PARENTS’ CONFERENCE: Reading – What’s my role?

The Literacy Team at Education Scotland is hosting a free conference for parents.

Once children have mastered the basics of learning to read, many parents are concerned about how best to develop their child’s skills and encourage a love of books. The conference will support parents in
helping children to successfully negotiate an information rich world and to become readers for life.

Nicola Morgan, the award-winning author, will deliver the keynote address. The conference will explore some of the perceived barriers to reading and discuss how parents can best support their children.


If there is sufficient demand, limited creche facilities may be available.

PTA Fun Run 5km route updated + Marshals still needed

In a minor change the route of the five kilometre Fun Run for Saturday 24th March has been altered.

The previous route took in the Boggs Holdings main road which lacks pedestrian footpaths. The revised route now avoids this, making it both safer and requiring fewer marshals on the day.

Click the image below for further details and to see the revised map.
