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 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.

Easter Monday Fun raised more than £700, thanks to everyone who made it possible

Thanks everyone who made Easter Monday fun possible. Fabulous team of volunteers, great support from local businesses, including BeGreen who helped fund the archery and Dunbar Fire Service who did a brilliant job helping with the egg drop survivor challenge. Thanks too to Muddy Buddies for their brilliant contribution and all those who came and joined in. Lovely, too, to have the Lauderdale Park cafe in action. There’s a couple of small expenses to take care of but it looks like we took more than £700. Great news for Dunbar Primary.

Prize winners will be notified. Continue reading Easter Monday Fun raised more than £700, thanks to everyone who made it possible
