As promised, an update on the 'Lost Property' front. It would seem that there has indeed been a bit of a hick-up on the issue of lost property. The school is planning to go back to the old system of routinely (probably once a term) conducting a sweep of the school to collect in all and any items left abandoned or forgotten. The resulting treasure hoard will then be held centrally, advertised and will be made available for parents/pupils to stake their claims. Hope this helps.
Another fair call and thanks for using the GGS Parent's Blog. I will look into what the school's arrangements are, if any, and see if they can't get something more satisfactory put in place. Watch this space for an update in due course.
I have an overwhelming frustration that there is no formal arrangement for lost property at the school. My youngster is particularly careless and I often have to trawl the school seeking out and going through out piles of abandoned sweatshirts and other kit looking for his. Surely many others must be in the same boat. School uniform is so expensive. Naming items does not make a blind bit of difference as it appears to go astray regardless.

Have you tried our web shop? If not, why not?

The web shop is easily accessible via our website and allows you to access all your favourite web stores. Each time you spend in these stores via our web shop the retailer will pay us commission from their profit margin. So it costs you no more than normal web shopping and we get cash to plough back into the school. How good is that!

Let me know what you think of the web shop... good, bad or ....
The simple answer to your question is yes and no. Yes you can help raise funds for the parent council and therefore the school by using our web-shop. By accessing retailers' sites via our web-shop they will pay us commission out of thier profits, so it costs you no more than normal. Unfortunately, ebay is not one of the retailers/sites that is part of the web-shop scheme. If you want to have a look at our web-shop a link is at the foot of the Parent Council web site home page. This is easily accessed from the school's website home page - the big GGS Parent Council link. If you do not have the school's website it is easily googled or use www.grantowngrammar.highland.sch.uk
