Welcome to James Gillespie's High School Parent Council website

The Parent Council exists to represent all parents and carers. This includes:

  • putting forward parents' views on issues;
  • consulting and providing feedback to the school;
  • providing refreshments at school events;
  • fundraising for school projects, equipment, books and trips;
  • co-ordinating with other Parent Councils;
  • making representations to the City Council.

Parent Council meetings are a helpful source of information and all parents and carers are very welcome.

Fundraising

Thank you for your ongoing support to raise funds for our students and our school via parentpay.  

This year through your generous donations to our Festive Fundraiser we have raised - £1930 - thank you! 

All these funds will go towards supporting our students and our school.  Last year you helped to raised £1420 (including Gift Aid) in our Christmas appeal.

With your help, we were able to fund:

  • The nurture group supporting vulnerable young people at our school,
  • Starting the breakfast club,
  • STEM club resources,
  • sports strips,
  • strings for instruments,
  • equipment for the photography course,
  • and many other things.
Your donations make a difference for our pupils and the Parent Council would like to thank you for your support.

THANK YOU to everyone for supporting our summer wine-tasting social event on Fri 26th April - tickets were sold out and it was a great evening.  We would like to thank our local supporters including: Vino Wines and Barney's Beers; Victor Hugo; Barnomadics; Scotmid; Sainsbury's; Aldi and our local greengrocers at Argyle Place.  Thanks to all of them, to our parent volunteers and to you for supporting our evening.
