Grant Writer Needed – No Experience Necessary!!!!

The Parent Council are always looking for new ways to raise money for school projects and a couple of our members have taken on the task of writing grant applications for funding for our playground upgrades.

In order to get as many grant applications written as possible we would love somebody from our Campie Community who could take this on.

No experience necessary – just some free time to volunteer!!

Please get in touch if this is something you can help with.

P1 Families Meeting

Starting school is an exciting (and sometimes daunting) experience for children and their families (in my experience the grown-ups are the worst!).

That’s why, at Campie, we have an excellent transition programme for the children and their families to take part in to prepare for all that Primary 1 will bring.

There will be a P1 Families Evening in the school from 7pm tonight to hear all about the P1 transition and meet the team of staff who will be preparing your children and teaching them as they move into the school.

All new P1 parents and carers welcome.

(Tea and coffee will be served by some current P1 parents)

Preloved Rail

We all have growing children. Getting new uniform and getting rid of the clothes they’ve outgrown is a part of family life. To make this easier, in the Parent Room there is a supply of uniform that you are welcome to add to and take clothes from.

To become more eco-friendly (and convenient!), we are expanding our uniform swap.  Please feel free to bring any uniform, sports equipment, extracurricular uniform (brownies, scouts, dance etc) or fancy-dress clothes that you are finished with to the Parent Room. We are also looking to bring some of the clothes into the playground over pick-ups on a regular basis.

Let’s make clothes swapping a regular part of school life with the aim of increasing our recycling, tidying out our wardrobes and keeping our children in clothes that fit. All clothes will be free.

If you’re free to join the rota to get the clothes rail into the playground, please let us know when you see us at setting up. You don’t need to volunteer regularly, we’ll be grateful of any help!

Exciting News!!!

We have some VERY exciting news to share!!!!

Campie Parent Council have secured £9500 from the Common Good Fund to use for our playground plans.

The money will be used to introduce Loose Parts Play at Campie and install basketball hoops/football goals on the grassy area. The improvements should be rolled out by the Easter break.

Feels like an early Christmas present 

A huge thank you goes out to Tansy MainElizabeth Hunter and Richard Cooke who have worked tirelessly to secure this amazing funding opportunity!!!
