Ella Duffy, 6th year, is fundraising for a charity called Project Trust, with whom she will be volunteering in her gap year in Guyana. She needs volunteer supervisors for an event she is organizing for 13 December (Friday). This is a Christmas ‘Jingle Ball’, with live music from a few bands from within and outside school, and tickets will be sold to S4-S6 students from Broughton and other schools. She is required to have a 1:10 adult-to-young-person ratio. She currently has 15 teachers to help; she anticipates needing 15 more adult volunteers.
Would you would be willing to supervise from the balcony in the Hub, from 6:15pm (the event starts at 6:30) until 9:30pm? Please drop us an ‘intouch’ e-mail if you can, and we’ll let Ella know she has more help.
Don’t forget, the Parent Council’s annual general meeting is tonight, at the school, at 7:00 p.m. For S1 parents who want to meet each other, there’s a social hour beforehand, at 6:00 (logically enough).
You’re invited to read the reports and accounts beforehand, online, for the detailed view of everything that’s going on.
See you there!
You may have heard of the ‘Broughton Association’, and wondered what it is.
Answer: the fundraising arm of the Parent Council. The general idea is to organise social activities to deepen relations between staff, parents, and others associated with the school, and to make money to donate to various places in school — club trips, for example, or learning materials, or things like software licences.
Want to get involved? The BA meets the first Wednesday of the month during term time (6.30-7.30pm).
