A huge ‘Thank You’ to everyone who donated to our collection for Syrian refugees in Greece. They have been collected by our Aberlady families who are travelling to Greece over the October holidays. Their airline has kindly agreed to give them extra luggage space to take their precious cargo of toys, colouring books and toiletries for those refugees who have been forced to leave their homes.
Once again, we are very grateful for the generosity of the Aberlady community.
Today we celebrated Harvest. We considered thankfulness and the Syrian refugee crisis. We have extended the deadline for donations as some of our pupils are still wanting to bring in items for the children. On Friday we will be giving the Aberlady families heading to Greece the boxes of your generous donations to give to the Syrian refugees.
As part of our Scottish Week, we held a Tattie Bogle Competition. Pupils decorated potatoes on a Scottish theme. Some of the entries included an Aberlady Bay Monster, a variety of potato animals and birds, a Scottish Tooth Fairy, bagpipes and many more weird and wonderful ideas.
Congratulations to G., L. and L., who won first prize and runner-up prizes for their wonderful designs.
We also raised £38 for Scottish Shelter, to help support homeless people in Scotland. Thank you everyone who entered.
