Weekly Bulletin – Monday 6th March 2017

A quick and easy way to show your support for ‘No smoking day’ is to sign-up to the
No Smoking Day Thunderclap at this address: http://bit.ly/2k7qRNp.
We hope this will help raise awareness of tobacco misuse by young people and the resources available to all those that are trying to stop smoking. At Firrhill High School our young people are entitled to 100% clean fresh air. Please support our smoke free campus.

Lost property displayed during February will be given to charity later this month. If you have lost items of clothing please see Miss Barley before 20th March, when the clothing will be uplifted.
