This year’s school summer fair raised £3190 for the school

Delighted to reveal that this year’s school summer fair raised £3190 for the school. That is clear profit, not takings, and a lovely sum to be able to invest in Dunbar Primary. Please come to the parent council meeting next Monday (John Muir campus library, 7pm) and share your thoughts on where you might like to see money spent. We will also talk about ideas for next year. What would you like to see discussed at our meetings? What would you like us to organise? Any feedback on this year’s fundraising?

Update from Dunbar Primary Parent Council

EASTER FUN DAY – SATURDAY 24 MARCH

 Update from Dunbar Primary Parent Council

Thank you for supporting our fundraising. We have been able to give the school almost £1000 for library books across the two sites as a result. Another £200 has bought books in French and German to enhance foreign language teaching and £350 has been given to a programme which supports children who have to deal with difficult experiences such as bereavement.

At our last meeting we also agreed to help fund improvements to the John Muir Campus courtyard garden.

On Saturday March 24, between 1pm and 4pm, we are running a little Easter Fun Day at Lauderdale Park. Please drop in and look out for details of the egg colouring competition which will be coming home in school bags.

And if you haven’t already, write school fair in big letters on the afternoon of Saturday May 26th on your calendar.

 

Many Thanks, Helen Schoen, Chairperson,  Parent Council

 

Update from Dunbar Primary Parent Council

Update from Dunbar Primary Parent Council.

Thank you for supporting fundraising for the school this term. Your contributions have been fantastic.

The collection of unwanted clothing through Rag Bag raised £373 for the school. Sales of Christmas cards raised £942 and the 2018 calendar featuring pupils’ portraits will bring in around £1800.

The school Christmas fair also raised just under £2000, with the auction featuring the signed books obtained by pupils at Lochend making £600.

So at our first parent council meeting of 2018, on Monday January 15 at 7pm in the John Muir campus library, we will be able to spend some of that money on things the school has said they need. This includes investing in the school libraries.

Do come along to share your thoughts and think about what we do next.

If you are doing any last minute online Christmas shopping remember you can also raise a bit of money for the school by clicking through easyfundraising.org.uk.

Thanks again for the fab team effort.

Helen Schoen, Chair.
