The Pencaitland Primary School met on the 3rd of November.
The Council were shown a video on Curriculum for Excellence. The minutes contain a link to the Parent Zone website for more information.
The meeting also discussed the Parent Council Action Plan as well as the issues regarding safe transit for those using the narrow footpath adjacent to the church on the way to and from school.
If you require any more information or have a topic you consider should be addressed by the Parent Council please feel free to approach one of the members to discuss.
Again, a big thank you to all parents and teachers who gave up their time or donated equipment for the Fireworks display on Saturday night. The event was a great success and has raised approximately £2,000 for the PTA. So thanks again to all involved and to everyone who braved the weather to support the event.
If you couldn’t make it, you can get some idea of what you missed from this slideshow – just add your own firework noises! (To view the slideshow full-screen use the button in the bottom right corner.)
