Parent Council

School Boards were abolished in 2006 and all schools were charged by the council to form a new parent body. At Currie this is called Parents in Partnership (PiP).

You can view our constitution using the following link Parent Council Constitution Jan 17

PiP meetings are held in the school from 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm.  The nights vary to allow everyone the opportunity to attend and at present, there are between 3 and 5 meetings a year.

The meetings allow you, the parents, to have the opportunity to be more involved with the education of your children and to find out about what is going on in the school. Over the years we have had various presentations that have all been appreciated by those in attendance. It’s also an opportunity for parents to bring their skills and time to the school/educational environment.

It is the parents who to dictate the way PiP is run and all parents are encouraged to become involved.

Our next meeting date is 7pm on Wednesday 17th January 2018. All parents/carers are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served and there is the opportunity to meet with other parents.

Our roles are held by the following parents –

Co-chairs – Kirsty Stoddart and Naomi Barton

Treasurer – Penny Baillie

Secretary – Susan Tait

PiP Meetings for the rest of the school year are as follows –

 * Mon 23rd April 2018* Thurs 31st May 2018*

PiP are actively involved in fundraising for the school. Since June 2017 PiP have contributed £8,500 to the school for items the school budget cannot afford. This has included white goods for Health and Food Technology and the Welfare Room, Maths text books, Clay unit for Art, Languages website subscriptions, and Support for learning reading programme subscriptions to name a few.

Our main annual fundraiser is the Christmas Fayre and Raffle. This was held on Saturday 2nd December 2017, and despite competition from many other Christmas Fayres being held on the same day we managed to raise a fabulous £1,800.

We also raise funds selling refreshments at Parents Evenings, Music and Drama events and are always looking for more volunteers to help with this. If you want to help and meet other parents/carers supporting our Community High School please email us using the address below.

 

How PiP Communicates with you –

The P7 Parents evening in June each year is an opportunity to sign up for PiP emails. Our PiP members will be in attendance to take your details and answer any questions you may have about PiP.

PiP email address is CCHSPIP@gmail.com

We also have a closed group on Facebook  called CCHS PIP. We post the minutes to our meetings and other PiP/School information on this page. Only parents of current pupils and school staff will be given access to this page.

PiP also post reminders to meetings and other information on the school website so please sign up to this to get the latest news from PiP as well as the school.
