House Logo Competition
Further to last year’s competition of pupils choosing names for the House System in school, this year’s pupil involvement/choice was for logos to be designed for the houses Duthie, Westburn, Seaton and Hazlehead. Mr Markey has met with the Pupil Council who made their decisions regarding favourite choices. These were then presented to the Parent Council today, who then narrowed the choice down further, with their favoured options. Next step is for school staff to have a voice/vote on the best designs, before winner(s) being announced.
Parent Council Membership/Recruitment Drive
Due to various circumstances, we have lost a few members of the Parent Council. We need more members for it to operate and function well in order that it represents the parent forum as best it can, reflecting the diversity of the school community. Various “recruitment events” were discussed. Further information to be given out next week to parents/carers/children.
- Treasurer update
No updates – balance and spending, etc, as before.
- PTA update
Jodie would like a list of parents/carers names, numbers and email addresses to be collated for approaching for support re fairs/other fundraising events. Again, letter and further information to be given out next week.
- Chair’s Community Update
- Date and Time of next meeting
To be confirmed
