Brechin High School pupils and staff took part in many fund-raising activities on Friday, September 30, to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Pupils began by taking part in the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ which ran from 10 am to 12 noon.

At the coffee morning, as well as tea and coffee, pupils managed to sell cakes and biscuits they had made during Brechin High’s ‘bake-off’ earlier on in the week.

Members of staff attended the coffee morning at interval and other classes attended during the morning.

Other fund-raising activities included a dress-as-you-please day where pupils were encouraged to wear green to support Macmillan Cancer Support.

The Pupil Council took a major lead in organising the event.

Activities included: A Tombola using contributions of goodies from staff; Teacher’s Got Talent and a Teachers’ Fashion Show at lunchtime; And an afternoon ceilidh, to which all pupils were invited to buy a ticket and take part in.

The ceilidh band provided the music and Mr Rowlands took the pupils through the dances.

It was a fantastic day and the school managed to raise in excess of £860.
