Children in Need 2019
Well done to all young people and staff who raised a fantastic £1255.29 for Children in Need. Special thanks to Mirren (S6), the Charities Committee and Office Staff for all your hard work.
Stirling High School Charity Walk
For many years now, Stirling High School’s Eco Club have organised a charity sponsored walk for all of our first year pupils. The walk takes us into the local community and the whole procession of young people, many in fancy dress, is quite a sight to see. It is a great fun and well supported by staff, young people, parents and carers alike. As well as raising money, the walk also raises the awareness for the charity we support. This year the charity chosen was Home Start in Stirling.
Home-Start Stirling offers friendly, informal support by matching families with a suitable volunteer who will visit them in their own home. Home-Start Stirling can help any family who has at least one child under the age of five years, and are experiencing some kind of stress and/or crisis. Home Start supports families who live across the Stirling local authority area.
Rachel Keenan, manager at Home Start, visited the school to thank everyone involved and told us how much our fund raising efforts had been appreciated. Mr Cassidy, Head Teacher and Mrs Togneri, Senior Technician and Eco Club Leader, along with representatives from each first year classes involved in the walk as well as senior helpers presented a cheque for £1115.25 to Rachel for Home Start.
Head Teacher Mr Cassidy said ‘We are all very proud of the efforts of our S1 pupils to raise such a fantastic amount for a worthy local charity.’ (photo attached)
