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-May-19
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 Thursday 10th October 2019 where we will be hosting a workshop called ‘Cost of our school day’. All parents/carers are welcome to attend. It is an opportunity to meet with other parents.
Our roles are held by the following parents –
Co-chairs – Kirsty Stoddart and Naomi Barton
Treasurer – Hilda Rankin
Secretary – Jo McKay
PiP Meetings for the rest of the school year are as follows –
**Thursday 10th October 2019* *Tuesday 14th January 2020* *Thursday 26th March 2020* *Tuesday 26th May 2020**
PiP are actively involved in fundraising for the school. Since June 2017 PiP have contributed £13,500 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 will be held in on Saturday 30th November 2019 and we are always looking for volunteers. Last years Fayre and other fund raising came to over £2500.
We also raise funds selling refreshments at Parents Evenings, Music and Drama events and are always on the look out for more volunteers to help with these. If you have a little spare time and can help to support our Community High School please email us using the address below.
