburgh school’s open day for prospective P1s. The school will be open for new pupils and parents in the morning – 9:15 to 10:15 and afternoon – 1:30 to 2:30. If you know of anyone coming to school next August, please let them know as our P7s are excited to do the tours.
