A Pupil Council meeting in action

The Pupil Council meets regularly to discuss any relevant areas of school life. Pupil opinions are encouraged and the ideas and suggestions put forward at the Pupil Council meetings are taken to the Senior Management Forum monthly by the Head Boy and Head Girl. After discussion these ideas are often implemented.

The Pupil Council meetings are minuted and then circulated within the school.

Our House points tally system

Dean Park operates a House System. We have four Houses, each associated with a colour:  Pilmuir (yellow), Harlaw (blue), Ravelrig (red) and Johnsburn (green). Pupils are allocated a House on joining Dean Park and siblings are usually placed in the same House.

Each House has a Captain and Vice Captain elected at the start of P7.

Pupils are awarded house points where significant achievement or endeavour has been made.  At school sports days children compete in their Houses.
