Thursday 24th March will be a dress up / dress down day to help raise money for local charities. A dedicated group of S5 pupils have been working hard to plan the event along with other mini-fundraisers on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th March. This is part of their long-term dedication to supporting social needs in the local area. These pupils have been part of the YPI (Youth Philanthropy Initiative) this academic session and are all keen to make sure that they carry on helping to support local charities.
Through their participation with the YPI programme each year, our S5 pupils have been helping charities receive a £3000 grant to help support the work they do to support those in need. Over £21,000 has been given to local charities over the past 7 years.
Please make sure you do your part and get involved today and tomorrow! There will be a teacher wax-off in DO-69 (Mr McEwan’s teaching room) on Thursday 24th at lunchtime. Come see your teachers in pain!
