The winning house this term is Burnbanks.   The children in the winning house have been informed that the House Points Prize is tomorrow, Wednesday 3rd July. They can come to school in their own clothes.  Any children with dietary requirements will be catered for.   Any P7’s can take a change of clothes for after their Leavers Assembly.

The local authority intends to re-advertise the post of Head Teacher as soon as possible.  Given this situation, a permanent appointment will not be made for the start of session 2019/20.

However, the local authority has agreed interim arrangements with the school.   Shirley Campbell-Morgan will undertake the role of Acting Head Teacher from the start of session 2019/20.

Under this arrangement Mrs Campbell-Morgan will work three days a week in the school and Mrs Pert and Mrs Hidson will deputise at other times.

I have now met with Mrs Campbell-Morgan and we have made plans to liaise further to ensure that all the necessary management arrangements are in place for the start of next session.

Thank you for your continuing support.


Your sincerely,

Colin Nicol



Just a reminder that the P7 Leavers’ Assembly will take place on Wednesday 3 July starting at 9.30am.  We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all parents and carers of children in P7 to attend the Leavers’ Assembly. After the assembly, teas/ coffees will be available until 11am in the community lounge for parents/carers.


The Parent Council would like to consult with our Parent Forum on updates to our constitution.  Please find the attached Draft constitution for your review.  We have also attached the current constitution to allow you to have a comparison. 


The reason for the update is that we are required by Aberdeen City Council to keep the constitution up to date and it has been a number of years since we have updated the constitution.


We would like to approve the draft constitution at the AGM on the 3rd of September.  We therefore ask that any feedback be emailed to us on: by 25th July 2019 to allow us to include this in the final draft to be approved.


Thank you

Your Parent Council
