Congratulations to Jaimie Cook

A massive CONGRATULATIONS to one of our S1 pupils Jaimie Cook.  Jaimie not only retained his British U14 Foil (Fencing) title at the British Youth Championships at the weekend, it was infact the THIRD time he has won the title.

Not only that but he has been selected to compete for Scotland at the Junior and Cadet Commonwealth Fencing Championships at both under 17 and under 20 age groups, making him the youngest competitor from any country ever to take part.

We are all very proud of Jaimie and wish him luck for the Commonwealth Fencing Championships.

Hats4Kira

CCHS Pupils, Staff and Parents 

We have raised £372.65 today – which is brilliant given that half the school is on study leave. 

We hope all goes well when Kira gets to New York.

Hats4Kira – tomorrow Friday 4th May

Kira The Machine Appeal

We are having a Hats4Kira day on Friday 4th May.  This is completely optional but if the Staff and Pupils want to pay £1  to wear a hat/silly hairstyle or wig to school on that day it would support a great cause.

Many of you may have seen footage recently on TV and social media of the campaign for Kira the Machine.  Kira is a 14 year old from Craiglockhart who is a pupil at Firrhill High School.  She has been fighting high-risk Neuroblastoma since she was 11.  She urgently needs an operation to completely remove the disease.  Despite gruelling treatment and three operations already, her cancer has come back twice.

Now her best hope of being disease-free is life-saving surgery in the USA by a world renowned specialist surgeon in New York.

Kira’s family have to raise £350,000 by 10th May and are desperately appealing to raise funds.
