We have been advised about a project funded by Surestart for the attention of our parents/carers who have children of primary school age. The project is aimed at supporting those adults who feel they could benefit from some mental health support and would be held over 12 sessions. An example of what the project aims to do is help adults with anxiety, coping with stress and trauma amongst other things. If you feel you would like some support with your mental health please contact our school office on 0131 271 4600, so they can pass your details on for referral to our Depute Head Teacher. You can also e-mail the school at Hawthornden.firstname.lastname@example.org

Sadly, we are having to delay communicating with our parents via e-mail as we are still chasing the e-mail addresses of a high number of contacts. Despite chasing these on numerous occasions and advising via our last couple of newsletters that this information is required urgently in order to start e-mailing, this has not happened. In the meantime, we will continue to communicate via our school app, website and text messaging.
