Community Help and Advice Initiative (CHAI) is now in Castleview Primary School.
This service operates within 14 schools in Edinburgh so far, and helps families access free, confidential and impartial advice on housing, finances and welfare rights – offering the convenience of working from your school. Home visits can be arranged when appropriate.
Every year, around £81 million worth of benefits are unclaimed in Edinburgh. CHAI aims to maximise income, address any money problems and ultimately reduce the educational attainment gap between higher and lower income households.
Kirsteen Wishart, Advice Worker, is available to make appointments for families. Appointments can be arranged either through the school office or by contacting Kirsteen directly on 0131 442 1009.
Dear Parents & Carers,
YOU are invited to our upcoming Healthy Snacks, Healthy Living All Teach All Learn on Wednesday 26th September at 2pm.
All parents & carers who attend will be entered into a prize draw.
We look forward to seeing you there.
We are delighted to have launched our next ‘Building Resilience’ unit, Look on the Bright Side. We can all look at the same situation from different perspectives. Sometimes the way we think about things that happen to us can have a bigger impact on our Wellbeing than the event itself. This unit will be exploring how through focusing on the positive things in our life and what we are grateful for can be a helpful way to change our mood. Look out for your family leaflet and home task.
Sign up for the clubs will open on-line on Monday 27th August and will close on the 6th September.
If you cannot sign up on line Shirley Banks our Active Schools Coordinator will be in school on Monday 27th August from 2.30 – 3.30pm to help Parents/Carers to sign pupils up for this block.
All clubs remain FREE of charge!
