Message from Dunbar Primary Parent Council
Huge thank you from us to everyone for your contributions this year. The school fair raised a fantastic £3190. At our last meeting we agreed to invest £1000 in IT equipment for the school and to give every year group £100 to spend on new resources they feel they need. We also backed a request for £1000 to provide high quality, durable building blocks for the nursery and £250 for the John Muir court yard garden.
Our annual general meeting will take place on Monday August 27. All parents and carers are welcome. Look forward to seeing you there (if not before in the aisles of Asda).
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?
The next parent council meeting is Monday June 18, 7pm, John Muir library. All parents welcome. This is a nice end of year meeting, so well worth coming along if you can make it.

Easter Fun Day – Grand total raised was an amazing £445. This brings us very close to the total required for a Play Pod for the John Muir playground. Thanks to everyone who came along, helped or supported it. It was great to see the park so busy with lots of people enjoying the fun and sunshine.
School Fair – can you help support?
Planning is beginning for the school fair on Saturday May 26. Please join us at Hallhill at 7.30pm on Tuesday March 27th to brainstorm ideas.
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
