Nursery Fun Night and P1 Disco

There are a lot of excited children this week looking forward to the Nursery Fun Night and the Primary 1 Spring Disco.

Wednesday 8th March is the Nursery Fun Night, which runs from 5.30pm until 7pm.  Refreshments will be available for Parents and Carers.  Please be aware that no siblings will be allowed to stay at this event. We would really appreciate donations of Raffle Prizes and Homebaking and these can be dropped off on the day.

Thursday evening is the P1 Disco, doors open 6pm, pick up at 7.30pm.

There’s still time to get tickets for both events.

We would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

Hopefully everyone had a good time over the Christmas holidays and you are ready for another busy term ahead. Our school and nursery newsletters go out soon – please take time to read the newsletters as there will be lots of useful information included.

PTA AGM Monday 5th September 2016 6.30pm

We would like to invite all parents and carers along to our AGM this Monday the 5th of September.  It will be in the GP room in the school at 6.30pm and should last about an hour. We will, as usual, have some lovely homebaking, some warm drinks and a friendly welcome.

The PTA or Parent Teacher Association to give us our full name, are made up of a group of parents and a teacher, Miss Lorna McDonald from the nursery. We meet up every 6 weeks or so and organise  social events and fundraisers for the school e.g. school discos, Pub Quiz, Calendar, Festival Café.  Each year we raise around £5000 which pays for such things as coaches for school trips, reading book bags, cameras for classrooms, mud kitchens, Christmas trees, playground equipment etc.

We are always looking for new members, you don’t have to come to every meeting or help at every event and if childcare is a problem you can bring them along too.

You can contact us at haddingtonpta@gmail.com and check the notice board or school website for upcoming events and meetings.

We look forward to seeing you soon…….
