It’s time to start organising The Autumn Fair

Dear Parents/Carers
SATURDAY 8 OCTOBER 2011  11.00am – 1.00pm
Yes it’s that time again!! The Autumn Fair is the school’s biggest fundraiser of the year and the proceeds go towards enhancing your child’s educational experience.  It would be great to see some new faces this year.
If you’d like to get involved in helping to organise this event please come to a meeting next Wednesday (31st) in the School – Music Room at 7.00pm.  If you’d like to help but can’t attend the meeting then please speak to your Parent Council Rep, or pass your details to the Parent Council via the school office.
Alternatively, you could just help with the setting/clearing up without committing to anything else.
We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday.
With thanks.

Parent Survey – Scottish Government’s Technology for Learning strategy

Dear Parents,

There is an opportunity for all parents and carers to influence the Scottish Government’s Technology for Learning strategy via a short survey.

Further information can be found at “Blog post at Engage for Education”:

Extract: In Scotland, we have already made significant progress with embedding technologies into everyday learning, however we need to continue to build on this.

That is why the Scottish Government is developing a Technologies for Learning Strategy that will aim to further the use of technology in learning and assessment in a practical and organised way for the benefit of Scotland’s learners and Scotland’s economic growth.

We want to find out more about how technologies are already being used for teaching and learning.  If you are a parent/guardian or a teacher/practitioner you can help us by completing a quick and easy, anonymous survey.  Your views and opinions will help us with developing the strategy.

If this is something that interests you I would encourage you to take the time to complete the survey by 27 April 2011.
