August 2015

Welcome to everyone at the start of the new session at Castlehill. I hope you all enjoyed the summer holiday, even if the weather was not at its best.

Staff News


We are welcoming back Mrs MacKay as P6 teacher and Miss McMillan as Classroom Assistant.

Parent Council


The first meeting of the Parent Council for this session will be held on Monday 31st August at 7.30 pm.   Minutes of the summer term’s Annual General Meeting are available from the school office and on the school website. We always welcome new members. If you are interested in joining the Parent Council, please come along to the meeting to find out how meetings work. They are an opportunity to be involved in open discussions about how to support children’s learning.

PTA Meeting


The first Parent Teacher Association meeting of the session will be held at 7.30 pm on Wednesday 9th September in the Staff Room. Again, new members are always very welcome to help the PTA’s work in organising fundraising events and activities to provide valuable resources for the children in the school, eg over the last two years the PTA has purchased twenty iPads. If you are interested, please come along to the meeting.


If you would like any more information about either the Parent Council or the PTA, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Information Evening for Parents / Carers of P1 Pupils


An Information Evening for parents of Primary 1 pupils’ will be held in the school on Thursday 17th September at 7.30 pm to give parents and carers more information about the school’s approach to reading and other matters.



As a reminder, we have pupils who have food allergies in school: a nut and sesame seed allergy and an egg allergy. The school has protocols for managing the risk to children who have allergies, but I would be grateful if you could bear this in mind when preparing packed lunches and snacks.

Calendar of Events


A list of events for this school session will be attached to the next school newsletter.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss any matter with me, please do not hesitate to speak to me or to arrange a meeting with me.


Looking forward to a successful and enjoyable year for everyone,


Richard Long

Head teacher
