Parent Council AGM 12/9/19

The A.G.M of the Parent Council will be held on Thursday 12th September 2019 at 6.30pm within the school. All parents wishing to come along are welcome to do so and should enter through the main entrance of the school.

The Parent Council is a combination of the old Parents Association or P.T.A. and the School Board and is recognised in law so it does have a voice. The school and the Local Authority must listen to what our Parent Council says and give it a proper response.

The first part of the meeting looks at school business and involves discussions with Mrs Callender. Topics for discussion may include Curriculum for Excellence, School Budgets or the School’s Improvement Plans.

The second part of the meeting involves the fund-raising side of the Council (the old P.T.A). Ideas are put forward for different ways that we, as a Parent Council, can raise money to benefit the pupils of the school. This can range from a School Disco to our Annual Christmas Fayre.

The meeting is a relaxed and friendly way to get involved in your child’s education. We are very keen to welcome new members. Being a member allows you to support the school in its work with the pupils, encourage links between parents, pupils and the wider community, represent the views of others and have the opportunity to meet and get to know other parents.

September’s meeting will follow on from the A.G.M, so if you have time to spare, we would love to see you there.
