Cockenzie Primary PTA
There will be an Annual General Meeting for the Cockenzie Gala Committee on Wednesday 24th September at 7.00pm in Port Seton Community Centre.
The Gala is an important part of the village’s heritage and is enjoyed by many children throughout the school. In order for this historic event to continue again this year it is vital that we have support from the local community. Many of you will remember having older children take part in the Gala, or indeed being involved in it yourself.
The Committee are looking for approximately 16 people to be involved with planning and fundraising throughout the year. The more helpers we have the better - more hands make lighter work as they say! It will also help us forge stronger links between the school, the Community Centre and wider community in general.
If you are able to attend all or part of the meeting and feel that you might have some ideas / services / skills to offer (no matter how small), we would be delighted to see you at the meeting.
The Primary One trial lunch will take place this Friday 29th August at the following times:
If you/your child has opted to trial the school lunch, please arrive for the appropriate time (noted above) by the main door. We would be obliged if you could leave school by 12.10pm.
Primary 7 uniforms are now available for collection from the school, having arrived on Friday afternoon. You can pop into school first thing on Monday or pupils can collect them from the dining room during morning break. Once again we apologise for the delay.
