Dear Parents and Carers

  • Bruntsfield Primary School Badminton Team are once again Edinburgh Schools Champions! They won the Edinburgh Primary School Quaich and  the Edinburgh Primary School  Bruntsfield will represent Edinburgh in the Finals of the SSBU Gibb Memorial Primary Quaich at Ravenscraig Sport Centre on Saturday 24th February 2018. Well done to: Ishbel, Freya and Rhona in P7, Poppy, Logan, Hugh and Elwyn in P6. Joe in P5 and to Michael Louden, their Badminton Coach.
  • You asked about First Aid training: We have 6 fully trained ‘First Aiders’ in school. All pupil support assistants have been trained at Emergency Aid level, plus myself and six of the teachers.
  • We are planning to have staff photos on a board in the small entrance hall, along with a box for parents to drop messages in. I am hoping the photographer can help with this in March.
  • Kidzcare and other interested parties are holding a meeting on Wednesday 31 January at the Eric Liddle Centre from 7-9pm to discuss ideas for the Astley Ainsley Site. They invite you to join them. Please note, this is not a School or Council meeting.
