The Mini Mudder event will be held at Liberton Primary on Saturday! This adventurous day is to help raise funds funds for Joe Clapperton’s appeal for further resources for pre-teen children at Edinburgh’s Sick Kids hospital.

We hope that many people will come along to take part, to watch and to provide encouragement. Remember – if you’d like to take part, it’s not too late! You could make a donation or collect sponsorship money. Additional sponsor forms are available from the school office.

Refreshments will be provided by the Liberton After School Club, and we hope to see lots of people there for what promises to be a very entertaining fun-filled day!

The Liberton After School Club will be selling ice cream from the LASC room on Thursday the 15th and Friday 16th September at the end of each day. All proceeds will go towards Joe’s fundraising campaign. Please bring money to school if you would like some ice cream!

Make Time for Tea!

We are hosting a fabulous event next weekend on Saturday 30th of April from  11am to 1pm, organised by Mrs Pacitti, our Clerical Assistant. Please come along to help raise money for The Eve Appeal, which works towards protecting women from gynaecological cancers through funding research, and promoting awareness for better detection and risk prediction.

It promises to be an incredible morning, with cakes, games, a prize raffle, glitter tattoos and face painting, alternative therapies, a character appearance and much more!

We hope to see you there!

We would like to thank everyone involved in helping this year’s Great Libby Bake Off to be such an incredible success!

We were astounded at the talented children and parents who worked incredibly hard to bake and donate such delicious and attractive cakes, biscuits and goodies.

Our parent volunteers and P6 pupils did a tremendous job with selling the cakes and we were quite overwhelmed by the generosity of all who donated their time and talent.

Congratulations to our winners in the competition:

1st Prize – Craig (P2a)

2nd Prize – Anya (P4b) and Josh (P3b)

3rd Prize – Emily (P7a) and Joe (P6b)

Highly commended certificates were awarded to – Thomas (P2a), Peter (P2a), Murray (P5b), Alex (P7a), Rebecca (P7b) and Louis (P6b)

We have raised an astonishing £406 to go toward the P7 residential trip to Benmore next year.

Thank You!

This year, with the support of LPSA, our Primary 6 classes are organising The Great Libby Bake Off Challenge and Bake Sale. We would like to raise some money to go towards our residential trip to Benmore in P7.

To do this, we’ll be holding a bake sale on Wednesday 23rd March.

We are looking for donations of home baking to help us in our fundraising efforts, to be brought to school on either Tuesday 22nd March or the morning of Wednesday 23rd March.

All children and school staff will have the opportunity to buy the tasty treats.

There will be a competition and prizes for the best decorated cakes with the theme of our school colours. After judging, portions of the cakes will be sold. Donations do not have be entered into the competition though.

We would greatly appreciate donations of home baking, and entries into the competition to help with our fundraising efforts.

Thank You!
