4. P1 Mums night

The feedback from the night was very positive with 50/60 mums attending across all the classes.  It was thought it was a very worthwhile evening and the plan going forward would be to hold this event in late September.

5.  Ceilidh Update

The Carmichael Hall is booked for the event on Friday March 21st from 6-10pm with the event taking place from 7-9.30pm.

The St Rochs Ceilidh band have also been booked.

Whilst ticket sales were initially slow they are now starting to pick up.  However a further advertising push will take place and Mr Jamieson will issue a further request for tickets, and the mediums of the school website, face book and twitter will also be used.   It was stressed that spreading the word in the playground was also essential in making the event a success.

It is a BYOB event.  Joe will investigate new ERC regulations that involve having a designated BYOB area. We would ask that any wine carriers be handed in before the event as this may help the process.

Bernadine will follow up on the Dominos pizza pound a slice deal.

It was agreed there will be a tuck shop for children but there will be no novelties at this event.

There will be a number of games including stand up bingo and pound nearest the bottle for the adults.  Donations of whisky and champagne bottles were made by the staff and members of the committee.  For the children there will be a guess the teddy’s birthday, which Teresa and Colette will organise, and also a Scottish themed colouring  picture competition with prizes for the best pictures.  The school will provide crayons / pencils etc and Teresa will source Scottish themed artwork to colour in.

Finally,  Mr Jamieson advised that the children would able to practice some of the more popular dances before the event.
