Golden Ticket Assembly

On just our second week back at school after the summer holidays, Edenside hit the headlines after we welcomed local councillors, other VIPs, Radio Borders and photographers from the local press to our Golden Ticket Assembly! Our guests enjoyed poetry recitations from P7 and P5, a beautifully decorated hall and even our very own “Borders Railway” song (beautifully accompanied by P3 performers).

The high point of our assembly was when our very own Charlie Bucket, Aidan Whitson from P6T, found the Golden Ticket in his chocolate bar. Scott Shearer (P5R), Callum Moffat (P2/3) and Jamie Hume (P3C) were also delighted with their silver star book token awards! The rest of the children in the school were equally happy with their delicious bar of “Cocoa Black” chocolate and many children are planning trips on the Borders Railway soon.
