First Meeting of the Parent Forum and Council  12 Sep 2007

On Wednesday 12 September 2007 the Rector chaired a meeting of the Madras College Parent Forum.  he outlined how schools were moving to the new Parent Forums and Councils under recent legislation.  The meeting approved a constitution with some small amendments to the tabled draft.  Up to 30 parents can be on the Council, with the possibility of co-opting other members.

The first meeting of the new Parent Council will be in the Kilrymont Road building on 3 October at 7.30 pm.  This meeting, in common with most other meetings of the Parent Council is a public meeting, and all parents will be welcome to attend.

The Rector reported that Historic Scotland has recently classified the Kilrymont Road School buildings as Grade B listed buildings.  This brought gasps of astonishment from many at the meeting.

There were not as yet any obvious developments from Fife Council in the push for ending the split-site Madras College.  We hope that the new administration will soon move to progress this.
