We are very proud to introduce our school newspaper created by our community learning team. The pupils worked extremely hard to produce this piece of work, with special thanks to Miss Duncanson for her guidance and leadership in this area. Well done boys and girls, a fantastic effort!

The Community Learning Teams enjoyed their last session of the year this afternoon. The Citizenship Community Learning Team held a coffee afternoon to thank the many volunteers that help the school. There were performances from the Choir, One World, One Language, and the Performance Team. The cookery as a Life Skill also got involved and made delicious sandwiches for the guest. Thank you to all the people who helped to make it a success!
We had a great time celebrating World Book Day at East Craigs. Our Book Week assembly on Friday was filled with lots of different book characters! Please watch the photo collage video to see our super costumes:
Phase 2 of the rollout of a 20miles per hour (mph) speed limit goes live on 28 February 2017. The second phase is the largest construction phase in the scheme stretching from Granton to Portobello, Duddingston to Morningside, Gorgie to Murrayfield.
You can find out if your street is changing to 20mph by checking our interactive map.
The introduction of the new 20mph limit relies on signage and road markings alone. Existing speed humps or other traffic calming will remain unchanged. Larger 20mph signs will mark the entrance and exit of a 20mph area where the speed limit changes. These signs will be supplemented by smaller repeater signs or road markings with speed limit roundels.
While many cities in the UK, Europe and beyond have already brought in 20mph (or 30km), Edinburgh is the first city in Scotland to roll out 20mph limits in this way, with many other areas, including East Lothian, keen to bring in slower speeds.
Slower speeds bring many benefits to places and people. They help to reduce the risk and severity of collisions, encourage people to walk and cycle and spend more time in an area. The project extends 20mph speed limits to approximately 80% of Edinburgh’s streets, while retaining a network of roads at 30mph and 40mph on key arterial routes.
