**A THANK YOU MESSAGE RECEIVED**
The Performing Arts Department would like to publicly thank the School Association for their generous funding of ‘Stage in a Box’, which is now being used as part of Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 lessons, exploring the more technical aspects of theatre design and lighting. The set is pictured below – very professional!!
Co-op Local Community Fund
We are delighted to announce that the local Co-op Food Store has selected to support our School Association as part of their ‘Local Community Fund’. Every time you use your Membership Card and purchase Co-op branded products, a portion of the value of your goods will be donated to our cause.
If you aren’t already a member, please be sure to pick up a leaflet in store.
Alternatively, you can join the scheme by visiting the Co-op website.
Our Science Department have recently been the grateful recipients of funding from the School Association which has allowed them to buy ten new state-of-the-art microscopes. Mr Buchanan, Head of Science, said “Our current microscopes were of a high standard in their day but some of them are nearly as old as the school and we can no longer get parts for them. Without the help of the School Association making large one off purchases like this is very difficult. These microscopes will serve the school for a minimum of another 20 years which is a great legacy for all those involved in raising the funds. I would like to thank members of the School Association, and those who attend their events, for their help on behalf of the Science Department and the students here at QEII High School”.
