Halloween Party

West Barns Primary School

Parent Council

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.

Sports Day & Barbecue


The sun shone on West Barns on Friday and both events were a great success.  Sports Day included an interesting addition of a parents’ egg & spoon race!  The sale of refreshments raised £165 towards the Playground Fund.

A few hours later we were back on the playing fields!  The rain held off and we were able to enjoy the view, the company and the queue for burgers!!  A fantastic £210 was raised, which again will go towards the Playground Fund.

Thanks to everyone that helped in any way.  It was certainly a very busy day but a great day to be part of West Barns Primary School.

Have a great holiday and see you next year for some more fun events.

BBQ Update

As you will be aware West Barns Parent Council/School BBQ takes place on Friday. The signs are that the weather on Friday will be sunny and dry, so the BBQ will be taking place outdoors near the Nursery Area. In the unlikely event of rain on Friday we will still be holding the BBQ.

We thank Belhaven School for the generous use of their school charcoal BBQ.
