PUPIL NEWS BULLETIN 

Friday 13th September 2019 

 

All Year Groups 

Could anyone wanting to enter the West Lothian Schools Swimming Heats, please fill out the sign-up sheet outside the PE base by Friday 20th September 

 

LYPP are hosting our annual Open Day on Saturday 14th September in the Vennel. Come along to The Lounge for free skateboarding with instruction, a football panna cage, face painting, games, free burgers from noon and much more. For skateboarding you will need a signed consent form, this can be collected from the LYPP Office before or on the day. Please come and join us anytime from 10am-4pm and join in the fun. 

 

Amnesty's annual Peace Party will be taking place on Wednesday 18th September to celebrate the International Day of Peace (Saturday 21st). As always, it takes place in the Assembly Hall from 1:30 and you can enjoy a 'piece and jam' while jamming to the peace playlist featuring Bob Marley, John Lennon and Marvin Gaye (among others). Channel some inner peace with our Yoga challenge and spread some peace and tranquillity with our peace chain. It's an opportunity to find out more about what Amnesty is about, what we're currently campaigning on (the threat of climate change on our human rights and the insane use of non-sustainable palm oil in our school dinners). See you there. Peace out.
