Due to changes in the benefit system, redundancy or debt, individuals and families can find themselves having to choose between food, electricity and rent. Edinburgh NW and Central Foodbank can provide people with short-term emergency food parcels whilst the crisis is addressed. Our S6 Charities Committee are running a campaign to support this crisis – please help us by donating food from the urgently needed and low on stock lists.
We also collect hygiene items such as: deodorant, shampoo, razors, shaving foam & toilet roll. All food must be long life and not fresh to allow their long term storage. Please check Best Before End (BBE) dates.

All self found forms should be returned to Mrs MacPhie as soon as possible. Just a wee reminder that it is our s4 student’s responsibility to be sourcing a job either through finding their own or by selecting a placement from school database which they have all had access too. There are a number of applicants for some jobs so interviews will determine who is offered the placement. This will happen in due course. Please speak with your son\daughter to find out how they are getting on with selecting a placement. Work Experience drop in sessions happen Thursday lunchtimes in Mrs MacPhie’s office to answer\help with any queries.
