    Jeans For Genes Awareness Day 

    On Sunday 23rd September 2018, Brighton College will recognise Jeans for Genes Awareness Day. The aim of this day is not to raise money for charity, but instead, to raise awareness of genetic disorders. On this day pupils are allowed to wear denim jeans instead of normal school trousers or skirts. Pupils must still wear the top half of their uniform. Footwear can also be an alternative to school shoes, but must be appropriate for school, i.e. no heels, no flip flops etc.

    Free Taster Sessions – Piano, Guitar or Drums

    The Music department are offering free individual taster lessons on either piano, guitar or drums.

This will be on a first come first served basis and once email confirmation has been received, your child will then have their free taster lesson. If interested or you require more information on the instrumental programme, please email pconte@brightoncollegealain.ae.

It needs to be clear, campaign ideas well thought-out and interesting.
