Children in Need

This year the school raised £607.61 through its Talent Show ‘Strictly Come Singalong’ and its Bring and Buy Sale. All pupils watched fourteen acts perform in the show and had the chance to vote for their favourites. The winning act was  the Pensioners! The Bring and Buy stalls were manned by P7 pupils. Thanks to Mrs Watson and Mrs McLean for organising the events.

The PTA’s Quiz Night at Stronvaar Bowling Club raised £396.00 for PTA funds. The focus of fundraising this year is the development of IT and playgrounds resources and equipment. Thanks to the members of the PTA for giving up their time to organise an entertaining evening.
