Looking for Donations for PiP fundraising events

PiP have a few school events coming up in a few months and we will be fundraising for the school at these events – Raffle at the school show, Christmas Raffle and Christmas Fayre.

So we are asking for donations of food/drink/unwanted gifts/Christmas items. Whatever you can give will be gratefully received.

Please hand in items you want to donate to the School Office during school hours or via your child if they are at the school.

Remember, all money raised at these events are invested back into the school.

Many thanks

PiP Team

Hockey Expert/Coach needed

Currently the school does not have anyone that can coach the after-school hockey teams S1 to S6. The active schools coordinator is looking for a few parents to do this otherwise they will not be able to offer Hockey as an option this year.

If you are interested please drop Craig an email (Craig.Newport@ea.edin.sch.uk)  or call the school  on 449 2165.

Please note that PVG disclosure, paid for by the school, will be processed if you are able to help with this.

CCHS Christmas Fayre Sub-committee meeting

All Parents/Carers are invited to come along to the first meeting of the Christmas Fayre sub committee.
This will take place on Thursday 21st September at 6.30pm in the Conference room (off the staff room on the first floor) at the High School.

Some of the things we would like help with are –
Parents to reach out to local/large businesses for raffle donations for our Christmas Raffle
Ideas for PiP stalls
Organisers and volunteers for the day so that we only need to ask volunteers to help for 1 hour.

All support and help would be greatly appreciated, so even if you can’t make the meetings but want to help just let me know.

Many thanks

Susan Tait PiP Secretary

CCHS Car Park

Please can I remind all Parents/Carers not to use the school car park when dropping off /picking up pupils. This is especially true between 08.15 to 09.00 and 15.15 to 15.45 as the car park is very busy with the Woodlands traffic at those times and should not be used at all for drop off or pick up.

Your co-operation is much appreciated.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine

NHS Lothian is aware that an email, questioning the safety of HPV vaccine is circulating within Scotland, having been emailed to at least some local authorities and secondary schools. The letter contains a number of important inaccuracies.

The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine for girls aged 11 to 13 years helps protect
against cervical cancer.

The HPV vaccine is offered to girls at secondary schools across Scotland. Millions of girls worldwide have now received the vaccine and rigorous evidence shows it to have an excellent safety profile, meeting the high safety standards required for it to be used in the UK and other European countries.

S1 and S2 girls at Currie Community High School will be offered the vaccination in June 2018.

Further information on HPV vaccine is available at
http://www.immunisationscotland.org.uk/vaccines-and-diseases/hpv.aspx

Please do contact NHS Lothian should you have any further concerns.

Yours sincerely
Dr Richard Othieno
Consultant in Public Health Medicine
