22/11/13 - Community Out in Force for Christmas Fayre
Once again, local community members came out in force to support Newtownhamilton High at the annual Christmas Fayre on Thursday 21 November. The event, which was run by our energetic School Association, attracted a very large crowd on the evening with £858.60 raised (to date) for school funds.
A wide variety of stalls were on display and despite the current challenging economic climate, stall holders reported of healthy profits on the night. Four stalls were also run by our Year 9 Young Enterprise students as part of their preparations for their trip to the 'QuickStart' programme at Rushmere Shopping Centre in February 2014.
During the Fayre, recently elected Association Chairman Mr George Blackwood paid tribute to the work of his predecessor Mr Jim Harrison and also thanked School Association members, parents, stall holders and community members for their contributions to a really successful Christmas Fayre. Mr Blackwood concluded by encouraging all parents to continue to support Mr Mullan and his staff by getting involved in future School Association events.
