It’s that time of year again – all welcome at our PTA AGM.
PTA Annual General Meeting.
Monday 2nd September, 7pm
Pencaitland Primary School (Staff Room).
If you are interested in getting involved as a PTA member or even if you would simply like to find out more about our plans for this year, we would encourage you to come along.
We also extend a very warm welcome parents new to the school, in fact a few of us (myself included) joined the PTA last year as new P1 parents. It’s a great way to meet people, get to know the school and have an impact on fundraising that will benefit your children for the whole of their time in Pencaitland Primary School.
If you can’t make the meeting, but are interested in getting involved or finding out more, please send us an email – email@example.com.
Looking forward to a great year!
PTA Chair and P2 Parent
Not joined yet? It’s never too late – you have to be in it to win it!
Funds raised are added to the school all year round as the participants take part. Anyone can join, you don’t have to be parent/carer of child in the school currently – family members can join too.
Wondering what is coming up this year? The PTA group have been busy planning and so time to open those diaries and pop these in. PTA Dates for Diary
Rise in Asthma Attacks
Did you know there is a rise in Asthma Attacks in August when pupils go back to school after their summer holidays?
Each year we see an increase in asthma attacks in children when they return to school which often result in admission to hospital.
Check out our top tips to try and avoid this happening.
Remember, asthma attacks are serious and you need to get help day or night if your child is not responding to their blue inhaler.

Congratulations to Wendy as successful applicant for our school janitor’s post, following Ronnie’s retirement.
Wendy has long been part of the school, with youngest about to start P7 and also a longstanding member of janitorial team – dedicatedly cleaning alongside colleague Christine, but now she will be an even more familiar face in and around the school day. Well done from parents and carers of PPS!
