Help required! Broughton Association

The Broughton High School Association (BHSA) is the fundraising arm of the Parent Council. We raise money to support BHS students. For example, the money we raise pays for:
  • School ties for all S1 pupils
  • Sports strips
  • Classroom resources
  • Other activities
  • Subsidies the cost of school trips
BHSA meets on the first Thursday of the month during term time, from 7-8pm, usually in the Waitrose Community Room but sometimes in the school. This year, a number of our members are leaving as they will no longer have children attending the school. We need to recruit new members so that we can carry on with fundraising. We are looking for people to help with the following:
  • Attending meetings and helping to organise fundraising activities
  • Volunteering to help at the Saturday morning cafe (this runs in term time and provides hot drinks and snacks for parent and children attending the Youth Music Initiative classes and other activities) Shifts are one hour long.
  • Volunteering to help at occasional Sunday Chess Cafes (these are held in the school 4-5 times a year)
  • Providing home baking for YMI Cafe or the Chess Cafes
  • Making soup for the Chess Cafes
  • Volunteering to help at events, e.g. Septemberfest

Please note that you do not have to do all of the above! You can help as much or as little as you like. We would also be very interested to hear from anyone who can help keep our accounts in order.

If you would like to be added to our mailing list, or to help with any specific activities please email us on bhsassociation@gmail.com
With best wishes,
Broughton High School Association

Volunteers needed for Chess Café – Sunday 3rd March

The Broughton Association are looking for volunteers to help at our cafe on Sunday 3rd March at Broughton High. We provide cafes at the regular chess tournaments held at the school – this helps raise valuable funds for extra resources, trips, support, and extra-curricular clubs and activities. You’ll find us in the Hub.

So, if you can spare an hour (or more) between 10 and 4, or provide some baking, that would be lovely.   Come along, meet other Broughton High parents and help your child’s school!

Susan Gibb, Liaison Manager of the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), will be explaining the range of qualifications offered by schools and how this links to what appears in the August Certificate. She will also be explaining the resources available to parents and carers from the SQA website and will answer any questions.

This event will either be held in the School Theatre Space or the School Staff Room depending on the number of parents and carers attending, so please RSVP to clerk.bhspc@broughtonhighpc.org if you wish to attend. Light refreshments will be provided.

The next Broughton High School Parent Council Meeting will follow the event at 7.30pm in the School Staff Room.
