S3 Youth Philanthropy Initiative

All of our S3 students are now embarking on this adventure through their SE time. They have been busy working in teams identifying social issues that they can relate to with a view to representing a charity which identifies itself in helping these issues. They will soon be contacting their chosen charities to gather information as to what support they offer and will be using their findings to build a presentation on that selected charity. This is a great project for our students and one that we would ask that you support at home.


Congratulations to Sarah Brown who has been chosen as Young Ambassador for Children & Young People’s Commissioner of Scotland. Great achievement Sarah!

Friday 22nd September – Dress Down Day

This coming Friday will see Forrester High School host its first dress down day of the new school year.

Learners can donate £1 to wear non-uniform.

Following the passing of Miss Anna Burnett, the S6 charity committee have elected to use the monies raised to purchase a memorial bench in her memory and as a lasting reminder of the sterling job Anna did at Forrester High School.

Any extra monies raised will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Sports Aid

Between the 25th September- 1st October all S1-S3 students will challenge themselves to clock up as many miles as they can during their PE lessons. Students will swim, run, cycle or walk for Sports Aid. We hope to clock up 650 miles as a school. If you feel you would like to contribute to this and are able to support Sports Aid, please use the link below or  Text “FHSS17” followed by the amount you wish to donate to 70070, e.g “FHSS17 £1″.

Your support is much appreciated.
