Our fantastic Parent Council Events and Fundraising Group (EFG), (this year ably led by Fran Armour), organises and runs our annual whole school Winter Fair and Summer Fair events. We are most fortunate to be able to draw upon the incredible support of a huge wealth of parental and local community talent, experience and expertise to provide all the fabulous fun of the fair for our children, as well as raising funds for the school.
Parents Take the Lead
Over the last few years, EFG parents have taken the lead in arranging exceptional and ambitious Themed Fairs: Science Fair (Aileen Nimmo), International Fair (Charlotte Herthelius) and World of Work Fair and Year of Young People Fair (Jay Santhanham), supported by Chairs of the Parent Council, Claire Wheeler, Aileen Nimmo, Kristel Torokoff and Phoebe Cochrane as well as an army of parent volunteers. Each event provided apt, relevant and outstanding support to the school improvement aims of the school each year.
Pupils Take the Lead
In celebration of The Year of Young People, P6/7 pupils took the lead at the Winter Fair and P4/5 pupils took the lead at this year’s Summer Fair in 2017-2018
