Lockers – Fundraiser: Do you want lockers at Balerno High School for your use?   Yes?   Well, we need your help to get us there!   Without your help, we can’t do it.

On 9th November a Clothes Swap/Sale fundraiser event is taking place in the concourse at the school.   All proceeds will be going towards your lockers.  Donations of clothes, shoes and accessories are needed so start clearing out your wardrobes now.  Drop off times are on the posters around the school.

There are also fun fashion shows on the day – models and other volunteers are needed for the fashion show including hair and make up specialists, dressers and backstage helpers.  We also need help with refreshments and ‘shop assistants’ on the day.   It promises to be a really fun event so pass your name and contact details to Miss Wright now and we will be in touch with you.

Tickets are priced at £5 and are available from the front office.   One ticket = one free item.   Entry and tickets will be available to purchase on the day.

Thanks in advance for your help and remember to get your names in now!
