Clubs

The Parent Council is pleased to be in a position to offer the following extra-curricular clubs. These clubs run under SMPC guidelines but are only possible thanks to the school making the room available, and only successful thanks to the commitment and efforts of parents who undertake the administrative role of Club Convenor on a voluntary basis. They are the link between the tutor, school and parents.

Regretfully not all clubs are available to all year groups and physical space constraints mean many are over-subscribed. Wait-lists are kept by many clubs, please ensure your child is aware that they may need to wait to join a SMPC Club.

Active Schools

In addition to the above Active Schools offer a number of activities. You can see the available activities for Sept-Dec 2017 in this PDF download.

Other clubs

Older Boys Football (contact: smpsfootball@gmail.com ) and Girls Football (contact: Jill Mundy) both run on Saturday morning at Meadowspot, but these are not run by SMPC.

Please also remember numerous activities and different clubs are also available at multiple other venues across Edinburgh and beyond – enjoy exploring and discovering!

How to Apply

Click on the club name above for more information and contact the individual Club Convenor (a parent who has volunteered to carry out the club admin) for an application form.  Complete the application form with payment and return it to the school SMPC Club Box by the Janitor’s office (Main School) or by Reception (Deanbank).

A child’s space is not guaranteed until confirmed by the Club Convenor AND payment is received in full. All payment is due PRIOR to clubs starting. Failure to do so could result in your child not being admitted in to the club.
All cheques should be made payable to South Morningside Parent Council (SMPC).

Refunds

Very occasionally classes need to be cancelled (e.g. instructor sickness, snap election dates). SMPC policy is that refunds will only be given in exceptional circumstances at the individual club’s discretion as offering refunds when this happens involves a lot of work for relatively small amounts of money. If, after accepting & paying for a place, your child subsequently does not take the place / drops out / changes their mind, a refund will not be given

The Clubs Coordinator can be contacted on clubs@sm-pc.org.
