Panda-monium Cookarama – May 2021Panda-monium - 1

Sharing food has always been a great point of connection in the life of our school.  As we can’t yet get together as a community to cook and eat, we are inviting you to get creative in your own kitchen over the weekend of 28 – 30 May, with a quirky selection of ingredients (including suggestions from our pupils) and share images of and / or recipes for your meal via the Parent Council. ️

🥦 We are delighted to have received support for this venture from the Edinburgh University Local Community Grants Scheme, enabling 100 families to participate for free, with a £5 ingredient voucher to spend on the suggested shopping list. 🥕


  • To register your family’s interest in taking part and receiving an ingredient voucher go to…


  • your voucher and ingredient list will then be distributed to your (oldest) child via school in the week of 24 May.
  • over the weekend of 28 – 30 May, cook a family meal using the suggested ingredients in as creative a way as possible!
  •  send images and recipes of your food via your Class WhatsApp group or to the Parent Council email pspsparentcouncil@outlook.com to be displayed on a padlet and shared with all our Preston Street families.

We are delighted to have a fantastic judging panel drawn from our parent body and school community who will be giving us feedback on our efforts including Dominic Jack, Chef Director of the Kitchin Group (and dad to Ruben, Primary 3)and members of our fabulous in-school catering team who will be casting their professional eye over our entries and picking a winner.

Ready, steady….. cook up a storm!

We run various social and fundraising events over the school year and are always looking for new ideas! We have various sub groups which you are welcome to join.

We work closely with the school to help buy new equipment, fund trips and visits, run events and think of new and interesting ways to enrich the pupils time spent at school.
