Parent Council Update


Dear Parents,


I don’t know whether or not you are aware, but you are all actually members of the Parent Council by definition, because you have a child at the Academy. As a parent, attending the Parent Council meetings is often the only way we find out what’s going on in the school – our children are not always willing to tell us! In a typical school year, we only actually have 7 Parent Council meetings. Of course the dates don’t always work for everyone but that’s the good thing about these meetings – it doesn’t matter if you have to miss some of them; your input is still valuable when you can attend.


We’re keen to attract more people for the 2014/ 2015 school year so if you want to find out more, please come along to our AGM on Wednesday 3rd September, 2014. I know some people think we might be a “cleeky” bunch, but we’re not at all, and are doing this ultimately because we care about the education and welfare of our own children. We don’t expect a huge commitment from anyone, just want to get some new people coming along, especially parents of the new S1 pupils.


The remaining meetings for the 2014/ 2015 school year are as follows:


Wednesday 5 November 2014

Tuesday 9 December 2014

Monday 2 February 2015

Wednesday 11 March 2015

Wednesday 6 May 2015

Tuesday 16 June 2015


Hope to see you soon!
