Our next parent Council meeting is on Monday 13 November at 6.15pm in the school. Minutes from the last meeting are now on the website here. Huge thanks to Sarah for taking the minutes for me.
If you have agenda items for the meeting please get in touch!
Here are some updates since we last met..
Halloween Fun – Thanks to everyone who came along to the Halloween party, It was a great night and we raised over £1000! A special thanks goes to the volunteers on the night and the local shops and businesses who supported the event with donations – this includes Tesco, Sainsbury’s Morrison Street, Co-op, and the guys from Starbucks who ran the café!
Thanks also to Mairi and everyone who helped out with the raffle in Sainsbury’s and Blackrock (including the very well behaved kids!), this was hugely successful raising over £2000! Winning tickets are on the ‘Friends of’ website.
Playground and pavement improvement – Since our last meeting we have also seen garden improvements thanks to Kay and volunteers from the Hilton Grosvenor, the pavement at west tollcross has been upgraded – thanks to Parent Council lobbying and the old climbing frame is finally gone!
Travel Survey – Finally you will also be receiving an email about a school travel survey. Please, please, please find a few minutes to complete it. We know that many parents have concerns about road safety but we need to the council to hear it loud and clear if anything is to change. So fill it in and spread the word. Here is the link – https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/tollcross-primary-travel-survey/
Vote for us in the Aviva Community Fund – Huge thanks to Laura who submitted the playground project to the Aviva Community Fund competition. We have 443 votes already please vote and show your support!
Have your Say – School holiday dates – The council have begun the process of determining term time dates for 2019/20 and beyond, and are interested in YOUR views on the matter.
