Balwearie High School

Family Support

Balwearie School Foodbank.

Balwearie would like to announce the opening of the school Foodbank.  We are aware there are a number of families who would value some support throughout the year and cannot easily access the town’s Foodbank. We have therefore created one of our own. We stock a variety of cans, snacks, packets, biscuits, cereal and UHT milk . If you feel you could do with an extra help at any point please do not hesitate to get in touch balweariehs.enquiries@fife.gov.uk

 

Balwearie Uniform Bank.

As school we strive to insure all our pupils can wear full school uniform. We are therefore planning a uniform bank which will be available from Summer 2019. If you wish to use this service or you wish to donate please get in touch - balweariehs.enquiries@fife.gov.uk

 

Breakfast Club.

We would like to remind you that we run a breakfast club every morning this is free and open to all pupils balweariehs.enquiries@fife.gov.uk

 

Menstrual products
