East Renfrewshire Council Budget 2015-18

East Renfrewshire Council is asking local residents to review savings proposals of around £17.6million to help close its budget gap of £20million over the next 3 years.

You can view the budget proposals in the special edition of Shaping Our Future.  You can also download a copy of pdf icon Budget proposals – Shaping Our Future [713kb].

To have your say on what is being proposed please visit the dedicated budget proposal page on Citizen Space until 5 December

The parent council have asked that we remind parents that they should contact their contact local councillor to express their views in regard to the recent budget proposals which affect education.  The Councillors for our area are all here –  http://www.eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk/ward6

Nessie Collection

Nessie clothes recycling came today and collected all the clothes and shoes everyone had brought in for recycling. The school received £300 for the collection so a big Thank you to everyone who handed stuff in this is a real boost to the school fund!
 
We also have a yellow bin in the school all year round to recycle clothes so don’t worry about missing this collection as there are collections frequently.

St Joseph’s School – Sierra Leone

St Joseph’s Primary is twinning with St Joseph’s  in Sierra Leone.  The school has provided care and a special education for hearing impaired children from across Sierra Leone for more than 30 years. On Monday 9th we are having an assembly about the school and as part of our twinning with the school we will be fundraising this year for them.

Decriminalised Parking Enforcement

As you may be aware, East Renfrewshire Council has recently introduced ‘Decriminalised Parking Enforcement’. This means that the control and enforcement of parking has moved from the Police to a team of East Renfrewshire Council Parking Attendants.

As part of this process the Council has introduced a Traffic Regulation Order granting the Parking Attendants the legal power to issue tickets to vehicles parked on ‘SCHOOL – KEEP CLEAR’ markings. Therefore it is likely that parking at schools will be monitored more closely than before.
