The Home Economics Department has supported this cause for a number of years, filling shoeboxes with hats, gloves, toiletries (no more than 250ml sizes), stationery, sweets (no chocolate and dated after March 2014), etc.  All items must be new. We would appreciate help from the rest of the school.  If each form class could manage to fill one box it would help us achieve our target of 200 filled boxes. We sent 176 boxes last year.

 

Boxes should be wrapped with Christmas paper (lid & base separate), we have some available- just let us know if the box is for a male or female and if it is for a child or adult.

 

Send filled boxes to G77 by Friday 20th October, along with a checklist and £2.50 for postage if possible. We will add missing items to boxes if the class does not manage to complete one. We will also take any extra items you may have or if it is easier collect some money and we will put it to good use.

Please speak to any member of HE Department for more information.

 

You can find information, and a checklist, at the site below regarding what is suitable for inclusion in the boxes.

The S4, S5 & S6 Dance Academy pupils, along with Drama ex-pupils Aaron Philip and Danielle Donaldson provided high-quality entertainment during the evening and were a credit to the school.

 

Well done to all those who collected an award last night – and also for those who were nominated and short-leeted and would have been just as worthy recipients.  These include the following projects, groups and individuals:

  • Denny Cluster Reading Assessment
  • The work of the Dance Academy
