Leithers Don’t Litter

Lorne’s eco group were delighted to attend the Zero Waste Leith launch party in conjunction with Changeworks. We listened to lots of different guests speakers discussing how the organisation can help our local community to reduce litter, flytipping and food waste, and inspire more recycling, repairing and reusing.
During our evening we got to taste lots of different food from cafes and restaurants in our local community. We were able to look round the different stalls and very much enjoyed playing a recycling sorting game.
Finally we noticed at one stall, that we could adopt a street, a programme run by Leithers Don’t Litter. Naturally there was only one street for us; Lorne Street! We are looking forward to doing our very best and making sure our street is litter free.

We have also appointed a Principal Teacher to Lorne Primary School. Mr Mark Aitchison will teach Primary 5 four days a week and focus on development work across the school one day a week. We are very much looking forward to welcoming him to the staff team on Monday 19th February.

 

McCoo Appear in Lorne

The children in Primary 1 have been learning about the artwork of Steven Brown, in particular his Highland Coos and created these fantastic, colourful coos which the artist himself thought were amazing. Well done.
