We are now in to our second week back after the Christmas holiday and there is much going on. As parents, you may be aware that there is a process of consultation ongoing at the moment in relation to empowering schools. I have attached this document for your reading. This consultation closes on 30th January; however, ELC consultation closes on 21st Jan in order that the council can analyse the feedback and prepare a response prior to the 30th Jan.
I have also attached a slide show that provides information in relation to the consultation and how you may feedback your thoughts.

The class calculated the total revenue from the sale of orchard chutney, jams and christmas trinkets. After expenses, which we paid back to Mrs Campbell, we were happily left with a healthy profit…
We will now decide as a class how to spend this money… early suggestions are giving to charity, equipment for the playground or a school trip! Thanks to everyone who supported our Christmas fair, we hope you enjoyed the fruits of P 6/7’s labor!
