The Open Morning scheduled for Tuesday 23rd January has been cancelled for P7 only due to Mr Kingsbury being absent. This does not affect any other years and the Open Morning will go ahead as scheduled for all other classes.
Now that everyone is hopefully settled in to a new school year, we thought we would take the opportunity to let you know a little about the purpose of the Parent Council, it’s work over the past year and our plans for the year ahead. We hope that this covers most questions you might have, but please get in touch if you want to know more. Just click the link below…

Following advice from East Lothian Council, we are planning to open for all pupils on Monday 6th December. Efforts have been made to clear safe routes to school but we would recommend walking where possible, taking care due to icy pavements. If you have young children, or have concerns about their safety, make sure you accompany them on their walk to school as we cannot guarantee that school crossing supervisors will be on duty in all areas.
Although The Glebe and school car park have been cleared, the playground is still under a lot of snow so we would recommend that pupils don’t arrive before 8.45am.
Please ensure that pupils are dressed appropriately for the weather conditions and please provide them with a plastic bag (preferrably labelled) to put wellies, gloves, scarf etc. in.
If there are any changes we will update you over the weekend. For more information see the East Lothian Council website.
The May 2010 issue of the Pencaitland Parent Update is out and you can either read it here or download the PDF and read it at your leisure. There is an exclusive article which will answer many of the questions parents have about the role of the Parent Council in our Q&A, which does not appear in the print/PDF version. Other articles include a PTA UPDATE, a review of the FOCUS GROUPS: TRANSITION TO PPS AND ROSS HIGH and CURRICULUM FOR EXCELLENCE AND PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT.
