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

Thanks again for the fab team effort.

Helen Schoen, Chair.
