Thank you Parent Council

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Important Announcements

Monday this week was an In-Service Training Day for staff. For the second year running lunch on the June In-Service was provided by our Parent Council who laid on a fantastic spread for all Charleston Academy staff as a way of saying “Thank You” to everyone at Charleston for the tremendous support we provide for our young people throughout the year. Teachers, janitors, the office, our cleaners and all support staff were treated to a fantastic lunch. We were also delighted to welcome many of our partners to the lunch who were then able to share and develop a better understanding of the work they do in supporting our young people.

Special thanks to parent Rona Macaskill (The Forest Kitchen) who did all the catering and the parents and younger children who assisted.

A big thank you to everyone who helped in running the Rotary Charity Shop on Academy Street. The total profit raised during the week was a great sum of £1734.26. Volunteers, including parents, retired and current teachers as well as pupils generously donated bric-a-brac, gave their time doing shifts and helped sort and price items, as well as taking on much ironing!

The Parent Council represents all parents and carers of all pupils at Charleston Academy. The Parent Council Fund is used to support a variety of school projects, for example enabling pupils to attend extra-curricular events, our eco-schools pond and poly-tunnel and more recently funding the purchase of 12 hens eggs and an incubator.
