Charities Week

A very big thank you to everyone in the school for contributing to a very successful Charities Week.  The total raised at this point is £5,400, which is well up on the figure at this time last year, so well done to everyone!

We now finish off our fundraising activities with ‘Look Back in Laughter’ – the evening shows which feature a selection of the acts from the Charities Week lunchtime shows.  The two Look Back in Laughter shows take place next Monday and Tuesday evenings (Monday 21st Nov and Tues 22nd Nov) from 7.30pm until 9.45pm and friends, relations, mums, dads, aunties and uncles are all welcome.  Tickets cost £3 each and are on sale all this week at lunchtimes in the Open Area.  As ever, tickets will only be sold to pupils who are ‘on colour’.

Tickets for the Great Balloon Race and the Golden Ticket raffle will be on sale up until the Tuesday of Look Back in Laughter. These tickets will also be on sale at lunchtimes in the Open Area every day this week.

Let’s get the total up to £7,000!!  Buy your tickets this week !!

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.
