Minutes of last meeting

Mrs Brechin read out the minutes of our last meeting and everyone agreed that they were correct.


After our assembly to the school regarding the playground, Pupil Council members have reported that over the last two weeks, playtime and lunchtimes are becoming much calmer. Mrs Brechin was able to give the PSA’s some playground equipment for pupils to use such as skipping ropes, beanbags and balls. Some pupils have been playing rounders and some have been playing the game “Silver River” which the Pupil Council shared at assembly.

Many pupils in P6 have put their names forward to be trained as Playground Leaders. We hope to get training started early next term.

After School Club

Pupil Council members have consulted their classes regarding the start-up of a new after school sports club which will be organised by Mike Wallace from the Active Schools team. There have been many suggestions and here are a few ideas: football, volleyball, tennis, rugby, gymnastics, hockey, dance and running.

Mrs Brechin will share our suggestions with Mike and we will hopefully get a club started next term.

Easter Fundraising Day – Wednesday 28th March

Mrs Brechin shared an idea from Mrs Douglas in the Office and all the PSA’s. They thought that it might be a good idea to have an Easter fundraising day in memory of Mrs Murray where we can raise some money towards having “Friendship Benches” in the playground. Some P7’s had been discussing having benches in the playground with Mrs Murray before she died. It was something she was very keen on and the Pupil Council decided that this would be a good way to remember her.

Some ideas for the day are:

  • Having a raffle for easter treats
  • Decorating a hard-boiled egg
  • Easter colouring competition
  • Wear something green/yellow
  • Letting off some balloons in the playground in Mrs Murray’s memory
  • Rolling our eggs in the playground

The Pupil Council were very enthusiastic with these ideas and are going to share them with their classes. They are also going to see if anyone else has an idea that they have for a fun activity.

Meeting ended at 2.45pm

Next meeting will be on the week beginning – !2th March.

Mrs Brechin thanked everyone for coming today.
