Welcome to Our Parent Council Pages

Our next Parent Council Meeting will be held on Tuesday 29th January at 7.00-8.30 pm in BA Library. Please feel free to join us - any parent is welcome to attend.

We want to encourage as many parents as possible to participate.  Don't worry! We won't be asking you to fund raise or to take on additional responsibilities, we just want you to contribute to the discussion and give us your valuable time to help the school "Be the Best it can Be".
