We are unable to store bikes in between sessions on the school premises. In previous years bikes have been stored in between sessions in our nursery hall, however this space is now a shared space used by Primary 1 and nursery children. Please speak to a member of office staff should you have any queries about this.
If any parent wishes to volunteer to support a Bikeability session please contact Miss Dunn.

Staff and pupils at Calderwood Lodge were delighted to welcome Ken Macintosh MSP to Kabbalat Shabbat last week. Every year Mr Macintosh invites our pupils to enter a Chanukah card competition. The winning cards each year are printed and given out by Mr Macintosh as his official Chanukah cards. Well done to our three prize winners Milla Marco (3rd place winner), Daniel Dotan (2nd place winner) and Gabby Rose (1st place winner). Each of our winners was given a special prize along with some printed versions of their winning entries. Mr Macintosh also left certificates for all pupils involved in this competition. Well done to all pupils involved.
Well done to all pupils taking part in the Road Safety Classroom Calendar Competition. A special mention must go to Abigail Sabba for being Highly Commended on her entry in the competition. Below you can see Abigail proudly posing with her certificate and poster.
At the Book Fair last week we were able to raise a total of £850. As a result Scholastic have given the school £500 worth of vouchers to spend on books. We will use these to add to the non-fiction section of our school library. A big thank you must go to Primary 7 for giving their free time to run the Book Fair.
Our Primary 6 class are taking part in a Kosher Rap competition, where they have been tasked with recording their own rap video, based around something that they have been learning in school. This is a national competition, so we will be competing against other schools throughout the UK. If we are successful in winning this competition we will win the chance to record our song and film with a professional recording company. This is a great chance for our Primary 6 class, and also a great chance to raise the profile of our school and our Kodesh curriculum. Please take the time to visit www.kosherrap.uk to vote for our entry. If you click to watch the videos then you will see at the beginning of the video which one is the Calderwood Lodge entry. Please encourage as many of your friends and family as possible to do this, as some of the other schools that we are competing against have a much bigger role than ours, with more children and families to rely on for votes.
Please see below for information on the next Dyslexia open meeting.
