The Parent Council has organised a Grand Raffle to raise funds for the school, to be drawn at the Spring Concert on March 24th. Books of tickets have been issued to pupils through Key Adult time.

It would be very much appreciated if you could support the Parent Council by promoting the sale of these tickets. The School Office has extra books, if you would like some more.

Many thanks, on behalf of the Parent Council.

Members of the Portobello community and friends are cordially invited to the Eco Committee’s annual School Grounds Saturday Surgery. This event encourages the community to get involved with sustainable education at Porty by helping us maintain our bio-diversity garden.

The garden, located by the CDT department, has been a great success and now has several flowerbeds, a sensory garden, picnic benches, rock and stone piles, bird feeder, composters and even some elder trees! Volunteers would help us clear up and maintain these areas, along with the garden fence, making it ready for spring re-growth.

Please bring your own tools and gardening gloves if possible. Hot drinks and bacon / vegetarian rolls will be provided for all volunteers!

Please notify us if you can come along by email at

We look forward to seeing you there.
