Friends of West Barns Lottery

Dear Parent/Carer

West Barns Parent Council would like to invite you to join the Friends of West Barns Lottery.

Open to family and friends of the school, the lottery raises valuable funds for the Parent Council’s School Transport Account which subsidises the cost of transport for school trips throughout the year.  This allows pupils to participate and benefit from off-site activities. You can complete  this form and return it to a member of the Parent Council or hand it in at the school office.

Sports Day

The weather was kind this year, allowing for another fantastic Sports Day at West Barns. A huge thank you to all that came along to cheer the pupils’ on.  The staff for making it run like clockwork and everyone who helped in any way.  As always, there was some fantastic baking to enjoy with a cuppa. The sale of refreshments raised £150 which will go the benefit of the children.  A great day to be part of West Barns Primary School.

Soup Lunch

A big thank you for coming along to the Soup Lunch following the Easter Assembly. There were some tasty soups and delicious home baking to enjoy along with a cuppa.  The children enjoyed the lucky dip and the children’s raffle and there was a fantastic luxury hamper too.  All this contributed to a fantastic £300 being raised, so many thanks again.

The Parent Council will be holding a further Film Night in the school on Friday 15th June for the pupils of West Barns School & Nursery.  Doors open at 4.30 pm and the film will be screened at 5 pm.  Pupils will shortly be voting for the film they wish to be screened from an extensive list!  Snacks & refreshments will be available to purchase.  Please come along and support the West Barns School Cinema.

I think everyone will agree that the Halloween party on Thursday night was an outstanding success.  It was great to see so many pupils there enjoying all the fun & games and spooky snacks.  There were some fantastic costumes and amazing pumpkins.  As always, parents and staff worked hard to make the night such a success and nearly £200 was raised towards school funds.  A special note of thanks to Lorna Forsyth and George Campbell, whose skills made the night!

Halloween Party – Thursday 27th October 6-7.30pm

Dear Parents and Carers of West Barns Primary

The Parent Council are hoping to hold a Halloween Party on the above date in the school.  There will be lots of spooky fun & games for pupils from Primary 1 to 7 and further details will be sent home via a flyer in school bags.

We are looking for volunteers to help either in the lead up or on the night i.e. setting up the hall, making spooky snacks or playing some Halloween themed games.  If you have any spooky or scary skills please don’t be shy – you will be in much demand!  Also, you may have a skill that you may not realise we are looking for… Are you a budding DJ / Compare?  If you are able to help in any way please complete the slip below and hand it to any Parent Council member, or Lorna at the office by the 7th October.  We will then be organising ourselves in terms of who is doing what!

Your support and generosity is important as all monies raised go directly to the benefit of our children.

Thanks you for your help.
