The Parent Council would like to thank everyone that came along to support our fabulous festive fayre. It really was the place to be on Saturday morning! Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen in any way and a special note of thanks to Dunbar Lyric Group for their superb carol singing. Congratulations to those who won prizes in the raffle and commiserations to those who tried hard to win those illusive bottles of wine! An amazing £1,400 has been raised which will go directly to benefit the pupils.
Just to remind you that the Christmas Fayre is on Saturday at 10am – 12 noon. Please come along and enjoy some festive fun. There are some fantastic raffle prizes to be won. West Barns Parent Council would like to thank everybody who has donated towards our fabulous raffle.
Raffle tickets are now on sale from any member of the Parent Council. As always, we have some some fantastic prizes to be won and would like to thank those businesses who have donated so generously towards the raffle.

The next meeting of the Parent Council will be on Wednesday 20th November at 7.15 pm in the school. Everyone welcome.
Parents at National Parent Forum of Scotland (NPFS) Focus Groups and events have been telling us that they wanted more information that explained the stages and progression through Curriculum for Excellence. We are pleased that the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning, Michael Russell, is listening to parents and responding. The NPFS were happy to work alongside Scottish Government to produce the Learner Journey and Leaflet. It shows the commitment and determination of everyone involved to take account of the views of parents and to keep them informed. We would encourage all parents to read it and ask their teachers what it means in their school, for their child.”
