The Early Learning and Childcare team have launched an Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) Expansion Survey. They are asking for the views of parents, carers and grandparents on ELC, which will play an important role in shaping how they progress towards the roll-out of the service expansion for August 2020. They would be grateful if you could please complete the online survey:-




Cash for Kids Fun

Loirston staff members were today treated to some fun and vegan cakes baked by Northsound 1’s own Mike Mcdermid and served by both Mike and Lauren from the show.
This was to help them raise funds and awareness for the Cash for Kids campaign.
Louise Douglas from cash for kids came along too to give us some information. Many children across the North East benefit from this charity. We plan to hold some future events with our pupils.

A Free Cuppa!

There is no such thing as a free cuppa or is there…?

Loirtston Parent Council Evening Express Competition

Loirston Parent Council

Evening Express Pounds for Primaries Competition are offering £10,000 of cash prizes to give away to schools across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.

The money can be spent on whatever you think the school needs.

So maybe that’s supplies, such as pencils, pens or paper, or perhaps the pupils could really benefit from new computer equipment.

The funds can be  spent on absolutely anything that will help improve the school.

Anyone can collect the tokens too, whether it be parents, teachers or enthusiastic school councils.

A share of the £10,000 can be earned by collecting as many special tokens printed in the Evening Express from Monday September 16 to Saturday October 26.

The schools will be split into three different categories depending on their size, making the chance of collecting the cash even greater.

The top three schools with the most tokens in each category at the end of the collection period will win a share of the cash.

So keep your eyes peeled for the tokens in the Evening Express from next month and support your local primary school.
