Fashion Show

The Parent Council held another great Fashion Show in February 2011, raising almost £1,000 for school funds.  It was a super evening and our senior pupils did themselves proud as they strutted down the catwalk.


Thanks very much to the parents and carers involved in this undertaking; Carol McDonald, Liz Meikle, Sheila Morris and Christine Swinney. Those involved were very grateful for the technical support of Alex Read and Angus Ireland. Also thanks to Butterflies, Pretty Woman, Susan Gregory, Top Hat, Bowdens, The Kilt Hire, Republic and Joy who provided great outfits.
