Victoria Primary School of Fish

December 2021

To mark the move from our current building in Newhaven Main Street to our new school in Windrush Drive, we are going to create an art installation entitled “The School of Fish!”.

We have 177 wooden fish cut out – each one representing a year that this school has been operational. We are inviting community partners, former pupils and supporters of the school to decorate the fish so that we can then display them on the fence of this school and our new school.

Every child on our school role will decorate a few metal fish which will swim alongside the wooden ones! There will be 2 124 metal fish, each one representing a month that the school has been operational.

If you are a former pupil or staff member, a community partner or a supporter of our school and would like to decorate a wooden fish, then please call into the school office, phone us on 0131 476 7306 or email us on admin@victoria.edin.sch.uk.


Looking for another fun craft? Artist and project manager Johnathan Elders @www.thelasergarden.com, with help from Dora (artist and professional six year old), have created an easy and enjoyable 'Puppet Craft'.

Don't forget to send us photographs to share with the community.

Men's Shed Workshop 

Welcome to the first of The Heart of Newhaven's partnership productions!

The Heart of Newhaven is committed to working together in partnership with local groups. This one has been produced by Charlie from the Men of Leith’s Shed. 

We hope it will whet your appetite for more to come, as we try to share some traditional, and maybe even non-traditional skills with everyone. 

We believe that working together we can produce more than the “sum of the parts” and although it is a challenge to work together virtually, we are all learning as we go. Older and younger people have much to learn from each other!

We hope that everyone will enjoy watching and learning how to “make things” and we would love to see photos when you’ve finished and whether it was a present, who for and what they thought of it!

We would appreciate your feedback and comments, should you wish and if you have any ideas for more, or perhaps can offer a similar type of video, please get in touch with us at admin@heartofnewhaven.co.uk.
