Dunbar PS Parent Council Overview Report for Scottish Education Awards 2013
A HUGE thanks to the parents, grandparents and pupils that spoke to the Assessors during the 3 hour meeting on behalf of the school and Parent Council. WE are very fortunate to have such motivated and dedicated people in Dunbar.
The sun shone and the crowds came and a fantastic school fair was had by all.
We would like to say a very BIG thank you to all the teachers involved both in preparing in class for the big day and those who were able to come along and help on Saturday. The year group stalls were a great addition. Special thanks to Miss Eeles and Mrs Brennan for coordinating the staff and pupil’s stalls.
We would especially like to thank all the Parent Council members and other parent helpers who gave up their own time to help set up on Friday and Saturday.
A very special thanks to the parents, children and community of Dunbar for turning up on such a glorious day to support our school. You helped raise over £3,500 for your children. Well done to you everyone.
