We’ve set ourselves the goal of doubling the number of parents who’ve ‘liked’ the parent council Facebook page, from 135 to 270, by the end of the year.
Will you help us hit this target? It will only take a minute or two. Here’s how you can do it.
1. Open the parent council Facebook page.
Go to www.facebook.com. On the left-hand side, under the heading PAGES, click on the words ‘Breadalbane Academy Parent Council’ — outlined in red in the screenshot below.
2. Click on ‘Invite friends to like this page’.
Now you’re on the parent council Facebook page, look for ‘Invite friends to like this page’ (left-hand side; near the top — see screenshot). When you find these words, click on them.
3. Choose who to invite.
A pop-up window will open, showing all your Facebook friends. Scroll through the list and invite any parents of Breadalbane pupils to like the parent council Facebook page.
And that’s all you need to do. It will take 2 minutes, and will really help us make sure more parents are informed, and have a chance to participate. Thank you for your help!
The school’s catchment area is approximately 1000 square miles. See page 4 of the school handbook.
Do you have kids at the school but live outside Aberfeldy? The school catchment area covers roughly 1000 square miles. As a parent council, we want to make sure we serve all parents — not just the ones who live close to the school.
Do we need to make more effort to include parents from outside Aberfeldy? There are a number of things we could do. For example:
- Better publicise meetings so that parents who live further away have time to make any arrangements necessary for them to attend.
- Look at using technology — for instance video conferencing — to make the parent council more accessible.
- Have reps or sub-groups in Dunkeld and Pitlochry, who report their parents’ concerns and priorities to the parent council.
- Take the parent council on the road and have some meetings in other parts of the catchment area.
