Christmas Fair 2017

A huge thank you to our amazing Parent and Carer Association who organised the Christmas Fair on Saturday. It takes a lot of hard work and organisation to plan an event like this. They were helped on the day by a number of parents who ran stalls and activities. It was great to see so many families at the Fair supporting the work of the PCA and raising funds for the school. The PCA raised £2167.70  which is an brilliant total. Thanks to everyone for making the Christmas Fair such a successful event.

On Saturday 3rd December, Santa came along to our annual Christmas Fair. The children were delighted to see him!

The fair had lots of activities and stalls and it was a great success. A thank you to all staff, parents and carers who donated to the stalls and came along to support this event. The home baking was absolutely delicious – I think we should have a school Bake Off competition!

Our Parent and Carer Association are a tremendous bunch of people. They have planned and organised this event so carefully from the beginning of term. So much hard work for them all.  They deserve a huge thank you from everyone associated with our school.

  The PCA raised over £1200.

Well done everyone.

Parent and Carer Meeting

The PCA met on Friday 16th September 2016.

Welcome

Jane Andrew our chair, welcomed about fifteen parents and carers along to the meeting.

Funding

The PCA have agreed to fund the Hopscotch panto. This will be in school on Thursday 8th December. The cost for this is £625.

Two flutes, one clarinet and a saxaphone have been purchased for the school band. This allows all P7s to learn a musical instrument if they wish. The cost for this £472.

Book Festival

Every year P2,P4 and P6 visit the International Book Festival. This means that every child has the opportunity to hear a famous author at least three times during their time in primary school. Transport costs can be high. The PCA have agreed to use some of their funds to pay for the buses. The buses cost around £325. This will mean that the Book Festival visit will be kept as low as possible.

Mud Kitchen – Nursery are installing a mud kitchen and the PCA will help with this work and costs.


Parent / Carer Concerns

Road Safety

Parents have raised concerns about irresponsible parking near the school. It is feared that this could lead to a child being seriously injured. The PCA have met with PC Tony Lawrence and will be organising a Safety Campaign after the October Break.

Bullying/Playground aggression

The school would like to work closely with parents and the community to address concerns around bullying and aggression. The school will be undertaking more work to support children to differentiate between rough play, falling out with the their friends and bullying. The school Playground Charter will be launched on 14th October. It is also planned to offer parents /carers advice on Cyberbullying.

Raising a concern

Parents can raise general concerns with the PCA but specific concerns relating to their child should be discussed directly with the school.

Craigroyston Fun Day

On Saturday 3rd September the Parent and Carer Association held a Fun Day.

There were lots of different activities and tasty food. Here are some snap shots of the day.

There was a lot of hard work organsing this event. Two of the children’s grannies gave a hand with the Fun Day and still had enough energy at the end to help with the clearing up!image

P3 Lily Sinclair had won a day’s play on a Bouncy Castle. Lily donated her prize to the Fun Day and helped raise money for the school. What a kind and thoughtful girl.
