    Brighton Breakfast

    GCSE pupils are hosting a Brighton breakfast on Monday 5th of February, as part of their GCSE Business course. The event will take place at Break time (9.50 – 10.10) am in the Girls’ Dining Hall and they are hoping for your support in order to make this project a success. The main objective is to raise money for the Red Crescent, and to challenge themselves. They would greatly appreciate your help in making their business idea come to life.
     
    If you wish to support them, please give your child/children a sum of money to enable them to purchase the goods sold at the Brighton Breakfast. For further enquiries, please contact Mr Jay Graham at jgraham@brightoncollegealain.ae
