Our Parent Staff Association has kindly agreed to fund match a Parent Council initiative involving a grant application for Cycle and Scooter Parking facilities at Carmondean Primary School. The Sustrans movement offers grants for this purpose and an application for parking facilities worth £2000 has been made. This means that our PSA will have to fund match half of that sum (£1000) which they have readily agreed to do. We are hopeful that our application will be successful and we will be able to encourage more children to ride bikes and scooters to school safe in the knowledge that they will be able to park them securely.
The National Parent Forum of Scotland has been running ‘Learning Together’ sessions on Numeracy and Mathematics concepts to help with parents and children learning at home. If you have missed these sessions and are interested in seeing what they are about, each session has been posted to the Forum’s YouTube channel, which is here:
