Charities Week

Charities Week begins next Monday (31st October). The usual range of activities will be on offer, as well as a few surprises.  Details of the activities are displayed on the many posters around the school and in the special handouts which will be distributed during lunchtimes this week in the Open Area and the Dining Hall.

Tickets for the lunchtime shows are on sale every day this week in the Open Area during lunchtimes.  Price is £1.50 per ticket.  Please note that only pupils who are ‘On Colour’ may purchase tickets.  You are advised to buy your tickets early in the week as they sell very quickly.  Details of the acts for each of the shows are on display on the notice board beside the Theatre.

Careers Fair

Our annual Careers Convention takes place tonight

Wednesday 26th October in the Open Area.

It promises to be an interesting and informative evening with representatives from Universities and Colleges and from many diverse careers such as Armed Forces, Dentistry and Veterinary. In order to cope with the large number we expect to attend, we would ask that pupils and parents from S2 and S3 attend from 6pm to 7pm and S4, 5 and 6 from 7pm to 8pm.

Charities Week

Charities Week – starts on Monday 31st October.

Every year the pupils at Mearns Castle raise large amounts of money during this week by taking part in many different and imaginative activities.  Last year, almost £7000 was raised and subsequently disbursed among a number of charities, each chosen by the pupils themselves.
