Received from our new local National Parent Forum representatives, 27/4/13.
They aim to "establish a coherent system to share information and to provide a strong voice at local and national level for the parents of Aberdeenshire" and will be meeting with Aberdeenshire Council on 2nd May to discuss this. We will post an update from them after the meeting.
Please take time to read their 'Letter to Parent Councils' (linked in the text below) in detail, as it contains a wealth of useful links, including local consultations.
