The Parent Council consists of parents, carers and teachers who meet on a regular basis to discuss ways to improve our children’s learning and raise much needed funds for the school. Our Parent Council members are keen to stress that their focus is not just fundraising and that they are greatly involved in helping to develop and improve the school and it’s service to our children.
The Pupil Council arranges social, family orientated events to bring together parents and carers, pupils, teachers and the local community. Regular events include a fun/quiz night, Halloween disco, Christmas and Summer Fairs as well as many fundraising and performance events. Money raised by the Parent Council goes directly back to the school and pupils and we have contributed toward the cost of children attending camp, gifts and days out for Primary 7 leavers, trips to the Christmas panto, purchase of library books and SMART boards and sailing tuition for P5, P6 & P7. All this greatly enhances the children’s experience at school. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month and new members are always very welcome.

A BIG thank you to our AMAZING Parent Council for all their fundraising. Some of this funding was used this term to enable each class to go on a trip relating to their Science topic.
