Parent Council – shortlisted for “Parents as Parents in Learning Award”!!

Dear Dunbar PS parents,

At the end of 2012, DPS Parent Council made the following 4 nominations for the Scottish Education Awards:

1. Head Teacher of the Year Award: Helen Gillanders as for managing the
creation and operation of our wonderful two campus school so amazingly well.
2. Lifetime Achievement Award: Pam Clark, for being such a remarkable
teacher and person, whose loved by everyone.
3. Aiming High Award: Dunbar PS – after all, our school is the biggest and the best!
4. Parents as Partners in Learning Award: Dunbar PS Parent Council – we do so much, so well!

Despite our best efforts, due to intense competition, only the Parent
Council was shortlisted – we’ve made it through to the final 3 , which is
amazing. Please see the website

We’ll find out whether we’ve won at the awards ceremony in Glasgow on Monday 10 June and will let you know how we do asap!

The Parent Council has been extremely busy and due to the extraordinary hard work and dedication of many remarkable parents, had delivered lots of different activities and initiatives this school year.

Because we’ve been so busy, I’ve just not managed to produce termly newsletters as hoped.  Instead please see the attached report that I produced for the Scottish Education Award Assessors, prior to our Assessment Meeting on the 23 April 2013.  Apologies for the length but I kept it as short as possible!  Dunbar PS Parent Council Overview Report for Scottish Education Awards 2013

HUGE thanks to the parents, grandparents and pupils that spoke to the
Assessors during the 3 hour meeting.

Many thanks
