“The East Renfrewshire Convoy to Calais leaves this Thursday at 8pm from the car park of ER Council HQ in Eastwood Park, Giffnock. They are taking the largest single donation from anywhere in Scotland. Schools and nurseries from all over East Renfrewshire responded with overwhelming generosity to the appeal. All parents, children and staff are invited to be there for the send-off. The convoy organisers want to give the families who contributed the opportunity to see their donations leave, and to send the convoy off in style. We hope you can join us.”
From Councillor Waters
Education Services department have created a short survey for parents/carers which they hope will capture your views on both preferred methods of general (administration type) communications with schools/pre-five establishments and also your thoughts on the online payment solution.
We would appreciate it if you could follow this link and complete the survey:
Tomorrow’s Information Evening will provide parents/carers with relevant information on assessment and reporting formats. This session is a repeat of last year’s session and the same information will be provided. This evening is suited most to parents new to the school and those who could not attend last year, although as always, all parents/carers are welcome to attend. Information leaflets are available on our website. The session will start at 6.30pm.
One Day Research Workshop – Thursday 22 October, 10 am – 4 pm
Have you ever wondered about the background history of Rouken Glen? Have you ever seen an old photograph of the park and wondered where it might be or if any buildings or structures still survive?
This short session will introduce key themes of how to research Rouken Glen – putting old photographs and oral histories into context, by studying old maps, aerial photographs and looking at the National Monument Record. We will help you develop research skills, ask analytical questions of historical sources and how to collate and present your results. We will also help you think about where you might like to go next with your research.
Delivered by Archaeology Scotland, this workshop will help you learn more about the park and show you what to do with the information you have uncovered. We will provide all the equipment – you just need to turn up! Booking required.
