Yesterday was a wet and wonderful afternoon as the P7’s took on a course set up specially for them following their fantastic fundraising efforts. Well done and thank you to those who donated, as we have raised over £800 and counting from sponsorships!
The course had a soggy crawl under tarpaulin, several planks to clamber up, a terrifying looking spiders web, ropes to crawl under whilst being splashed with sponges (or just poured on with buckets!) and lots of different team exercises.
We are delighted to say that every pupil managed to complete the course, but even more importantly, the pupils displayed such great spirit of resilience, support and fun!
It was a definitely a day to feel #ProudToBePinkie !!!
Check out the photos in the gallery for a flavour of the afternoon.

26 pupils spent the day at Meadowmill representing Pinkie at the annual athletics event. The whole team represented the school brilliantly, with lots of encouragement for team mates, every individual trying their hardest and a fun spirit throughout the day.
It was a very blustery day which meant running the top bend of the track was extremely tricky…. This didn’t stop the relay teams though, with all four P6 and 7 teams getting the baton around slickly, and two making it through to the final. A very big well done to the P7 boys who were in a photo finish for third in the final, and the girls who grabbed second place in their P6 final! A special shout out to Jack, who took away a medal after winning the throwing event!
Well done team, we are very proud!
When we return to school on Tuesday, P7’s will be selling tickets for £1 a strip.
The prize pot is growing every day, and even more have been added since the photo was taking by a pupil this morning.
The prizes really are great! Some notable prizes include vouchers for Cakes N Shakes, Amarone, a 60 minute treatment at Valhalla, a range of products to pamper yourself with, a few sweet treats, an electric toothbrush and some fun looking toys!
So the raffle really suits adults and children alike! If you like the sound of supporting the P7 fundraisers, as well as giving yourself a chance to win, be sure to buy from the P7s starting Tuesday 21st.
A massive thank you to the local businesses and school community for the very generous donations.
