The Parents’ Association exists to represent the parents and carers of pupils at Penicuik High School. Our aim is to support the work of the school to ensure that Penicuik High School can provide the best education possible for our children. We do this by encouraging parents to become involved in the life of the school, by raising funds to support school activities and by representing the views of parents.
There are lots of ways that parents, carers (or even grandparents) can get involved so please come along to a meeting, offer your support in any way you can and give us your ideas and feedback. You can do this at a meeting, via the school office, by joining the Penicuik High School Parents Association Facebook group or by emailing us at email@example.com.
Current office holders are: Pauline Pender (Chair), Vacancy (Vice Chair), Sharon Bravey (Treasurer), Jill Doyle (50:50 club), Julie Begbie (Facebook group administrator) and Rowena Robbie (PA rep on Eco-committee). More details of the meeting can be found in the Minutes below.
We held a workshop in May 2019 on ‘Helping to Support Your School’ and at the workshop it was highlighted that research has shown that children do better at schools where parents/carers are actively engaged in the life of the school. At the meeting a very useful handout was given which can be read here.
