LPPC AGM – May 26th

Our annual general meeting is a week on Wednesday, 26th May @ 6:15pm via Teams. It would be great if you could join us for the session which should last 1 hour at the most. Many of our most active parent council parents have P7s which means they will be moving on from the school in June. We’d love for some new faces to become involved and help make a difference to our children’s time at Leith Primary.

Come and hear what is coming up and see if there’s something that sparks an interest for you. If you’d like to join the meeting, no pressure to say anything or volunteer for anything, please contact us and we will send you the link to join.

May be an image of text that says "WE NEED YOUR HELP ALL PARENTS LPPC NEEDS YOU! WE WOULD LOVE YOU TO COME TO OUR AGM TEAMS MEETING ON WED 26TH MAY 6.15PM GET IN TOUCH TODAY TO FIND OUT MORE. Made with PosterMyWall.com EMAIL LEITHPPC@GMAIL.COM FOR INFO AND MEETING LINK"

School Food Store Open for Use

Thanks to the kindness of our local guardian angels and the generosity of our own Parent Council, LPPC, we have been able to open up a school food store for any family who needs it. A wide range of non-perishables have been stocked in our former upper school cloakroom. Parents and carers are welcome to come along at Wednesdays 8.30am-9.30am to take whatever they need for their family.

LPPC hoping to win funding from Leith Chooses

The parent council is hoping to win £1120 to provide breakfast and snacks for Leith Primary students through Leith Chooses www.leithchooses.net/

LPPC will provide the school with boxes of breakfast and healthy snack food items which will be positioned in each classroom and at key stations round the school such as the office. This is so that school staff can easily provide children with breakfast or a snack with minimal fuss or disruption to their learning.

There are a significant number of pupils arriving at school each day without having had breakfast, without a snack for breaktime or an adequate lunch. The boxes will support these vulnerable children who are falling through the net of other food provision in school or the wider community.

We need your support when voting opens on 25th January https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/cf/vote-leith-chooses/
