Welcome to the School Council!

We are elected by our classes to represent the children in our school.

We promise to listen to your suggestions and to try and make some improvements to our already fabulous school!

This year we ran our very own election campaign for those wishing to gain a coveted place on the School Council! Thank you to everyone who took part, we all enjoyed watching the election videos, looking at the posters and hearing lots of wonderful ideas on how to improve our school! 


We've been thinking about...

After the success of last year's School Council the new members were keen to have their say... some people even had a list with them to the first meeting!

Some ideas for this new academic year are to introduce house teams to our school, a sports tournament in the summer term to give everyone the opportunity to take part and also to develop the roles of playground friends in the playground.

It's set to be another busy year for the school council!!

Parent Internet Safety Talk

We will be holding a talk for parents about internet safety this year.  Please indicate your preferred session below, before we make arrangements for this. Thank you. 

(The school will provide supervision for our nursery and primary school pupils during the session.)

The BIG Bun Sale 2019

The School Council held their BIG Bun Sale on Wednesday 16th October. They wish to thank everyone for contributing and for buying buns. Everyone in school had great fun buying buns this morning... especially the staff!

Mrs Stewart is immensely proud of everyone in the School Council for all their hard work both prior to today and during the sale. You are a credit to NPS! 

All the money raised during the sale will go towards to new equipment chosen by the School Council. 

The bun sale will be open to parents this afternoon and also at the Harvest assembly tomorrow. 

It was quite overwhelming coming in to see how many buns were contributed and for that we have to sincerely thank all the families of NPS for showing their support of the school in this way. 🧁😊

New School Motto!

As you may know we have been working hard to come up with a school motto to represent our school. This task was a LOT harder than expected as we wanted something just right. When we held discussions about what our motto should be about there was a strong feeling of needing to show that we care for one and other, that we work hard to improve and we learn together. 

We finally settled on our new motto, 'Be the Best You Can Be.' We think that this motto is relevant for every child from Nursery to P7. No matter what activity we do, we should always do it to our best ability. 

To celebrate this new motto we made a collaborative display for the whole school based on the story, 'Only One  You,' by Linda Kranz which embraces the new motto.
