Our next Open Door Session will take place from 3-4pm in the Discovery Zone on Thursday 7th December.
This is an informal drop-in sessions where you will have the opportunity to discuss anything which is on your mind, offer ideas and suggestions, clarify anything you are unsure of or simply meet the staff and other parents! Aberfoyle Primary School has long had an open-door policy and the staff are keen to make as many parents as possible aware of this and encourage open communication between the school and parents.
If there is anything at all that you would like to chat to the teachers about or if you would like to find out more about what Aberfoyle Parents does then please drop in. We look forward to talking with you!
The minutes from the AGM held on 5 September are available to view here.
Aberfoyle Parents would like to thank all helpers, parents and local businesses for their support at the Summer Fair on Sat 26 May.
Aberfoyle Deli & Butcher very generously donated burgers, sausages and rolls to our BBQ from which we were able to raise over £200! A big thank-you to Trevor!
Thanks are also due to Benview Garden Centre, David McPhie and William Blackhurst for their donations to the gardening stall. Thank you to all the parents who gave up time to help set up, run stalls and clear away. None of this could happen wothout you!
The full totals from all the other stalls run by Aberfoyle Parents are not yet in but it was a successful year and even the weather was kind to us. All funds raised will go towards supporting class trips for all age groups in the school throughout the year.

The Health & Eco committee are looking for parent helpers to work alongside the children on Wednesday 26th October and every fortnight after, between 9.45am & 10.30am creating wonderful fruity delights for the children to purchase from the healthy tuck shop.

The running club will be starting again on Tuesday 6th September 2016 between 12.15pm 12.45pm. Children are asked to bring a spare PE kit, towel and gym shoes as we will be running in all weathers.
Two Aberfoyle dads are in the process of setting up a Cub Scout group in the village. Cubs are for boys aged 8-10 ½ years, with a typical meeting consisting of a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging, and plenty of time spent outdoors! If you are interested in becoming a cub leader, a parent helper or have previous cub leadership experience, then please contact Wynne Rees on email@example.com.
Thank you to the many parents who continue to support us by placing unwanted clothing and shoes in the RagBag bin. This is a valuable source of funds for Aberfoyle Parents. If you find that the bin is full when you want to drop goods off please take them home again and wait until the bin has been emptied. Any bags left next to it will not be uplifted and will have to be thrown away if they get wet. Lynne Steele keeps an eye on the bin and calls RagBag to have it emptied when it is nearly full. Please feel free to get in touch with Lynne if the bin needs emptied. It is amazing how quickly it fills! Thank you for your support.
Please note that RagBag now only collect wearable clothes, paired shoes, handbags and belts.
