SCHOOL FAYRE – Saturday 25th September 2pm to 4pm

The Parent Council are organising the School Fayre which will be held at the school on Saturday 25th September 2010 from 2pm to 4pm.  We are looking for lots of volunteers to assist us in ensuring that this event is a success.

We wonder whether you can donate some time to assist with setting up on the Friday afternoon, manning a stall on the day, or with pricing goods.  Alternatively, if you work for a company which may be able to provide a donation for our raffle or funds, we would be most grateful.  We would like to hear your ideas and suggestions too.  Please come along to the meeting on 14th September 2010 at 7pm in the school if you would like to help. 

If you have any queries, please contact Gail Walshe on 07774 225901.

Many thanks.

Campaign against Airfield Open Cast Mine

The Parent Council have been asked to raise the awareness of the proposed Open Cast Mine to all parents.  As a Parent Council we have drafted a letter to lodge objections and would encourage parents to also lodge their objections individually.  A link to the group Communities Against Airfield Open Cast (CAAOC) is listed below and gives instructions on how to lodge objections.

East Lothian Council Budget Proposals 2010-13

Your response formed part of a co-ordinated campaign against such cuts, and this had the effect of schools directly avoiding the worst of the cuts for 2009/10….
