  1. You should all have received two update e-mails following on from the meeting on Thursday. I have had some difficulty in reading some details and if you have not received any e-mail could you send your correct details to me at

    I am handing in another 89 letters to haddington today. Don Ledingham is apparently “on our side” and it has been suggested that he may make a “global” response which could be placed on the school website. I would, following feedback received for parents, propose that this course of action , IN THIS INSTANCE ONLY is acceptable. However there are those parents who have added comments to the letter or indeed who have written their own letters who should still receive individual replies. Parents have taken the trouble to write and a reply should be expected. It is important to show the strength of feeling of the parent body and it appears as if notice has been taken at the Council.
    Following the meeting the MSP has been in correspondence showing suport, the Scotsman had a piece in the education supplement on Wednesday 23rd and two School Councils have contaced me to get advice on how to galvanise their parents into similar action.
    I thank you all once again for the incredible response generated and the School Council will continue to press our case for no cuts at Stoneyhill.

  2. Next school council meeting at Thursday 15th May 2008 at 7pm.
    Any items for agenda to be e-mailed to

    I would like to remind parents of the school policy regarding raising items of concern. In the first instance parents should telephone the school and ask to speak to the class teacher or the DHT and HT.
    Any items which the parent body would like raised at SC level should be via e-mail to either me or the school.

    We will contine to press Haddington re cuts imposed at 1.5% in year 1 and 2.25% in years 2 and 3, which will still have an effect on staffing and resources.

  3. I would like to extend an invitation to all parents and carers who could offer a particular skill set or have an interest or hobby which they feel may be of interest and benefit to the children or the school.
    Examples could be some one who plays an instrument, does gardening, keeps reptiles etc.
    The aim would be to compile a list of people willing to help on an as and when basis and would in no way tie you in to a long term committment.

    please advise by contacting me on

  4. On behalf of the School Council I woull like to extend a huge thank you to all parents of new P1 pupils who attended the induction this morning. It was nice to meet you and to have the opportunity to outline the basic workings of the SC. I hope that some, if not all of you, will actively contribute to the smooth running of the school.

  5. The first meeting of the new school year will take place on the 11th September 2008. I would like to extend a huge welcome to ALL parents to attend what will be a very short meeting followed by refreshments and a chance to have an informal chat with the School Council.
    The Parents and Friends Group play an enormously important part in the school life, and its activities are mainly in the fund raising area. They are an integral part of the School Council and are always looking for parents to help out either on a one -off or more frequent basis. Members of the group will be in attendance at the meeting.
    The first meeting will give Parents an opportunity to raise any issues or concerns and will help to shape the way future meetings are arranged . There will also be the opportunity to view the annual feedback document which informs the parent body of the happenings and achievements of the School Council over the past academic year .

    Please feel free to contact me on 07860210757 ( during work hours)or 0131 653 6904( after 7pm)

    We hope to continue to put pressure oh ELC re school cuts and will take soundings as to how to proceed. Please attend if possible.

    It has been announced that the predicted budget cuts are now to be substantially reduced in their impact on the school to such an extent that there should now be no surplus staffing declared for the next financial year and this will allow our children to further develop in a climate of continuity and stability.

    I would like, on behalf of the parent body, to thank all of you who took the time to write to Haddington on this matter and we have had it confirmed by our Councillor, that parent power has made a difference.


  9. The following is intended for anonymous publication, since it will no doubt apply to more than just ourselves.
    June 15, 2009

    We wanted to write to thank the teachers and all staff at Stoneyhill nursery.
    for the dedicated care of the youngsters coming under their supervision – in our case
    over several years, since we have had two grandchildren fortunate enough to
    have been pupils there.

    Now that the final term for the younger one is drawing to a close, it is
    time to say how much we appreciated the instruction and learning both
    youngsters have enjoyed and to express our confidence that it will prove a
    sold foundation for their future development in school and beyond. We believe that the
    good citizenship training they’ve received at Stoneyhill will remain as they grow up.

    Apart from day to day classroom work, we also enjoyed having glimpses of them
    taking part in special events and outings which must have involved
    many hours of preparation and planning to ensure a safe outcome. How fortunate we / the parents
    / the youngsters are to have been able to rely on such
    commitment to those young minds developing under your care. We
    were always confident that leaving the children in your care meant they
    would be treated with professional attention and consideration at all
    times. The happy relationships they both built up with yourselves and the other nursery
    children stand as a credit to the dedicated input from their teachers.

    We were privileged to have enjoyed this experience
    and wish you and your colleagues every success as you help new generations
    of youngsters in the years to come.

    With sincere thanks,

    “Grateful grandparents”

  10. Can I thank on behalf of the School Council , all who have contibuted to the running of the school over the past year. Please feel free to drop in to any of the meetings held or to offer your services on an ad hoc basis. All help and support is appreciated.

    The SC aims to have 2 parent representatives from each class and vacancies are available. Should you wish to become involved and to have a say in how the school operates and to have a more direct input into your child/childrens experience in the school, please contact me on either or
