Games @the Hub

IMG_0301

P6/7 enjoyed a lovely sunny day at Forrester/St. Augustine’s High School for Games at the Hub where the group split into two groups for hockey and football. For the first half of the day, the children rotated around different activities to build up their skills, and then after lunch took part in a tournament.  No trophies this year but a great opportunity to keep fit and to meet children from other schools.

WORLD BOOK DAY

We did it!! As part of our World Book Day celebrations, Hillwood pupils took part in a worldwide Bumper Book Quiz in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people taking part in a book quiz. With 6,388 people, in 62 locations across the world (including Hillwood!) all quizzing at the same time, we successfully broke the record – well done!

Read all about it on the World Book Day site here.

Burns Supper

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Hillwood’s Burns Supper this week, we had a fantastic turn out with children and adults both enjoying a burl across the dancefloor. A huge congratulations to Calvin who won both the Burns Poetry Competition and the raffle! Well done also to Lucie, Warren and Morgan who were this year’s runners up.

Thank you also to our community members who helped to support the supper. The fantastic ceilidh band, Ceilidh Caleerie, delivered a brilliant performance (as usual!); haggis from Boghall Broxburn Butchers; donations from Morrison, Tesco and Sainsbury; and of course delicious potatoes supplied and prepared by Sophie’s parents. Thank you!

The Scottish theme continues today with Primary 6/7’s Community Café. Why not pop down at 10am to enjoy a bowl of lentil soup or stovies? Entry is £1 – see you there!
