Weekly Newsletter 19th January 2018


Last week at Liberton Primary

  • Well done to all the children from our basketball team who represented the school brilliantly at the NBA London match at the O2.  As well as attending the match the children also got to play games on the O2 court, meet Premiership footballers as well as NBA players.  Thank you so much to Mrs Bremner and all the parents who accompanied the children and helped make the trip so special.
  • This week was our Reflection Jotter week where children had a chance to collate their work into a single jotter, to reflect on the learning that they have done and talk about what their next steps should be.
  • Unfortunately we had to postpone our Libby Leaders session this week.  It will be held next week instead.
  • On Thursday our assemblies launched the next block of our Building Resilience programme which is titled Take a Moment.
  • Also on Thursday P7s were visited by scientist Dave Parnham to discuss issues around medical research involving animals.

Unlabelled Lost Property

Again we have a large amount of unlabelled lost property in our reception area.  If your child has lost any items please check in lost property before the end of next week.  Any unclaimed items will be recycled on 26th January.  PLEASE LABEL YOUR CHILD’S CLOTHING.


Medical information

To help keep everyone in our school community healthy please inform the office if your child has shingles, chicken pox or German measles.


Homework Club

Our highly popular Homework Club will recommence the week beginning Monday 29th January for children from Primary 3 and 4 who applied for places earlier on this session.  Mr McGee will be sending out confirmation letters in due course.  Please contact him via the school office if you require any additional information.



We are delighted that we received so many donations for our new library last term.  The shelves are beginning to fill up.  We would still welcome more donations of good quality used books which can be placed in the box at Reception.  We would also welcome any donations of old Lego.


New date for your diary:  Class photos

Coldwells Photography will be coming to take the class photos on the 7th March 2018.

Family Film night – Friday 2nd Feb

Back by popular demand, the LPSA are putting on a film night in the school on Friday 2nd Feb @ 5.30pm.


The kids have been voting in class on the choice of film this week and the outright favourite was Boss Baby. So… get the date in your diaries, look out your onesie and your favourite bean bag and prepare to come along for a fun film night together (children must be accompanied by at least 1 adult).


LPSA will be selling tickets outside the school office at drop off and pick up between 29th Jan – 2nd Feb and will be £3 per person or £8 for a family ticket (for 4).


Tickets are limited due to space – last year was a sell-out so get yours early to avoid disappointment!

Put your unwanted Christmas gifts to good use – bring them into school in January to be raffled/auctioned at our fundraiser on 25/2/18 at Gilmerton Miners Club (get this date in your diary NOW details to follow) so they find a new home where they’ll be loved!
