Our parent council have been working hard over the past few months to draw up a new constitution. It sets out our aims and responsibilities as well as defining the detail of how we go about our business.
We had an excellent P7 Transition Information Evening last night at KHS. (June 6th).
Mrs Daniel, Mrs Davie, and Mr Leadbeater and the guidance staff ran an excellent information evening. I had a chance to promote the work of the Parent Council and our banner was proudly displayed at the front of the assembly hall.
We also handed a flyer to every family present, and I’ve attached a link to it here.
This is an important consultation given the changes that could be brought about in how, and where, decisions about education are taken.
I encourage all parents to read the consultation and to give their responses both on the government’s official response website, but also to feedback to the parent council. So that the Parent Council can also submit a response based on the feedback we gather representing the parent body. The more representation we get, the louder our voice is heard.
Jacqui MacDonald (Chief Education Officer, EDC) is hoping to prepare some guidelines on the most important parts of the review for us to concentrate on. I will post a link to that as soon as I get it.
The government is requesting responses from anyone involved in education: Parents; Professionals; Practitioners; Parent Councils; Schools; Authorities etc.
In May 2016 at the East Dunbartonshire Parent Forum meeting David Radford, (Health Improvement & Inequalities Manager from East Dunbartonshire Health & Social Care Partnership) and his colleagues Nicky Coia and Jill Wilson made a presentation on Sexual Health and Parenting.
