The One In Five group are constantly looking for ways to reduce the cost of the school day. We are currently focussing on the S6 Prom, as we would like to ensure that cost is not a barrier to taking part in this event.
In conjunction with the school Prom Committee we plan to set up a pop up boutique, selling preloved prom outfits at a reasonable price. Not only will this ensure that all pupils can afford a prom outfit, but all monies raised will go towards lowering the cost of this yearly celebration.
If your son or daughter would like to donate their old prom outfit, we are currently receiving donations at the downstairs reception during school hours.
Many thanks for considering our appeal for donations.
Pupil Support Leader
Thanks to the generosity of pupils, guardians and staff we were able to donate 3 massive boxes of gifts to this Appeal. Thanks so much to everyone involved In making a difference to local children living in poverty. We are touched by your kindness.
Mrs Thompson and the One In Five Group
I am sure you will all agree at this time of year most of us spend a considerable amount of money on luxuries for Christmas. However, several families in our local community are not in a position to do this, therefore, I am coordinating a collection of food (non-perishable) from Thursday 14th December – Thursday 21 December. I am sure you will all support me in making Christmas a little easier for others who are struggling at this time of year with your generous donations.
The Churches of Balerno, Kirknewton and Ratho all have food banks and I intend to deliver the food next Thursday afternoon/evening.
If you would like to hand in any donations to reception by next Thursday 21 December at lunchtime, I would be most grateful.
Thank you in advance,
