Who we are...
Chair - Greig Mason
I have two small people at Viewlands, Olivia (P6) and Charlie (P3). I joined the Parent Council at the start of 2019 as I wanted to be involved in the life of the school, to offer my ongoing support and experience and to release my 'inner child' by getting involved with lots of fun things like the school Halloween Disco! At the start of 2020 I accepted the position of Chairperson which at times can be challenging enough without the added difficulties we have faced so far this year! It's great to see more and more parents looking to join the council and they are very welcome at any time. We aim to make it as fun and relaxed as we can while respecting the processes and procedures involved in running the Parent Council. I look forward to seeing more of you over the coming months!
Vice Chair - Lesley Berwick
I have a son at Viewlands, Billy (P5). I joined the Parent Council in 2018 originally as the Secretary and recently accepted the role of Vice Chair. I initially joined to get involved and understand what was happening in the school community. I originally hail from Glasgow so I thought it was a good way to meet like minded parents and help out with fun activities for the school! I particularly enjoy the Halloween disco, love seeing all the effort with the costumes and the kids love it! Pity we are not able to have one this year, just means that next years will be bigger and better!
Treasurer - Nicola Livingston
I have one child in Viewlands, Pippa in P4. Initially I got involved with the parent council because I wanted to get the 'low down' on what was happening at the school. Over the years I have seen what a valuable body the Parent Council is and what a positive contribution it can make to the school and pupils. I am coming into my second year as treasurer. My favourite part of the role? Counting all the hard-earned fundraising cash!
Secretary - Andrea Walker
I have two children at Viewlands, Freya in P4 and Thomas in P1 and I joined the Parent Council when Freya was in P2 as it began to sink in just how long my children would be at Viewlands for! I've been the Secretary since 2020 and thought it was important to join so I knew what was going on in the school and get involved in organising the fundraising activities.
Council Members - Morag Erwin, Kevin Heller, Julie McKay, Andrea Pullar, Carol Ann Rose
