King's Park Primary School


Big KP Litter Pick

Great work at the ‘Big KP Litter Pick’

The wooded area used by the nursery children for Forest School is a lot cleaner and safer thanks to the hard work of all the parents, carers, pupils and teachers who came along to the ‘Big KP Litter Pick’ on Saturday. We pulled out a huge amount of rubbish and even managed to build a den. What a great KP Community effort!

Mrs Paterson told us all about the Forest School activities our youngest learners enjoy. She said a big thank-you on behalf of the children and added: “So great to see so many parents, children and teachers there to help.”

Ms Dinwoodie said: “The area is looking amazing and will allow the children more space to explore the when in the forest.”

A huge thank you to everyone who helped and to One Dalkeith and Midlothian Council who lent us litter picking equipment.

Thanks also to St John’s and King’s Park Church who let us use their hall to serve tea, coffee and bacon butties to the workers.

The ‘Big KP Litter Pick’ was organised by the PTA. Our role is to support Kings Park through fundraising and bringing the school community together.

Coming up

Our next events are a Coffee Morning on 2 November (9-10am) and the Christmas Fair on 7 December (time tbc).

The Coffee Morning is a chance to have a cuppa, meet other parents and talk to the Headteacher and Deputes informally. Everyone is welcome.

You can keep up to date by following us on Facebook (‘King’s Park Primary School Parent Council & PTA’) or checking the noticeboards in the School playground.
