We will shortly be introducing recorder playing to pupils in Primary 4. In the interest of health and hygiene it is best if pupils have their own recorder. To this end the school will be sending off an order for recorders in the near future. If you would like your child to have his/her own recorder (cost £6), please complete the slip attached to the Newsletter (Primary 4-7 only) and return it to school by Friday 25th October.

The Giving Machine

Please visit The Giving Machine website. If you shop online through the Giving Machine, the retailers will donate to PTA funds.

Clerk to the Parent Council

There is still a vacancy for the post of clerk to the Parent Council. There are currently four regular meetings a year to attend and write minutes for, for which there is a payment of £5.85 per hour. If anyone is intersted please contact Mr Long.

Flu Immunisation

You should already have received information about the Flu Immunisation Programme that Castlehill is part of this year. The vaccination, which will be in the form of a nasal spray, will take place during Friday 25th October and Monday 28th October. Please note that the letter recently sent to you from NHS stated "that if your child fails to attend school on the day of the vaccinations they will not be offered any further appointments by the school service. No appointments will be available from GP practice unless your child has an underlying medical condition."
