Please note that from Monday 14th January for 2-3 weeks there will be essential roadworks taking place on Harvest Drive. This will mean that Harvest Drive will remain closed during this time. We have been in touch with the bus company so that they are aware of this.

P6/7 spent a fun-filled afternoon at Craigmount High School for an Hour of Code where they wrote their own dance algorithms for Marty the Robot using Scratch software. They also enjoyed learning how to write code using ‘Code Monkey’. The children proved that Hillwood has plenty of budding computing talent so watch this space!
Thank you to everyone who helped make Hillwood’s Christmas Fair a huge success. It was fantastic to welcome members of the community through our doors to enjoy home bakes, face painting, tombola, children’s crafts and much more. The event has already raised an incredible amount of money which will fund a trip to the panto for the whole school!

We had a special visitor in school this afternoon and we raised over £80 selling Pudsey cakes, key rings and wristbands. More excitement to look forward to on Friday!!
P5/6/7 were given the opportunity to make their mark on Edinburgh Airport! We took part in a hoarding competition, using our Scottish landmark research to design, draw and paint some eye-catching boards.
Hillwood’s Gardening Action Group were lucky winners of the ‘One Planet Picnic Pocket Garden’ competition with their beautiful sensory garden promoting peace and justice. They were invited to realise their design at this year’s Gardening Scotland event – Well done!
