#PRIDE - Youth and Philanthropy Initiative

On Thursday, our S3 groups delivered excellent presentations showcasing their chosen charity.  A panel consisting of young people, school staff, a parent and external visitors were very impressed with the high standard of all the groups.  Congratulations and well done to the team who championed Callum’s Trust, this charity will now be awarded £3000.

Would you like to provide a home to a golden bee?

The Golden Swarm is a wonderful project but our bees have had their day to shine.  We thought how wonderful if would be if our bees could fly across Kelso and make new homes in our community to remember The Golden Swarm.  So we are selling the bees to raise money for  Support for Learning at KHS.  The S3 PDA/Enterprise class have been tasked with selling 500 bees at £1 each.

The deadline to place an order is 7th February and deliveries will be made w/c 11th February.
