Parent Council

Hello all,

My name is Helen Keron and I was elected Chair of the CDHS Parent Council last month, along with Dawn Campbell as Vice Chair, Eileen Hope as Treasurer and Sara Dutton as Clerk.  Thanks very much to them, and all the other parents who attended.  I’d also like to say thanks to the previous Parent Council for all their work, in particular the outgoing Chair Melinda McGaw. 

My son Noah is in S1, going up to S2, and my daughter will be joining in a year.  I am the Executive Manager of the Glenkens Community and Arts Trust and live in New Galloway. 

To help us be sure we are representing your views properly, we will be sending out a survey after the next meeting, and your thoughts in that would be very useful.

If you’d like to join either the Parent Council or the Parent Forum, then you’re very welcome! 

The next meeting will be on the 25th May 2022 at 6:30pm.

Just come to the school reception and we will go on from there.  It would help our gender diversity immeasurably if we had some men come along next time!
