Supporting charities is an important part of the Hutchie ethos and every year pupils, parents and staff fundraise for a specific charity.

Every session pupils and staff at both Kingarth Street and Beaton Road are given the opportunity to nominate a charity for support. All nominations are reviewed by the School Charity Committee, which is made up of pupils, teachers and support staff, and together a decision is made on the selected charity for the session. In this way our pupil Charity Representatives are empowered to make meaningful decisions that will impact on the wider community. This year’s charity is the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA).
