Pupil Voice


At Dunclug Primary School we understand the importance of pupil voice. For the next few weeks the School Council are looking into the schools behaviour policy. We are going to be using the pupils' opinions on inappropriate behaviour and appropriate sanctions when editing our behaviour policy. It is vital that pupils are involved in these decisions and our school council is a great representation of our whole school!


Valentines Sweetie Cart

The School Council have been working very hard to organise a Valentines Sweetie Cart. The Sweetie cart will be run during school hours on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th of February. If pupils would like to buy from the sweetie cart they can bring money on both of these days. 


Donut sale

On Monday 29th of October School Council is holding a non-uniform day. The pupils will be charged £1 for this which will go towards school funds.

During this day there will also be a donut sale- pupils will be able to buy donuts and a selection of other cakes and tray bakes. The school council will be involved in selling and making some of these sweet treats!



Halloween Disco

On Tuesday 30th of October the school council are planning a Halloween fancy dress day. There will also be a Halloween disco where refreshments will be provided for the children. For non-uniform and for the disco we ask that each child brings in £2 which will go towards school funds. We look forward to seeing all your creative Halloween costumes!

Poppy Appeal 2017


The School Council were a great help with this year's Poppy Appeal by taking the poppy box around each class in pairs.

Pupils from P1-P7 made donations to attain poppies and had the opportunity to wear them to our Remembrance assembly which took place on Friday 10th November.


School Council £1 Sale


On Thursday 19th October, the School Council held a very successful £1 sale. It was so popular that all pupils were given another opportunity to buy items on Friday 20th too!

The pupils purchased a range of donated items such as jewellery, DVDs, toys, books and accessories and all sale proceeds have positively contributed to raising our school funds!

The School Council members did a fantastic job with creating posters to advertise the sale, organising resources and assisting pupils with their purchases. 

Miss Cameron and the School Council would like to thank everyone for all donations and support for the sale - a really great start to the school year with the success of this first event!


School Council Meetings


At these meetings, we discuss a range of school issues and suggest our ideas for changes/developments within school and events throughout the year such as school fundraising initiatives, themes for non-uniform days, ideas for whole school fun days/treats.
