Old Coins for Malawi

PLEASE DONATE YOUR UNWANTED FOREIGN CURRENCY AND OLD COINS TO HELP FUNDRAISING FOR THIS SUMMER’S VISIT TO MALAWI

Do you have foreign coins, notes, and old currency cluttering up your drawers? Do you keep them in case they “come in handy” but never actually use them? Would you be willing to donate them to help our fundraising?

In June, North Berwick High School pupils will travel to Malawi to:

  • Learn about life in a developing country and share music and culture with pupils at their partner school
  • Help build new classrooms
  • Work with the charity Mary’s Meals and in the school kitchen
  • Distribute back packs containing essential school equipment
  • Visit an orphanage and work with teenagers at an HIV/AIDS centre

The pupils are working hard to raise funds for their trip.   Please support them by donating your unwanted currency.

For collection, hand your coins to Mr Jones or Mr Roderick.

Family Programme

I would like to let you know about a new service provided by the National Autistic Society. We have just set up a service for Parents of a child on the Autistic Spectrum. We will provide a free telephone advice line, along with seminars across Scotland on troublesome areas such as First Steps, Sensory Needs, Toilet Training, Managing Anger and Teen Life.  After these two stages are well on the go we will also be providing intensive guidance to some families that are particularly struggling – this differs from support as we are there to guide the parent allowing them to become empowered and understand the behaviour and create effective home life strategies.
