Parent testimonial

"We are awestruck by the strong ethos towards empowering girls to try their hand at anything and the large number of extra-curricular school activities available and the strong emphasis on a well-rounded education. Everyone we have interacted with from Trish to Harry the bus driver have been kind and caring and we are in no doubt that sending our daughter to Kilgraston was the best decision we have made for her future."

'Wear it again' day raises money for local charity CHAS

CHAS receive cheque from Kilgraston School


Senior Community Fundraiser, Laura Campbell, received a cheque for £206.89 on behalf of charity, the Children’s Hospices Across Scotland, from Kilgraston Sixth Form pupil, Carla R, at the Bridge of Earn School on Thursday 27 June.

The money was raised by pupils who donated funds during their recent ‘Wear it again’ vintage clothing day, when everyone had to don outfits over ten years’ old, highlighting the huge environmental impact of so-called ‘fast fashion’.

Receiving the cheque, Laura commented: “Thank you so much to everyone at Kilgraston School and a special thanks to Carla for suggesting CHAS. We greatly appreciate the donation.”

Sixth-Form pupil Carla is Kilgraston’s ambassador for CHAS and a volunteer with the charity. One of the main purposes of her role is to help others understand how the charity works and what it means to those involved.

Commenting on her involvement with the charity, she said: “Sick children and their families can stay in hospices to receive support with their conditions and focus on the quality of their life, however long or short that may be.” Carla continued: “Many of these children may not have a lot of time left in their life, so the primary focus of the hospice is to help these children to live each day to the full – CHAS is dedicated to giving the children the opportunities to create treasured memories.”

For over twenty years CHAS has been offering a full family support service for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions at their two centres in Balloch and Kinross. This service includes palliative care, family respite and support – through hospices, homecare services and hospital presence.
