Helping Out

We really want everyone to get involved whenever they can with things going on in school. The kids love it when parents go in and most of the parents are surprised at how much they enjoy it too!

Please get in touch at if you can help at all – not just with the things listed below. If you have skills or ideas that you want to share please get in touch either by email or through one of the parent representatives – we’d love to hear from you!


Healthy Tuck

The Healthy Tuck Shop is run fortnightly on a Wednesday and volunteers from the parent body are greatly appreciated.  Help is needed for around 1/2 hour (9:45-10:15) every second Wednesday.  The pupils from the Health and Eco Committee do most of the preparations and parental help is required to supervise this and help where needed (chopping fruit for example).  If you have some free time and would like to help out please do get in touch via email or chat to Shona Harrison.  You don't need to volunteer on an ongoing basis, just one or two Wednesdays would be a great help!




Bikeability teaches children important cycling safety skills and is always popular.  If you would like to help out please email us. 

Bikeability 2 will start for all P6 children on Wednesday 2nd March 3pm - 4pm. Consent forms and further information will be sent out after the half term break.  


Do you have skills or time to donate?

Aberfoyle Primary School welcomes parental involvement and Aberfoyle Parents are here to help facilitate this.  If you have any skills which you think might be of benefit to learning please get in touch either with the school direct or with Aberfoyle Parents and we can pass this on.  Skills do not need to be relevant only to your childs specific year group, you can help out with any class from Nursery through P7.  Perhaps you are a keen gardener, cook or crafter?  Perhaps you have knowledge of wildlife, recycling, ICT enterprise through your work or educational history?  If you are willing to share these skills please let the school know about them.

If you have some free time which you would like to "donate" to the school this would also be greatly appreciated.  Again, you can help out across the school.  Teachers often need volunteers for class trips within and outwith the village, or help in class with projects/art.  If you have a certain time/days which you are available please get in touch.


Class Reps

Each class has a representative who helps the class teacher organise trips, events and helpers for outdoor learning.  They also act as a point of contact between parents and the school.  Below is a lsit of this years representatives.
