Parent Council Meeting: Tuesday 23rd May

The Parent Council is a friendly group of parents/carers which supports the school in its work with parents – consulting with and reporting to the wider parent audience.  The Parent Council plays a key role in representing the views of parents to the Head Teacher, East Lothian Council and Education Scotland and promotes contact between the school, parents, pupils, nursery education providers and the community.  Fancy getting involved?  Our next meeting is on Tuesday 23rd May at 7pm within the School’s Staff Room.  You can also email

Haddington Festival Cafe, Tuesday 30th May 2017 10am – 2pm, The Corn Exchange, Haddington

This year the PTA will be running the Festival Café as part of The Haddington Festival on Tuesday the 30th of May.  Its a huge fundraiser for the school and we always look for and get lots of support from parents and carers.  The children get very excited at going up to the Corn Exchange for their lunch and it involves them in the Festival. Here’s what you need to know….

  • Pre-order lunch forms

    Please return these by Friday 19th May. On the day of the café your child will receive a voucher which you bring to the collection are and get your lunch bag.  You are responsible for getting your child to and from the café (and during the café) and have to let the school know who is picking them up. Adults can order lunch bags too. Information about collection times will be sent out in due course.

  • Volunteers

    Without lots of help we can’t run the café. If you can help on the day, or before, there are lots of jobs to be done. Please fill in the volunteer form and hand it in to the office.  You can also leave a message with the office, email the PTA or message us on Facebook.  Meet new people, get some good chat and there’s tea/coffee and cake for helpers.  All are welcome, grandparents, parents, friends etc.  You don’t have to help all day, even just an hour at the start, end or over the busy lunchtime period would be a huge help.

  • Baking
  • Baking
  • Baking…….. we need lots and lots of baking. Please. (no nuts) You can leave this  at the Corn Exchange from 8.30 am or at the office on the day at drop-off.
