Families of our ELCC

Now that we are truly getting settled in in our brand new and beautiful new build ELCC and we hope that you as parents and your children are enjoying the new experiences and environment the new setting is able to provide.

We are very keen on continuing the excellent partnership we have had with parents over the years, and we value your feedback and support.  Throughout the year, we will be inviting you to share your feedback in different ways including completing surveys, Stay and Play sessions, parents’ evenings, any many more.

We would be grateful if you could take the time to share your experiences of Milton of Leys ELCC since August 2022 through the following Google form survey, this will help us to continually grow as a setting and support both staff, pupils and parents in the way we move forward.

THE POWER OF DEMOCRACY – MOL STYLE

This Friday afternoon we held our whole school House Captain elections. And what an powerful afternoon it was……whereby the children positively engaged and took part in a whole school election process.

The preparation from all those who stood for an elected position was so professional, showing such a high level of commitment, clearly illustrating how serving others is so important to all these young people.

All the candidates stood up and gave really informed insightful presentations, and then took some really tricky questions from their audiences, handling them with honesty, reflection and empathy.

Voting boxes were then set up and each child was able to cast their own independent vote.

We are really looking forward to the election count which will be taking place over the weekend. The results will then follow, and we are all looking forward to meeting our new House Captains. What a brilliant afternoon….!!!!!

Please do have a fantastic weekend ahead with all your families.

Yours, Robert

INTRODUCING OUR NEW P7 PUPIL LEADERSHIP TEAM

After a day of really powerful interviews, around which ALL the P7 pupils responded with so much maturity, confidence and insight, I am so pleased to announce that the new P7 Leadership Team has been selected for this session.

The immense range of skills, interests, and passion which each of these young people bring to the team will ensure that the voice of all the children is not only captured, but importantly, it is acted on by this powerful group of leaders.

The P7 Leadership Team is now so eager to have their first official meeting later this week in order to map out their year ahead. This will be so exciting and powerful – Please watch this space for their progress in the months to come.

Many thanks to ALL the P7 children who stepped up and were interviewed for the Leadership Team. You were all totally awesome…!!!!

Parent Council – AGM and meeting Wednesday 14 September

We’re delighted that we are able to hold our meeting next week in the schools new learning environment “The Imagination Station” – formerly the old Library area

We will kick off at 6pm with the chance for us to meet each other and the staff team over a tea/coffee and a biscuit.  

The meeting will start officially at 6.30pm and end at 8.30pm.  This is longer than our normal meeting but there are a number of items on the agenda, plus the AGM part, and I would like to make sure that we have time to cover everything and that we know in advance that the meeting will take around 2 hours.  Please don’t forget that if you are interested in taking up the posts of Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer or Secretary, then you are very welcome to put yourself forward at the meeting.

We will endeavour to keep the meeting as short and focused as possible

We will aim for a mix of in person and online meetings this year and see how that goes.  For next week, we will also send out a link so that anyone who is unable to attend in person can join online.  Please be aware that this will be to listen in only, as we aren’t able to run a hybrid meeting.  This will be a test run so please bear with us if it doesn’t work.

The agenda, previous meeting minutes and link for Wednesday will be sent out on Friday.

The Imagination Station is on the same side of the building as the main reception – a few doors down if you are moving towards the MUGA.  We will make sure someone is outside to greet you until the meeting starts at 6.30pm.
