Including donations from many supportive firms for IT equipment and our own fundraising activities, more than £16,000 came into the Parent Council in the last academic year. This was invested in maths resources, support for bereaved pupils, building blocks, sports equipment, outdoor learning resources, training for new playground activities, artists to work with pupils, chrome tablets, books and more.
The Council URGENTLY needs a new Chair and Deputy Chair to continue this great work for your children. Contact the school office or email@example.com to find out more.
The following meeting dates have been agreed in the hope a new team will come forward.
Monday September 9, Monday October 28, Monday December 2.
A special coffee morning just for P1 parents and their families, involving chat and some children’s activities, is taking place in the John Muir campus school hall on Saturday August 31 between 10.30am and 12 noon.
This is an informal opportunity to meet other people from the year. Entry is free, donations are welcome towards refreshments on the day, and there is a 25p tombola to help fund the event next year. If you are able to provide home baking or biscuits for the event please leave with the school office on Friday August 30 or bring on the day. Please join us.
AGM of Dunbar Primary Parent Council is next Monday (19 August) in the John Muir Library at 7pm. Don’t worry about being stuck in a boring meeting for hours, pop in to find out more about the school and support it and share your views. All welcome.
Helen Schoen, chair of Parent Council
