The Journey To Change committee is hosting a Quiz Night on 4th December 2015, in the Selkirk High School Assembly Hall, from 7.30 until 10pm. Tickets are £15 and this covers a team of four. There will be a quiz, food, drinks, and a raffle. There are great prizes to be won, and it looks to be a  great night. Tickets can be bought at the school office, or phone the school  on 01750 720246 and ask for Jenna Swan, OR you can email jenna.swan@scotborders.gov.uk

Journey To Change is a pupil run committee operating in Selkirk High School and Lasswade High School. The committee aims to create links between pupils in South Africa and Scotland, and also to tackle many issues facing young people around the world, such as gender discrimination. The committee last year participated in a conference with both Lasswade and South African pupils, and also hosted a group of South African pupils in Selkirk for the day. This year, the committee aims to go even further and do much more.

The money raised by the quiz goes towards the money needed to bring over two South African students to Selkirk for a week. The committee needs to find the costs to not only bring them over, but support them over the week they are here. We need to raise at least £700 by January 2016, and any contribution will help. So far, the committee has held Dress Down Days and bake sales within the school, and has spoken to public groups such as the Rotary Club, to raise public awareness about the Journey To Change committee and what they are intending to do over the next school year.

Please do try to make it along to the Quiz Night on 4th December. It will be a great evening and will raise money for a great cause.
