Merchiston Buddies

Every Wednesday we are visited by eight boys from Merchiston Castle School. The boys are buddied up and work with some pupils from P5, P6, and P7. They help  with  JASS awards and other work and then we take part in a variety of activities and games, both inside and outside in the playground. Twice a year the Balgreen children have the opportunity to visit their Buddies at Merchiston Castle School.

We recently visited Merchiston Castle School for a Christmas Party. We had hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows and then decorated cakes with icing and sprinkles. Once we had eaten lots of sandwiches, we played party games including Pass the Parcel and Musical Statues.

We had a fantastic time with our buddies and can’t wait to visit again in the Spring term.
