Parent Council Facebook Page - Giffnock Primary School Parent Council, East Renfrewshire

What did you do?

We set up a Facebook page for Giffnock Primary Parent Council. We're aiming to use it as a form of communication with the parent forum. Every time we send a letter home I ask parents to contact us via our page, and every new year I let the new P1 parents know of its existence! We also use it heavily on the lead up to any fund-raising events to promote the event.

Who was involved?

About three quarters of our Parent Council are administrators of the page so they can post updates.

What was the biggest success?

We've found that it works really well when making use of other local pages as they can help advertise on our behalf. 'What's On East Renfrewshire' have been incredibly helpful and effective in getting our events known about.
