Something to do over the break ………

Sort out your wardrobe!! Have you got good quality clothes that you never wear but keep because you’ll:     lose weight or grow taller / chestier / sexier  to fit them one day.

Well forget that –  it’s time to recycle! Donate them to the PHS parent council , and we’ll set them all out in our very own pop-up shop.   All profits will go towards improving life at PHS.

If you’d like to donate clothes, we’d prefer you to drop them off to the school any time now (you can leave them with the janitor) or you could bring them along on the day.   Any good quality female clothes or accessories are very welcome.

And on Thursday, 5th March 2015  come along to see our Porty pupil fashion show, enjoy good company –  and get yourself a new (to you) outfit..
