Edinburgh Tool Library Come to Balgreen Primary!

This summer we got in touch with a volunteer organisation called the Edinburgh Tool Library (ETL) to ask for help with a play space in the garden for P1. With the help of one of their team we won their volunteer’s vote and they were soon on their way to help us!

Watch these 2 videos to find out more!

Let’s Get The Job Done!

During the September long weekend, ETL’s ‘Tooligans’ came to school and got to work. This video tells the story!

Thanks to the staff who provided lunches and baking and gave up their weekend,  to Assembly Circus Hub for all the materials and to Primary 1 for trying it all out!

Most of all, we thank ETL volunteers for all their hard work!

Here are some Balgreen ‘Tooligans’ at work!

At our first meeting, we got to know each other by having a chat over a cup of coffee or tea and planned a few activities to do with our families. Amongst some of our ideas, we plan to share favourite stories, go on a bear hunt and teach each other some words in our home languages. When the children joined the adults,  we made hand collages and sang “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”.

Even if you missed the first session, you are very welcome to come and join us next week.
