The parent council is a group of mainly parents and staff who represent the whole school. The activities we get involved in include:-
Raising issues on behalf of parents/carers with the school management, the local authority and local councillors
Arranging pupil parties eg Halloween Disco
Organising fundraising events
Discussion on the building of the new school
Over the years, our fundraising activities have made a huge contribution to the school paying for both treats for the pupils and equipment for the school. Examples include funding the set-up of the new school website, paying for updated reading and spelling schemes, purchase of educational software, buying an "e beam" and laptop, providing funds for a theatre company to put on a pantomime in the school and paying for strips for the school football teams.
Four members of the parent council have resigned as their children have moved onto High School. Another 2 will be leaving next summer for the same reason. We need 6 new members. If we don't get enough parents to join, the parent council will close and the fundraising and school discos will no longer happen.
We are especially keen to attract parents of pupils in P1 – P3 as there is currently no representative parent for pupils in these classes.
Our meetings are very light hearted and informal. You are only committed to as much as you want to volunteer for. Some of us have been involved in the parent council since it was founded and have a lot of experience to pass on.
