Friends at Braes

Friends at Braes

Friends at Braes is the school's parent-led fundraising group, and as a Parents' Association, the group plays a tremendous part in the life and work of the school. The main purpose of Friends at Braes is fundraising for the school, and the group have made significant contributions to a wide variety of developments over many years. However, Friends at Braes is also about supporting the wider school community. By supporting events in school, FAB contribute enormously to supporting our school's positive ethos, bringing a real parent-school partnership to many events such as concerts, exhibitions, information events and primary/secondary transition activities. Obviously in more recent times, the ability to hold `normal' events has been restricted. However, even during the current circumstances, FAB has remained active, inventive and supportive of the school. Friends at Braes meetings are, as the name suggests, friendly, but also positive, constructive and most importantly, all about the young people of Braes High School. Pupils often appear at these meetings, bringing proposals and ideas to the group. At present, meetings are being held online, and it has been great to see such positive discussion continuing in this different way of getting together. Friends at Braes is also heavily involved in supporting fellow Braes families, through uniform recycling and also by promoting school events and information.
