We had a fantastic night last year and we are looking forward to seeing lots of families there again this year.
Thank you for your continued support.
Giffnock Primary Parent Council.
All parents are warmly invited to pop along to our informal Parent Council Meeting in school. We are looking for new ways of getting parents further involved in our school.
We look forward to seeing you for a “Coffee & Chat” at 2.00pm tomorrow (Friday 24th March 2017).
P6 pupils blew ‘The Dragons’ away yesterday afternoon during their very professional pitches for investment from the Parent Council for their Christmas Fair stalls. They have come up with four very creative ideas which they researched and budgeted. Finance secured, the classes will now go into production and then start marketing their products so look out for information on the school website and twitter feed and get along to the fair on Sat 3rd to snap up their festive gifts. Well done P6!
The Parent Council have asked us to share the following information with you.
‘Wear Something Seasonal’ – Friday 2nd December
To support the School’s Christmas Fair on Saturday 3rd December, all children are able to wear seasonal accessories (for example a hat, hair-band or jumper) alongside their normal uniform on this day.
If you can, we would also ask for donations that you can provide for the Christmas Fayre to be brought in that day. We need prizes for the raffle and red items for the very popular red stall.
Everyone loves home baking and it is critical for the tea room, so we need your cakes (and tiffin and shortbread and scones….)
Many thanks in advance!
The Parent Council.
Nursery – P7
Dear Parent / Carer
The Parent Council have asked us to issue the attached letter which explains that they know you are unable to place online orders and they have extended the deadline.
The new order forms will be issued by the Parent Council in due course.
In September the parent Council organised the Run The Length of Scotland event to raise funds. Every child who took part ran a mile and collectively on the day all children ran the equivalent distance of Dunnet Head Lighthouse (the Northern most point in Scotland) to Mull of Galloway Lighthouse (the Southern most point). The children organised sponsors and then ran in the school playground.
This was a great event and Giffnock Primary ran from one end of Scotland to the other! The event raised an amazing £4431, so many thanks to the Parent Council and to everyone who helped and took part!
Get ready for the Halloween Disco! Details are below!

Saturday 5th December 12-3pm
We need YOUR help. We’ll be running a RED STALL again! Friday 4th December, your child is free to dress as they please, as festively as they like – in return we’re asking that they bring in a donation to the red stall for the parent council to sell at the fair. This was hugely popular last year and raised hundreds of pounds! Suggested donations could include Christmas decorations, candles, chocolates, red wine, toiletries…anything red!
We have a fantastic day planned for the whole family. Loads for the kids to do, beautiful stalls for your Christmas shopping, tea room with home baking, petting zoo, and much more. Please come along and support the event!
