Pupils raised over a £1000 in the Easter holidays with their Fundraising Fiver enterprise projects! Wow! This is an incredible amount of money to raise. Pupils were really inventive and creative – sponsored walks, cake sales, trampolines, bob a job etc. A huge thank you to all the nursery children, pupils and parents who participated! Lots of new Apprentices in the making!
Some of the money raised has bought our hen hut. Ailsa Russell, who raised the most money, named one of the hens. She has decided to call it Henrietta. The other hens are called Pecky and Chupty! We had a hen party on Friday to celebrate.
Primary 3/4 have made a new special place in our school community. It is for quiet time! It is called Rest ‘n’ Relax. In the area there are pillows and cuddly toys. There is a net surrounding it. It is communal throughout the school and there are rules to follow in it. Come and try our relaxing area if you like!
Our parent group H2H are running their enterprise project, Fundraising Fiver, again this Easter. It was very successful last year and the pupils ideas were very innovitive!
