Success at the P6/7 Cross Country event

Some P6 and P7 pupils attended the Edinburgh Cross Country event on Monday at Inverleith park. Amid beautiful spring sunshine, the four teams competed against teams from 58 schools from across Edinburgh. A great event for all of the Buckstone pupils who attended. There were some personal achievements as well as team success. The P6 boys team came third in the competition and the P7 girls team came first, bringing the P7 girls trophy back for display in school.

Well done everyone!

Passarelle Basketball Tournament

On Monday 18th January, a group of P6 and P7 pupils took part in a basketball tournament at Meadowbank Stadium. Although the scores mean that the team will not progress to the next stage of the competition, the children remain positive and upbeat. Everyone contributed well to the team performance and valuable experience was gained.

Park Smartly

Our Parksmart campaign launched this week. We aim is to improve road safety by reducing congestion around the school, asking parents to park smartly  and encouraging pupils to walk to school. We have already carried out a ‘hands up’ survey with the children, surveyed the traffic and sent home a Parksmart Pledge letter to parents. Please support this initiative by sending your reply slip back to school by Friday 15th January.

P3-5 watch ‘The Good Dinosaur’

Primary 3, 4 and 5 enjoyed their trip to see ‘The Good Dinosaur’ at the Dominion Cinema in Morningside this morning. A Disney production, comfortable seats and a sweet treat meant that the event was enjoyed by all concerned. What a lovely treat for the end of term!

Sportshall Athletics

On Monday 23 November, thirty P6 and 7 children participated in the Sportshall Athletics at Meadowbank.  There were nine schools from Edinburgh and we placed fourth overall!  Everyone tried hard and some also achieved personal bests.  We are very proud of them all.  We appreciate the time Ms Hastie spent training the pupils and would also like to thank parents for their support on the day.
