Charities Week will take place at the end of this month – Monday 31st October until Friday 4th November.
We urgently need pupils to fill the slots in each of the lunchtime shows that week – we are looking for singers, dancers, instrumentalists, bands, comedians, jugglers, acrobats, unicyclists – you name it ! As long as it is entertaining, we want it in the shows.
You need to be quick, however. To appear in one of the shows, you need to get an application form from Mr O’Donnell (Room F3, Maths), complete the form and hand it back to him by next Thursday at the latest.
The school show for next June will be ‘Our house’. This is a contemporary musical based on the music of Madness and is a great show with lots of lead and smaller parts.
There will be a meeting on Thursday 6th October at 12.30 in Music Room C3 where you will get more information about the show.
So if you are interested in Acting, Signing, Dancing or even want to help out backstage then please come along to the meeting.
On Sunday 30th October Mary’s Meals are holding an open day with a series of events looking at the work that charity undertakes in the developing world including Malawi. There will also be a talk by the founder of Mary’s Meals along with music and stalls.
For the last three years Mearns Castle has helped support this charity so if you are keen to see where your money and backpacks go then this event is for you.
If you are in S4-S6 and are interested in attending then please see Mr Hutchison.
The S1 Fun Run and a ‘Non Uniform’ Day for the whole school are taking place on Thursday 22 September to raise money for the ‘Adopt an Olympian’ scheme in support of Lynne Beattie, former Head Girl and current captain of the GB Women’s Olympic Volleyball Team.
