As you will by now be aware The Parent Council and the Parent Teachers Association amalgamated in January 2011 and we now have a new formed group named the Friends of Duns Primary School (FDPS).
We are an active group of parents, teachers and school staff who give a little time to help organise and run fundraising events and fun activities throughout the school year, making extra money for equipment and resources that the school needs. Over the past few years we have helped to fund school trips, Christmas parties and activities, made contributions towards visiting theatre and music workshops, and helped with a new reading book scheme and playground equipment.
As well as fund raising activities the FDPS aim to assist the school and school staff with any ongoing and adhoc projects that they may require input on, i.e. the website design, grant applications etc.
