Vote for Lanark Primary In Tesco Stores

Lanark Primary Parent Council are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for a Tesco Bags of Help Award to support a new Forest School Programme called Learning Together, Growing Together. You will be able to vote for Lanark Primary in Lanark Tesco during May and June. 

Learning Together, Growing Together will work with pupils who have been identified as needing support to develop confidence, self-esteem and outdoor skills.

Here’s what happens next…

This project along with two other successful projects will go forward to a vote in Tesco stores where customers can vote for their favourite project each time they shop. Voting will take place from Wednesday 1st May 2019 to Sunday 30th June 2019. You vote by placing a token in the project box of your choice.  The project with the highest number of votes will receive £4,000, the second placed project £2,000 and the third placed project £1,000. 

The more funding we get, the more children we can support, so we’ve costed the project to £4000. We need as many people as possible to vote for Lanark Primary so get your tokens ready and please share this post with as many people as you can.

 

Lanark PS Parent Council- Family Quiz Night

Well done to LPS Parent Council for organising a successful Family Quiz Night in the school which was enjoyed by all! Thanks go to all members of the PC for again giving their own valuable time to organising and running the event. Unfortunately, it was not as well attended as expected. The PC are looking for feedback/ideas for future fundraising so please share your thoughts on this.

Support in Times of Hardship

As you may already know, the Parent Council support the school in many ways. One of those ways is to provide a small discretionary fund which can be used to support the purchase of clothing, cost of trips or to help provide snacks in times of financial difficulty.

The school can also provide clothing & uniform if needed. Please contact me at the school if you would like to know more. As always, this would be in the strictest confidence.

Christmas Gift Sale

Many thanks to the Parent Council, parent volunteers and friends for organising and helping out at the annual Gift Sale. The children enjoyed choosing their gifts (for themselves and their loved ones) and getting them individually wrapped too! Approximately £2000 was raised – an amazing amount, well done!

Bag Packing - Tesco

On Saturday 24th November the Parent Council Bag Packing at Tesco Lanark raised an amazing £388. Many thanks to our parents, teachers and especially the pupils who gave up their time.  Our P5-7 pupils demonstrated great confidence and excellent manners whilst helping customers.

B & M Bag Packing

Well done to all our pupil and parent volunteers who took part in a Bag Packing at B&M Bargains in Lanarnk recently. Our pupils raised an incredible £460 for the LPS Parent Council fund. Well done to everyone involved. There will be another chance to practise those bag packing skills for P5-7 on Saturday 24th November at Tesco so please get involved if you can!
