We are all so proud of your work and commitment to the school.
Spooky season is upon us and, in the best of Scottish traditions, it’s time to come together to tell spine-tingling tall tales, sing spooky songs, and share our best nerve-jangling jokes.
This is a great opportunity for children, young people and their families in Scotland to join in with a free online event on Saturday 30th October from 1-3pm. It’s especially for children and young people who use communication technology, and will feature storytelling, singing and jokes, with plenty of opportunity for everyone to join in with communication aids and symbols.
Who is hosting the event?
It is being hosted by Augmentative Communication in Practice (ACIP:S), the organisation that brings together the various communication aid and assistive technology services in Scotland (CALL Scotland , FAACT, KEYCOMM, SCTCI and others) and takes place during AAC Awareness Month, which happens in October each year.
East Renfrewshire Carers Centre are facilitating a zoom session on 19 October at 7pm and would like to invite carers of young people with additional support needs who are aged between 14 and 25 years. East Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership (ERHSCP) are developing a Transition to Adulthood Pathway to support young people who require additional support moving to adulthood and adult services. This pathway will act as a guide to the HSCP, partners, carers and young people.
Parents and carers are crucial to good transitions and their involvement in the development of this pathway is important. We want to learn from carers’ personal experience, knowledge and views on supporting a young person transitioning into their adult life. Please take the opportunity to attend on 19th October and share information that will be used in shaping the transitions pathway.
If you are able to attend please confirm attendance with email@example.com
If you are unable to attend please complete and return the attached questionnaire so as your views can be heard. Please return completed questionnaires by 22 October.
Please see the information below re donations for our Harvest appeal. This year all contributions will be given to the East Renfrewshire Food Bank.
If you have anything that you would like to donate (canned goods, non-perishable food items)that you please send them into school by Friday 8th of October
