We are fortunate to have a very active Parent Council at St David’s.
The endless energy and hard work of this group has a huge impact on our school and makes such a significant difference for our learners. Thank you to all those who support our events in whatever way they can. If you wish to find out more about this group or offer your support, please speak to Mrs Jones in the School Office, make contact directly via Twitter (@stdavidsparentc) or join the Facebook Group (St David’s Primary School Parent Council).
Here are some of the highlights of this group from Session 2018/2019:
Cost of the School Day funds
The Parent Council worked tirelessly to implement a number of interventions using funds to reduce the cost of the school day. Please see the Cost of the School Day tab above to read more.
The children enjoyed their cinema nights coordinated by the Parent Council. These proved to be very popular events and were hugely enjoyed by all who attended. Thank you to the parent helpers who supported at these events.
The Parent Council also coordinated and ran all the children’s Christmas parties. These were great events which the children loved. Highlights included piñata’s, dance costumes and of course a visit from Santa!
The Parent Council continues to support us to promote healthy eating. The purchase of an industrial smoothie maker, bread machine and support to purchase a freezer enabled bread and smooth making to take place every week across the school year!
Many parents pledged their time and expertise to support Mrs Curle with our gardening and eco work. With a tremendous amount of effort and the support of Sainsbury’s volunteers, we were able to clear and overhaul our front garden! We continue to see positive developments following on from our Green Flag Award which was received 2018.
A highlight of the Parent Council calendar with Mrs Jones taking centre stage as the caller! A great event for families to come together.
For the second year in a row, 100% of our P5 pupils achieved Level 1. It was wonderful to see the pupil’s wheel around the playground and develop their confidence and skills. They have thoroughly enjoyed the course, are proud of their achievements and celebrated their successes at a family Bike Breakfast. Thanks to Dr Bike for supporting with bike checks and repairs and to Mrs Garven and Mrs Winters who have given a substantial amount of their own time to support individuals, small groups and the entire class! 100% of our P6 pupils went on to achieve Level 2, tackling roads in the local community. We are exceptionally proud of the children who lacked confidence or who hadn’t yet developed the skills to ride a bike who made such excellent progress! Mrs Garven and Mrs Winters were with them every step of the way, providing additional 1:1 lessons.
The Parent Council generously purchased Leavers Hoodies for P7. The children were thrilled with their hoodies and wore them with pride.
This team planned, coordinated, decorated and prepared a fantastic spread in May for the P4 Communicants in the church hall.
The Parent Council Team worked tirelessly to plan and setup our first Summer Fayre which was a huge success. Thank you to all those who contributed, it was lovely to see new faces offering their time and support. Thank you also to all those who worked behind the scenes to organise the day and ensure everything ran perfectly!
