Rotary Shoebox Appeal 2019

As a school we feel that it is very important for our students to support others within the wider community and in some cases, some of the most deprived countries in the world.  Following on from this, the staff and students in Howes Hoose are organising the Rotary Shoebox Appeal this year.

You do not have to send in any money and we are not asking for families to fill a shoebox but rather send in donations from the list shown below.   This will allow our students to organise and fill the shoeboxes in school.  We have found in previous years that the best way is to buy a multi-pack of an item and we will divide these up between boxes.  The items do not have to be expensive and could be things you have at home which you no longer want, so long as they are in good condition.

If you could please send donations in by Friday 1st November to allow the students time to pack them up ready for collection on the 8th November so they can be distributed in time for Christmas.

Thank you once again for your amazing support.

 

Red Nose Fun In Room 11

Room 11 had great fun celebrating Comic Relief.  We decorated red nose pictures and tried on special red nose day glasses.  Don’t you think we look fabulous?

World Downs Syndrome Day

Tomorrow is World Down Syndrome Day and we would love it if everyone in school could show their support by joining in their Lots of Socks Campaign.
So come on everyone. Get your odd socks on and we’ll see who is wearing the craziest combinations tomorrow!

 

Thank You From Howes Hoose

The students and staff in Howes Hoose would like to thank everyone that supported and came along to their fundraiser in February at the Sunnybank Social Club.

We would also like to thank everyone who donated to the raffle – there are honestly too many to mention! We were overwhelmed with the gifts, vouchers and hotel stays that were donated.

We raised a total of £2500 on the night and are still filling in the Pick A Date calendar to win a signed Aberdeen Football Club top and football. The money raised will go towards supporting the students working towards their Duke of Edinburgh Scotland award and trips to the Bendrigg Trust.

Spring Fundraiser

Some students from North East Scotland College have kindly arranged a Spring Afternoon Tea Fundraiser in aid of Orchard Brae.
The event is being held Jaffs Bar and Restaurant in Dunecht on Saturday 27th April from 2-4pm. Tickets are priced at £15 and are available from Howes Hoose.
Any donations for the raffle would also be gratefully received and can be handed into Howes Hoose.

 

Raising Money for Comic Relief

Our amazing Makaton Choir, dancers and drummers  had great fun entertaining the whole school with their favourite songs as a fundraiser for Comic Relief.

We are also raising money through our World Book Day Book and DVD trolley and all the money received will be donated to Comic Relief. Total raised so far is £240.

The students and staff in Howes Hoose have also been busy selling red noses around the school. They have raised an amazing £90 and they have donated a further £50 from their soup making enterprise. A huge well done to everyone in Howes Hoose for their total of £140! (Photos to follow!)
