Rachel and Robin’s Big Read

On Friday 27th May, all of  our S1 pupils will be participating in Rachel and Robin’s Big Read by reading silently, taking turns reading aloud, and/or being read to.  This is Portobello High School’s way of raising money for this cause.


CHAS provides the only hospice services for children and young people in Scotland with life-shortening conditions.  We hope that we can raise awareness of the needs of families who are touched by life-shortening conditions as well as raise money for this charity.


Please support CHAS by sponsoring our S1 pupils and encouraging friends, family and neighbours to contribute to this worthwhile cause.

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.
