You may be aware that for a number of years our school has been working in Partnership with the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice. We are involved each year in a range of fundraising events for the Hospice and indeed, as a result of our donations, we are very proud to say that the Hospice’s Training Room bears our school’s name.
Mr Smith has sent a letter home informing parents about this year’s find raising campaign- Light up a Life.

I am absolutely gob smacked with the fantastic efforts of your school in raising a whopping £5,086 for the GB women. Please pass on a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all the kids and the staff involved, it totally exceeded any expectations we might have had. This for sure will make a difference to our preparations next summer when the girls return from playing pro.
How on earth did you manage to raise so much money? I know Lynne came into the school and spent time at assemblies and some classes, I am sure she was a big inspiration. I am proud and honoured to have Lynne as the captain of the GB team, she is a credit to Scotland, GB and Mearns Castle High School.
Once again, thank you so much for getting behind the GB women’s team and raising money to keep our Olympic journey alive. All the very best. Audrey
I received an e-mail from our partners at The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice which I thought you would be interested to read:
Thank you very much indeed for the kind invitation to attend another “Look Back in Laughter” and what a success it was too…great night. Maisie and I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and really expected nothing less…as always
Congratulations to everyone involved with Charities Week and for reaching your target of £7,000 and some! Best of luck with the balloon race tomorrow and we hope it goes well and you have a clear day.
Warmest wishes to all at Mearns Castle High from all of us here at The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.
Joyce and Maisie
Well done to Callum McGuire, S1 who is the winner of the November Famous Moment in Lego. Callum, along with many others, correctly identified the Great Fire of London, 1666.
Keep your eyes peeled for the new Famous Moment In Lego which is launching this week – answers to any Social Subjects teacher.

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the two evenings of Look Back in Laughter last week. Thanks also to those who bought tickets and came along to support our charity fundraising.
As a result of all our activities this year, we have raised the magnificent sum of £7,550.56, which is some £800 more than last year’s total and the highest amount raised in Charities Week since 2008. So well done to everyone.
