On Monday 16th December Mearns Castle High School will take part in its very own ‘Christmas Jumper Day’.
Staff and pupils are asked to make a £1 donation to wear their Christmas Jumper – you may even want to design your own. If you don’t fancy wearing a winter woolly you can accessorise yourself in a festive way for the same £1 donation.
Earn house points for the best Christmas Jumper when your class can vote in period 7.
A panel of judges will also vote for the BEST or WORST Christmas Jumper worn by a teacher.
S2 pupils are selling their homemade Christmas baking at interval and lunchtime; everyone can have Polaroid pictures taken with their mates in festive attire, and/or you can take part in Christmas Karaoke at lunchtime in the open area.
All money made will go to the Save the Children Philippines Typhoon Appeal. To book your bake sale table or if you have any questions please see Christmas Jumper Day organiser Kate Jarvie in S2.
The final part of Charities Week – Look Back in Laughter – takes place on the evenings of Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th November. These two evening shows will feature the pick of the acts from the lunchtime shows and you are asked to bring along your mum and dad, aunties, uncles, grannies, grandpas, big brothers and sisters, friends and neighbours to the shows so that can see and enjoy the wonderful talent that we had on display during Charities Week.
The shows last from 7.30pm until about 9.45pm each evening. The draw for the Charities Week raffles will take place on the second night of Look Back in Laughter.
Tickets are priced at £3 each and this includes tea, coffee, and biscuits during the interval – a real bargain.
Tickets are on sale from today in the open area at lunchtime and we will sell them every day at lunchtime for the rest of this week and all next week until they are sold out.
All members MUST attend a meeting on Tuesday 22 October at 12.30 in Miss Khan’s room (F10) to finalise arrangements for Charities Week. All posters/advertising should be emailed to Mrs Hamilton or Miss Khan prior to the meeting.
The time has come to get your thinking caps on about how you can help us raise even more than last year from Charities Week. Whether you want to rival the Great British Bake Off with your cake stall, make something creative to sell or even have an idea for a sports competition we want all your ideas now!
If you have any ideas that you think could help us raise money then come and collect an entry form from Miss Khan in Maths (F10) or Mrs Hamilton in Business Education (D14). These forms then need to be back with us by Thursday 10 October so that we can turn your ideas into reality and raise lots of money for charity!
