Four of our 6th-year students at Barrhead High have been lucky enough to be selected to go to Malawi, this October, as part of the Betty Cunningham International Trust.
In Malawi, they will be helping the young children of Kaponda region improve their eductaion, healthcare and confidence, in the hope that this will better their livelihood and future.
While they are thrilled and grateful for this incredible opportunity, it requires a huge amount of fundraising (approx £10,000 between them). To support this, they have organised a Frehser’s Party! This is a fantastic opportunity for our S1 students to bond and get to know each other, while supporting a worthwhile cause.
The freshers party will take place on Thursday, 20th Sept from 7pm to 9pm. The entry fee is £3, and students should also bring some change for a juice and crisps. All money raised goes towards the fund – all donations are welcomed.
Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the school office, or visit the Betty Cunningham Website.
Apologies for issuing this a little later this session.
We had held off to finalise certain dates. The school holidays are still not finalised for Session 2019-20 but I can confirm that the school will open to pupils on Monday 19th Aug 2019.
Note that the awards ceremonies are still showing as TBC until the review of recognising achievement is completed.
I would encourage all S3 students who signed up for the Duke of Edinburgh award at the recent freshers’ fair, to attend with a parent or carer.
Important information wil be given out on the night, including registration forms.
I look forward to welcoming you on the evening.
The first panto workshop/rehearsals will take place on Mon 10th & 17th Sept. from 3:45pm-5pm in the Drama Box.
Please come prepared with trainers to do movement.
See Mrs Laverty, Miss Wallace or Mr Selbie with any questions.
One of the most significant effects on a young person’s progress can happen through the engagement of parents/carers in their child’s learning. Barrhead High School has subscribed to ‘Show My Homework’ to remove any barriers there may be for parents accessing/understanding what homework should be completed at home.
We intend in using this Homework App starting Monday 3 September. To prepare for the launch of this initiative your child will have received by the end of the day tomorrow:-
To support you further we have also provided you with an electronic guide. If you wish a paper copy of this please ask your child to collect one from the office staff. Guide for Parents
If you wish you can attend a Help/Information Meeting at Barrhead High School on the Big Steps:
Wednesday 29 August at 1700 hours
Wednesday 29 August at 1800 hours

The Head Teacher is positive that by using the package you will feel more informed and involved in your child’s learning.
Any further information or concerns can be passed to Mrs Crawford – Depute Head (0141 577 2100).
Our annual Higher Education Information Evening will take place tomorrow (Tuesday 28th August) from 6.30 pm.
