Message from Parent Council Chair

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope you enjoyed the October break. Please see below details of forthcoming events and meetings which have been organised by Sciennes Parent Council for this term. The Camera Obscura evening event is a fantastic addition to the calendar – our thanks to Andrew Johnson (Sciennes Parent and Director of Camera Obscura) for organising this event.
We would also love to see as many pupils, staff, parents, family and friends as possible at the Playground Information Event – the playground is going to be transforming!

Best wishes,
Claire Wheeler
Chair of Sciennes Parent Council
