Parent Council

 

Welcome to the Bonnyrigg Primary School Parent Council!  Every parent/carer is welcome to come along to the meetings – it’s a great opportunity for you to hear about what’s coming next in the school, to influence, change or to speak to other parents and/or the Headteacher.

Our Parent Council chair is Colin Wilkinson, who was elected in April 2016.  The role of Deputy Chair is shared by Susan Henderson and Justine Jones, who were elected in April 2017.

You can contact us by emailing bonnyriggpsparentcouncil@hotmail.com  or by messaging us on our Facebook page.

Over the past 18 months we have:

  • Represented parents on the selection panel interviewing for the Deputy Head Teachers Positions
  • Discussed the schools communication and how it can be improved
  • Previewed the new Parent Pay system, which will be released in November 2017
  • Suggested and implemented improvements to the running of Sports Day
  • Encouraged the “Persevered” tour – which was a great lesson to the children in never giving up
  • Introduced a number of guest speakers including Councillors, covering topics such as Housing Development, School intakes and Catchment areas

We also have a Fundraising Group which meets generally on the last Friday of every month, Sarah Beck leads this and has done a fantastic job in organising Spring and Halloween Discos and the Christmas Fair among other things such as online auctions.

The money raised from these events have allowed us to fund:

  • Upgrades to the school playground
  • The P6 trip to the Christmas Panto
  • The Fun Day
  • New gym equipment
  • The book bags given to every new pupil

 

We aim to do a lot more in the coming months but to do this we need our membership to grow……
