In Summer 2016 Mearns House will open across from our school on Waterfoot Road. It is a state of the art care home for the elderly. The new development will include a café, which will also be open to the general public.
Pupils at Mearns Castle have been invited to take part in a competition to name the café. The winning entry will receive an Ipad mini and will also have their idea used as the café name.
To access an entry form for the competition click here or collect one from your Year Head. All entries should be passed to Miss McLachlan by Friday 6th May. Good luck!

Ticket are on sale at the School Office priced £6 and includes pizza.
Licensed bar available.
In March S3 pupils participated in the ‘Headliner’ IDL event. One of the tasks was to create merchandise to promote their band or artist. The finished bags were sent to the school visited by S6 World Challenge pupils in Cambodia during their expedition in June 2015.
