Light up a Life

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.

Messages of Thanks – Received by Mr Smith

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.

Kindest regards

Joyce and Maisie

Charities Week

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.

Balloon Race

You’ve Bought the Balloon. Now See it Set Off on its Journey!

The release of the balloons for the Mearns Castle High School annual Balloon Race will take place on Friday 25th Nov at the top of the steps behind the school at 12.45pm.

If you have bought a ticket then come wish your balloon well as it sets off on its journey into the unknown! Even if you haven’t bought a ticket, come take part in the Big Countdown and then watch the awesome sight of 500 balloons being released into the sky.

Remember if your Balloon is found furthest from the school it will be you that is flying “Up, Up and Away” with 2 return tickets to one of the fantastic destinations courtesy of British Airways.
