Call for volunteer — 200 Club Administrator

hot off the press

The 200 Club is run jointly to raise funds for the Broughton Association and Stockbridge PSA.  Over the past 10 years over £19,000 has been raised, which has been used to enhance the experience of students outwith the core curriculum provided through the school budgets.

After nearly 6 years, Corinne Wilson is about to hang up her calculator; many thanks to Corinne for her sterling work behind the scenes!

We are now seeking a new Club Administrator to assist with the monthly draws.  It’s not an onerous task (most months the draw takes less than 30 minutes), but it does really require two people to be present to ensure fair play.

If you’re interested, or would like to find out more, please contact Graeme Robertson on

Final funding for ‘Young Applicants in Schools’ short course scheme

This is the last year that the Scottish Government will fund full-time students in secondary education to study additional short courses, such as those offered by the Open University.

What should you do if you’re interested in securing funding for one of these?

Apply for an ILA £200 account NOW. You can phone 0808 100 1090 to request an application form. Or you can apply online. If you are applying online, you need to let them know that you are working but earning less than £22,000 per annum.

You’ll need to move quickly. After 18th June, the ILA will not issue any more application forms. Yours should be completed and returned to them by 28th July at the very latest. Application forms received after this date will not be considered.


In case we have Flora Stevenson parents receiving this, here is a message just in from Flora Stevenson School:

‘Due to a Health & Safety issue at Flora Stevenson Primary School, on a precautionary basis, we are transferring the children this morning to Broughton High School.  Please arrange for your child to be collect from Broughton High School as soon as you are able.  Please note the school will also be closed tomorrow, Friday 16 March.’
