Balfron High School has a new timetable for the new 2016-2017 session.Tuesday is the longer day and lessons start at 8:45am. As the first day back for Balfron High School pupils is a Tuesday, it is worth reminding all of the young people of the change! The new S1 should go straight to the theatre for a short assembly and from there they will be taken to their form class. Usually there is no form class on a Tuesday morning but to help with a smooth transition into the new term, all S2-6 pupils…See More

Meal Maker

There is a possibility that a hot meal could be provided for people in their own homes on a Thursday. This would be an extension of the Lunch club and the idea is that someone would come with a meal and stay for a short time to have a 'blether. It would be for those who are unable to come to Lunch club due to infirmity, ill health or just home from hospital. We are interested in getting people's opinions about this.
