Please note that Mearns Primary PTA are no longer promoting one company for uniforms but purely as a service to parents, we are providing details and links to a number of companies where logo’d uniforms can be purchased. We are also holding a uniform evening in June at the school which some of these companies will be invited along to and parents will be able to see what is available and purchase uniforms for the nursery and school.
The PTA will get a %age from some companies on Mearns Primary Uniform sales as a good will gesture for us promoting them.
Join us on Tuesday 13 June 2017 from 6pm – 8pm for our first Uniform Evening of the year.
More information can be found here: PTA Uniform evening flyer 13 June 17
Come along and purchase logo’d uniforms from local companies all under the one roof and take the stress out of the madness surrounding your children going back to school.
On Thursday 25 May pupils will be taking part in a Mile for Malawi as part of their daily mile. It is non uniform day and pupils are asked to wear sportswear (no football colours). In return we would ask for a minimum donation of £1.00. All funds raised will go to the charity Malawi Leaders of Learning. This is a development scheme aimed at sharing resources and expertise between Scotland and Malawi to improve the quality of learning and teaching for Malawian children.
Donations can be made via ParentPay by logging onto your account at www.ParentPay.com. There is of course no compulsion for children to take part and any pupil who doesn’t wish to participate should wear full school uniform.
Also from Monday 22 May to Wednesday 24 May, pupils from P4.20 and the Pupil Council will be running a “Guess the Animal’s Birthday”. Pupils can bring in 50p to take part in this event. The winner will be announced on Thursday 25 May 2017.
Please find the minutes of the recent Parent Council meeting below.
