The National Parent Forum of Scotland

The National Parent Forum of Scotland has been working with Skills Development Scotland as part of the programme of work underway in Developing the Young Workforce. We are pleased to have produced some tailored information for parents, as part of our successful “in a nutshell” series, which covers the new Careers Education Standard launched at SLF 2015. This new nutshell will supply parents with basic information about the initial role of this programme in schools and signpost them to where they can get some more information if they need it.

Invitation to the Blessing of the Nativity Scene and Carol Service

Message from Sir Tom Farmer:

As last year was such a success, we are returning to St. Andrew’s Square Gardens on the East side of George Street, Edinburgh to celebrate the start of the Christmas season in Edinburgh.

This popular event brings together people from all denominations and will include carol singing led by the Exile Gospel Choir and of course everyone who comes along joins in for the launch of the advent Christmas Calendar.

This is the thirteenth year we have held this service and we will be joined by The Most Reverend Leo Cushley, Archbishop of St. Andrew’s & Edinburgh, Bishop John Armes, Dean of Edinburgh Diocese, Dr Karen Campbell, Moderator, Presbytery of Edinburgh, The Reverend Tony Bryer, City Centre Workplace Chaplain and Donald Wilson, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, who will join together in prayer and a blessing.

Please see the attached.

Sports Day 2016

We have recently been advised by St David’s High School that the P7 transition visits will be on 8th and 9th June 2016 and as such clashing with our intended Sports Day.  Sports Day will therefore be re arranged and the new date confirmed in due course.
