Air Quality around schools

As part of our commitment to improving local air quality, East Renfrewshire Council now has powers to issue fixed penalty notices to drivers who don’t switch off their engines when stationary. Council officers will be carrying out patrols around local schools and speaking to drivers who let their vehicles idle unnecessarily.

Air quality within East Renfrewshire is generally good and meets national standards, however we are always keen to make further improvements. Within East Renfrewshire, road traffic is the main source of air pollutants. Parents and others taking children to and from school can help to reduce children’s exposure to exhaust fumes by leaving the car at home, by parking further away from the school and by turning off their engines when stationary.


Day of Many Colours 29th May

Tomorrow (Friday 29th May) we are holding a ‘Day of Many Colours’. You will have previously received a letter about this event. All classes will take part apart from Primary 7 as they are attending a Mass of Thanksgiving at St Andrew’s Cathedral.

Children can wear their own clothes and a top or t-shirt in their ‘House’ colour apart from St Andrew’s house who should wear white.

Children should bring a suggested donation of 50p which will go to the ‘Missions Rosary’ charity.

Mnay thanks for your continued support
