Pollokshields Primary School Parent Council (PPSPC) is a constituted group of parents and carers with children at Pollokshields Primary School. For the past four years, we have organised a popular Winter Arts Festival, turning Pollokshields Primary School into a Winter Wonderland for an evening in December. The Festival is for all children and families in our diverse community, providing a unique opportunity for people of all ages, religions, cultures and backgrounds to come together and share a fun winter event. The Festival will be a chance for children to experience a range of high-quality arts experiences with their families, enjoying a mix of school, local and professional music, dance, theatre and arts activities. Opportunities to experience these activities aren’t there for every child in an area where many family incomes don't stretch to seeing live music, theatre or cultural activities. We want to make sure that every child in Pollokshields is able to experience all that the Festival has to offer. To make this possible, PPSPC is applying for funding to provide these opportunities free of charge to children and families, ensuring that our event is open to all. Funding request: £2,600 to fund hall hire, entertainment, catering and promotion.
