Buidhnean Phàrant ~ Parent Groups

There are a number of parent groups working on behalf of the parents to support the school, the pupils and their families. If any of these groups are of interest to you, get in touch, they’d be happy to hear from you.

If you’d rather avoid Facebook, please email chairs@parantantaobhnapairce.org.uk and we’ll put you in touch.

Have an idea for a group of your own? Come and chat with us about it!

Events and Fundraising

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1320954044740615/

One of the main aims of the Parent Council is to raise funds to support the school is its extracurricular activities, additional learning resources, school trips etc…

Parents organise a range of events throughout the year, including Summer & Christmas Fairs, Cinema Night, Halloween Disco, Ceilidhs and Concerts. Many heads are better than some when it comes to ideas and this group fosters and focuses them.

There are also a number of fundraising initiatives in place: 

The fundraising lottery is a fun and effective way to raise money for our school. Each ticket enters you into two draws every week – a guaranteed cash prize for one of our supporters, plus a jackpot prize draw for £25,000. For more information or to sign up, go to:

Many heads are better than a few and all ideas are welcome!

Lost Property Group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2295640150752383/

TnP has a wide catchment and there are some parents who never make it on to school grounds for drop off or pick up; if an item is lost it could be weeks before it’s noticed. A group of parents run the lost property group for the benefit of all. 

Every Friday they post on Facebook and ParentMail with a list and photos of lost items. Lost items can be claimed at any time by parent or child from the lost property area just inside reception.

It’s a shared task, if you can spare a couple of hours every month to help out, this group would love to hear from you.

Mental Health & Well-being Group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2253713804737933/

This group is for parents who’d like to support the school in ensuring good mental health and well-being for our pupils.

In this group, parents share ideas and explore initiatives and strategies that could help the school deliver a successful mental health plan.
