January Update

HAPC - HERE FOR ALL PARENTS AND CARERS

Our first meeting of the new year took the form of an Information Evening focusing on Online Safety and the use of Social Media.  There was lots of great discussion and advice with particular support from Inspector MacNeil from Police Scotland who provided a good insight into the supports that parents can receive from the force and will see more of this with the appointment of the new Youth Engagement Officer.

Headteacher Mr Williamson provided information on the school policies and Friends Against Bullying (FAB) which is an ongoing support and network available through the school.

Parents commented that “knowing if your child is swept up in an incident Police Scotland and the school are supportive.”

HAPC felt this was such an important message we grabbed an opportunity to have these messages available online.  (Apologies for technique, it was off the cuff, but hope parents find this advice helpful.)  You can find these over on our Facebook page.  (We’ll be updating our webpage with links – when i can figure out how! LOL)

The Parent Council will have stalls available at Parent’s Evenings throughout the rest of the school year hoping to hear more parent and pupil views on what you’d like to see progressed with the Library space.  Pop  over and give us your thoughts and pick up a sweetie too!!
