Message from Mrs Neil

Dear Parents/carers and staff, 
We received an Email from Emily today to explain the following:

                       "A pot of funding that falls under the Youth Music Initiative formula fund, managed by Creative Scotland has been paused with immediate effect this week. This is Scotland-wide and will have a massive impact on Youth Music in Scotland. I know that Greenburn isn’t funded by this pot, in fact, none of the South Lanarkshire HMM projects are, however, I was informed yesterday that to cover the shortfall from this pot, there may need be changes to projects we are delivering. I’m hoping that the school individual budgets don’t fall under this category. In response to this I’m trying to collect as many testimonials as possible highlighting the need for this service and wondered if it was possible for anyone from Greenburn to put something together that I can take to the council?

As the HT I am going to provide an impact report  for Emily and Hear My Music by the end of the week.  However looking at the 'Creative Scotland' website and it is my intention to make a personal plea to them as well as sending the report.

I know that many of you use the HMM resources personally as well as in school.  If you could, we would really appreciate your help with this. 
Sending emails/testimonies to us or  straight to Creative Scotland - ANYTHING you can do to help.  I am sure Emily and HMM would really appreciate this.  

From an equity point of view I wonder what else Creative Scotland is offering our children and young people with severe and complex learning difficulties.  I would very much hate to think that the ASN community were being disadvantaged by this withdrawal of funds.
Many thanks in anticipation

Best Regards
Maria Neil

I am so sorry but our tumble dryer in school is not working.  Can I ask parents to send in a towel  on the days you have swimming, we will return home.   If anyone knows someone who could fix our dryer would you let me know.

School Uniform

Dear Parents & Carers,
We have set up a system to try to help parents out with the expense of school uniform.  
A hanging rack will be available at the all events prior to the holidays.  You will be  able to 'help yourself ' to anything on the rack.  We don't have a lot on it at the moment but I am hoping that you will be able to have a 'clear out' of uniforms and send them in to us before our achievement assembly on Friday.  The rack will be available beside the tea and coffee at the back of the hall.  
Please have a good look and see if you can part with any old uniform and send in to us.  Many thanks for all your help.
We look forward to seeing you all at 1pm on Friday afternoon.
Many thanks
Maria Neil
